Getting the right environment for your rabbits is vital. Our recommendations are based on research, where it exists. One thing that all welfare organisations agree on is that A Hutch Is Not Enough. We recommend a minimum enclosure size of area of 3m x 2m x 1m high for a pair of average sized rabbits, regardless if they live indoors or outside.
Sharing your home with rabbits can be a wonderful experience but it’s not something to be taken lightly. See what’s involved and then consider carefully!
Rabbits can be perfectly happy living in the garden just so long as their physical and behavioural needs are catered for. Their accommodation must allow them to do many things and feel safe from predators.
Get rid of the small hutch
Our pets should not be battery animals. Quite simply keeping a rabbit alone in a hutch without the opportunity to exercise, display normal behaviour or without companionship is not acceptable.
