    We have a baby rabbit with a jaw disorder and he needs hand feeding and regular tooth clipping. He's absolutely gorgeous - white and very fluffy but will be put down at the end of the month if a home isn't found.
    He really is very sweet but we can't take care of him because of the level of care he needs.
    I live in East Sussex.
    Please pass this on to anyone who you think could take care of a rabbit like this and PM me if you're interested.

    Looks like someone hit him in the face with a shovel.

    Awww, he is so cute! I wish I lived in East Sussex, I want him! Hope he finds a home!

    Edit - now I'm over the 'awwww!' Have you tried advertising around your area? In pet shops, even places like the local paper or supermarket?

    I want him

    He's too far away, though, and I can't have pets in my apartment either (otherwise, I'd be driving there tomorrow evening).

    Online, pet shops- in as many places as possible. It's kinda hard to imagine the kind of person who would keep him because he really needs proper, dedicated care.

    He's really, really cute. Man, I've got such a soft spot for rabbits, but that gives the heartstrings an extra pull*. Sure you won't have trouble finding a home for him.

    How often do you have to clip his teeth and is it daily hand-feeding aye? Sorry, I'm not in the area, just curious. Had to clip one of my rabbit's teeth because he had an overbite, was maybe as much as fortnightly.

    *Maybe we should have an anon function in here, this can't be good for my street cred :ninja:

    I wish I lived in Eat Sussex, rabbits like that have a tendency to have jaw and/or teeth problems :rolleyes: and that little one will need lots of care...but it'd be so worth it, my bunny's old and is now pretty high maintenance, but so lovely...try everywhere as others have suggested, ask if you can put a notice up in the local vets as well...

    I genuinely hope that you find a home for this rabbit with someone nearer to you within the next month. However, if you're genuinely unable to, and the only other option is for him to be put down, please get in touch with me and I'll take him in.
    As I say, I'm saying this purely as a last resort as East Sussex is a long way for me to travel and I'd need to negotiate a suitable place to keep him, but better that than him being put down.

    made me laugh

    Thing is, we are having real trouble finding him a home.
    His teeth need clipping about once every 10 days. He needs hand feeding twice a day (I think~ my sister and mum feed the rabbits) and checking up on throughout the day as he tries to eat with his brothers and mamma but gets the tiny pellets stuck in his mouth... kinda cute but pretty sad

    made me tear up
    That is very, very sweet of you

    I promise that we'll try our hardest and if we have no other option left then I'll get in contact with you.

    Again, that's really sweet of you

    Honestly, it'd probably be better for it to be put down.

    Awww, man that is so sad. That's a pretty high standard of care, so yeah I can see why you're encountering difficulties. Probably only suitable for those who don't work/work from home if you're having to check up on him often.

    And again, awww
