So who are we? We are hobbyist show rabbit breeder. Dee has been a member of the British Rabbit Council for over 30 years and a member of the Rabbit Welfare Association for over 9 years. We keep and breed four types of rabbits these are: Mini Lops, Mini Lion Lops, Lionheads, Netherland Dwarfs.
We have only pure bred rabbits and we have aimed to produce rabbits that are of good size and a good example of the breed in accordance with the breed show
Our rabbit’s litters have been carefully planned and thought through with regard to producing robust, healthy rabbits of good temperament. We breed purely for ourselves and show purposes, with the intention of keeping some of the young rabbits for myself for showing and or new breeding stock. All of my rabbits are kept and cared for to the highest standard. Any funds they generate are used for the up-keep and welfare of my rabbits. Anyone breeding and keeping rabbits correctly will make a loss on the sale of these rabbits. Our rabbits are not breed for profit making. However there will always be surplus rabbits that do not come up to show standard that we don't keep. These are offered to people wanting a rabbit, or some times to other show breeders looking to introduce a new blood line, where agreed. We regularly handle our young rabbits; this makes them confident about being handled. All our rabbits leave us hand tame.
We will take the time to make sure you understand what is involved with keeping and caring for rabbits. we will show you how to approach and handle your chosen rabbit.
We will ask about the type of accommodation you have available for your new rabbit/s.
If you are homing a bunny from us, please also support us by buying your cage or your accessories from Dee, (this is what funds our rabbits throughout the year).
Dee offer's a 10% discount on the Malling Deluxe
hutch range, when purchased and collected with our bunnies, plus a 10% discounts on indoor housing packages, feed & bedding packs plus more.
We will advise you on the correct housing and the rabbit/s needs. If you decide to go elsewhere or you already have a cage please check with us beforehand that it is suitable for the breed of rabbit that you are wishing to home. For those that already have a hutch or have bought one elsewhere-there may be a £20 service charge* added to each rabbit to cover our costs, overheads and the time spent with you on pick up. Sorry about this but we are struggling to maintain the level of service we are currently offering otherwise.
If we feel that what you have is unsuitable, we reserve the right to refuse the homing of the rabbit/s until correct housing is available. We will not home any
rabbit/s to live in unsuitable housing.

There are three ways in which you can pay a deposit on your chosen bunny:
We are happy to offer advice.
A rabbit requires a commitment of care for it during its life. This could be 5-10 years or longer. The commitment required in caring for your rabbit includes not only routine feeding, care and time spent with the rabbit but also the provision of veterinary treatment if the rabbit becomes ill. There may be times when prompt veterinary treatment is needed and once a rabbit is ill it can deteriorate quickly.
We offer a neutering and re-bonding service for rabbits leaving here. If you have a single bunny already or one that has just lost its partner and are looking for a companion, we can advise you on which of our available bunnies would be best suited, we can arrange their neuter but can not bonded them for you, however we are happy to guide you in the bonding of the rabbits.
Your pet is guaranteed for 72 hours providing the guide lines that you are given are followed and that the rabbit has not been dropped or injured in any way or put under any stress. If you should experience any problems with your new pet, you must consult us first and we will help if we can. If you choose to seek veterinarian consultation without first consulting us, you will be liable for any fees incurred. We regret that, as non-profit-making hobbyists show breeder, we cannot give refunds or reimburse any vet bills.
After the 72 hours we cannot be held responsible for your pet in anyway.
Animal Welfare Act 2006
The Animal Welfare Act - and what this means for pet rabbits...
The new Animal Welfare Act is the most innovative piece of animal legislation for almost 100 years. In real terms it means that the law now has the teeth to intervene before cruelty has been inflicted upon an animal, by placing a 'duty of care' on the owner / guardian of bunnies.
When does the new law come into effect? From 6 April 2007 in England, and in Wales from 27 March, animal welfare law has been improved. It is still against the law to be cruel to any animal. But now you must also ensure that all the welfare needs of your animals are met.
The Five Freedoms
The Five Freedoms are set out in the Animal Welfare Act of 2006 and apply to all animals including rabbits. They are as follows:-
1. Freedom from hunger and thirst - by providing fresh water and the right type and amount of food to keep them fit
2. Freedom from discomfort - by making sure that animals have the right kind of environment including shelter and somewhere comfortable to rest
3. Freedom from pain, injury and disease - by preventing them from getting ill or injured and by making sure animals are diagnosed and treated rapidly if they do
4. Freedom to behave normally - by making sure animals have enough space, proper facilities and the company of other animals of their own kind
5. Freedom from fear and stress - by making sure their condition and treatment avoid mental suffering
