"The charity now has 55 rabbits, all of which will be neutered, fully vaccinated and ID chipped prior to re-homing.

"Several pairs are ready for adoption and many more will be available in coming weeks."

Anyone who thinks they can offer a suitable home to any of the rabbits can visit the shelter and talk to staff for advice between midday and 3pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Home checks are always carried out prior to adoption.
