When purchasing your rabbit, it is important to consider the amount of space they require carefully. The RSPCA advises that rabbits need the below as a minimum space requirement for two averaged sized rabbits. Of course, if you can provide more space, that is even better for your rabbit’s welfare.

Top tips:

  • It is important to note that the space must be across a single level so raised hutches within the space will not count towards the minimum space requirement
  • If you can provide free-range space that is even better, but please ensure roaming is supervised
  • Minimum height requirement is 1m
  • Most importantly, the bigger the space, the more room they will have to exercise and keep in shape!
