Rabbit space requirements

Posted by Linnaeus Marketing in News | Article permalink on Feb 12 2021

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!
