Rabbit space requirements

When purchasing your pet rabbit, it is important to carefully consider the amount of space they require. The RSPCA advises the below as a minimum space requirement for two average-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 space must be across a single level, therefore 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.
  • The minimum height requirement is 1m
  • The main thing to remember is, the bigger the space, the more room they will have to exercise and keep in shape!
