RSPCA are currently looking to find a ‘forever home’ for two rabbits who have spent more than a year in care.

Tofu and Falafel came into the RSPCA’s care in early 2020, but have struggled to find adopters with centres closed due to lockdown restrictions.

The charity is able to rehome via a COVID-secure remote and delivery process, and have issued an urgent plea to suitable adopters in North Wales.

Tofu has a respiratory issue, meaning she needs to be nebulised twice a day, something which the centre acknowledges is a “big commitment” for a new owner to make.

Both would need to be ‘indoor rabbits’ due to Tofu’s medical problems. 

Rachel Gibbs, Deputy Manager of the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, said: “These rabbits have sadly spent more than a year with us and the search for their forever home continues.

“Both Tofu and Falafel would make amazing companions. They’re such friendly and affectionate rabbits, and we know the perfect owners for them are out there. 

“Sadly, Tofu has respiratory problems, which means she has to be nebulised twice a day which we know is a big commitment for a new owner to sign up to. They would also need to live indoors. Staff at Bryn-Y-Maen would be happy to discuss this with any potential adopter. 

“However, we know these rabbits would make hugely rewarding pets and would suit most homes and experience levels; and could live with children in the right environment too.”

The RSPCA urges people to do research prior to adopting an animal, information being available on the charity’s website to help prospective owners make informed decisions. 

Anyone interested in adopting the pair can contact the animal centre via 0300 123 0745 or via email at [email protected].

Other animals up for adoption can be found on the Find a Pet section of the website.
