This adorable rabbit has a health issue but just wants a forever home

Tofu has a respiratory issue, meaning she needs to be nebulised twice a day

Two rabbits who have spent more than a year in the RSPCA’s care continue to search for forever home happiness.

Dynamic duo Tofu and Falafel came into the RSPCA’s care in early 2020 – but have struggled to find adopters, with the centre closed for periods of time amid lockdown restrictions.

RSPCA Cymru is currently able to rehome via a Covid-secure remote and delivery process, and have issued an urgent plea to suitable adopters in North Wales to consider adding the pair to their family.

Sadly, Tofu has a respiratory issue, meaning she needs to be nebulised twice a day – 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.

Long-stay rabbit duo hope to hop to new home

However, the rabbits are sweet, affectionate and very friendly – and the RSPCA hope the launch of an urgent rehoming appeal will help the pair find the new home they deserve.

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 too. 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 their research when considering adopting an animal – and a wealth of information is on the charity’s website to help prospective owners make informed decisions.
