A SPECIAL appeal has been launched to help find homes for six overlooked rabbits.

Apricot, Doris, Ember, Kiri, Mango and Peter are among 19 rabbits currently at RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre in Upper Colwyn Bay - but have sadly been overlooked by potential adopters.

Centre manager Vicky Williams said: “We have around 19 rabbits with us now who have been sadly waiting for their second chance of happiness for some time.

“Rabbits are often perceived as an ideal ‘starter pet’ for young children, they actually have very complex needs and are one of the most neglected pets in Britain.

“For anyone who has done their research and is certain they can provide the time, space, money and care it takes to look after a pair of rabbits then please consider adopting rescue rabbits instead.

“If you feel you could offer any of our furry friends the home they deserve, please get in touch with the centre or fill out an online application form.”

Staff at RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen are hoping Peter, a brown rabbit who is around three years old and Kiri, a female white rabbit who is two years old, will soon find a forever home.

The duo - who are confident characters - are looking for a home together - ideally with an older family.

They have been in RSPCA care for over a year - since April 2021.

Doris - who came from the same home as Peter and Kiri, is also looking for a forever home.

She is a bit shy but is friendly and is looking for a neutered male companion if possible.

Doris is looking for someone that is able to give her all the space and care that she needs.
