Animals Like Tofu Need Your Help—Adopt, Don’t Shop

Posted on by Nirali Shah

PETA regularly visits areas in Metro Manila where we help animals in need—from rescuing animals who are trapped or injured to offering free vaccinations and spay and neuter surgeries to cats and dogs whose families cannot afford these services.

PETA found this rabbit, whom we named Tofu, in a small barren cage with no food or water. The door of the cage was much too small for him to fit through easily, so it seemed that he had been put in the cage as a baby and never taken out. When his owner told PETA that he no longer wanted him, we decided to nurse him back to health and put him up for adoption. Watch to learn more about Tofu’s heartwarming story!

Tofu received veterinary care and quickly adjusted to his new clean, spacious, peaceful surroundings at the PETA office. After getting neutered, he was put up for adoption and quickly settled into his “forever home” with his new loving family.

If you are ready to make a lifetime commitment (rabbits can live for 10 years or more!) to an animal and can give one all the love and care that he or she deserves, please adopt from your local animal shelter. Never buy animals from breeders or pet stores. An animal who is purchased from a breeder or pet store will be replaced by another one, leaving one fewer home for a bunny already in an animal shelter awaiting adoption.
