A BRACE of bunnies are still looking for a home after becoming the longest remaining small residents at a rescue shelter.

Cookie and Marshall have been at Danaher Animal Shelter, in Wethersfield, for more than six months and are still waiting to hear the good news that a home has been found for them.

The cuddly duo have been there longer than all the small creatures, which include rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, mice, gerbils and birds.

Aged five years and six and a half years, they remain in need of a family to take them in.

They were originally rescued by the home last year, due to frequent threats from foxes.

The pair are in need of a room in a house or a shed rather than a regular rabbit hutch or cage.

This is because Cookie can be temperamental or moody at times, sometimes taking her anger or frustration out on Marshall, so the pair need more space.

But the two are bonded together for the majority of the time and are usually very content with each other, regularly laying together and grooming one another.

A Danaher spokesman said: “The bunnies have been in with us since early July through no fault of their own.

“They have been overlooked and we don’t understand why because they are a gorgeous pair of bunnies.

“If you feel you can offer this beautiful pair their forever home, please submit an interest form for them.”
