The leaves and stems are toxic to most animals including rabbits however it is not unheard of where a plant will be knocked down and the tomatoes (red or green) scruffed up. (I have also had experience with the neighbor's dog doing this.)

Deer have eaten my tomatos, but a likely culprit could be the tomato hornworm. They are green and blend in with the vines so they are difficult to see. They are larger than a caterpillar and have a rhinoceros horn on their back ends. Hornworms can polish of an entire tomato plant. Planting Marigolds around your tomato plants will help keep them away.

Generally, no but other critters will. You can keep your plants shielded with wire fencing; certainly helps us out.
