As an Adoption Counselor for the House Rabbit Society, you will help match families with the right rabbit, educate on rabbit care, assist with the adoption paperwork, and assist with rabbit-to-rabbit introductions. Finding forever homes for our resident rabbits is one of our core functions as a nonprofit organization! The more rabbits we are able to place in loving homes, the more we are able to save from euthanasia at shelters.
This position requires experience handling and caring for rabbits, as well as an ability to speak with the public and represent our organization. Ideally, you will have experience with us as a Bunny Whisperer, but this is not a requirement. You can help us with adoptions at our facility in Richmond, CA as well as for offsite adoption events. Our volunteer hours are every day from 12pm to 5pm (we're closed Mondays). Offsite events may occur outside of these hours. We especially need help on Saturdays!
All volunteers are expected to help where needed, which may include helping keep the rabbit center clean, bagging hay, grooming, office work, etc. We do ask for a four month commitment from our volunteers, as well as a weekly commitment. Volunteers must be 16 or older.
To become a volunteer, you must first fill out our online application, located on our website here: http://rabbitcenter.org/volunteering/
Once we receive your application we will contact you with tour and training dates and you can get started!
