Friends of Unwanted Rabbits has been finding homes for rescued rabbits since 2004. We are dedicated to finding forever, loving, indoor homes for abandoned and neglected rabbits discarded at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter.
Rabbit Care Volunteers are needed to care for our rescued rabbits housed at the Petco in Folsom. Volunteers will get the rabbits out of their cages and put them in x-pens to play and exercise. They will clean the cages, litter boxes, refill food, hay and water. Rabbit Care Volunteers also sit with the rabbits and socialize with them by petting them, playing with them and grooming them. Volunteers generally clean one bank of 3 cages with 3 rabbits but opportunities are available to care for more than 3 rabbits if a volunteer chooses. Training is provided. Children under 18 can volunteer with a parent.
Foster Parents are needed to care for rabbits that are rescued from the shelter, in their home until we have space available at Petco or the rabbit is adopted to a new home. Fosters transport their foster rabbit too and from Vet appointments for spay/neuter and if the rabbit has a medical need. These costs are paid for by TEAM-FUR. Fosters will socialize their foster rabbit and bring them to adoption events held at Petco. Previous rabbit experience is preferred but not required. A minimum 6 month commitment is required to foster a rabbit.
Additional Volunteer Opportunties include Grant writing, transporting rabbits to and from Veterinary appointments, Assisting at Rabbit Adoption Events, Fundraising, Photography, and photocopying educational rabbit care handouts, Graphic Design, Artistic crafters and sewers to make bunny blankets and items for the rabbits for fundraising.
