If you love bunnies, please consider caring for a rabbit (or two) in your home on a temporary basis.
RASKC is seeking volunteers to provide foster care while the bunnies are either adopted or a space opens up for them to be transported to a partner store. If, however, the situation is not working out, the animal(s) it is fine to return the animal to the shelter.
While children are invited to help care for the rabbit(s), an adult in the household must be the official foster volunteer and complete the paperwork. The adult must attend foster training, and children are welcome too.
Training is provided via RASKC website.
1. Engage in the online training on RASKC's website. Go to www.kingcounty.gov/RASKCVolunteer, then scroll down to the Get Involved section and click on the plus sign (+). Watch the foster modules and complete the quizes.
2. One adult in your household completes an initial online applicationhttp://tinyurl.com/InitialApplic-2017
3. The adult who completes and submits the online application also completes the liability-release form at https://tinyurl.com/LiaRelease-RASKC. Signing the top of p.2 is especially important. Then email as an attachment to RASKC.Volunteers@kingcounty.gov
Share your love and have fun as a foster parent to a furry sweetie that needs your kind care.
Thanks for considering this possibility. We look forward to hearing from you...

To provide King County with sustainable, cost-effective animal services, which protect people and animals, while providing compassionate animal care. Our organization is built on the cornerstone values of compassion and service. We demonstrate this commitment in the countless hours spent by staff and our RASKC volunteers to save animals' lives at the shelter and in the field. By collaborating with community partners, we are able to expand our programs and resources to provide even greater value to our residents.
