Do you enjoy playing and caring for rabbits of all shapes and sizes? Do you want to contribute to the well-being and adoption prospects of homeless rabbits looking for forever homes? Join our foster rabbit team!

Rabbits are the third largest population of companion animals in the United States. They are extremely intelligent, sensitive and social. It is a rewarding experience to interact and nurture them during these transitional times in their lives.

Foster care volunteers provide a home to homeless, abandoned or surrendered domestic rabbits who either have been at the shelter for too long or are experiencing stress and other health issues. We provide training and some supplies; all you need is a quiet room and willingness to help. A commitment of at least 3 months is requested, although shorter-term opportunities come up from time to time (i.e. rabbit babies).

Support:

Our knowleadgable community of critter volunteers support each other - we have monthly meetings, animal care trainings, our experienced rabbit care specialist provides rabbit foster parents with support via email.

Apply today at bit.ly/foster_application and learn about the joys of caring for shelter rabbits. You will have a chance to save and improve the lives of many bunnies!
