Crate and pen cleaners play an important role in the lives of our sheltered bunnies by providing fresh and healthy habitats for bunnies to live in while awaiting adoption.
Specific tasks include:
Removing used towels, litter boxes, and dishes from rabbit homes
Cleaning and washing items above
Placing clean and fresh towels, litter boxes and dishes in rabbit homes
Providing hay, fresh water, and toys and treats in each crate or pen cleaned
Transporting rabbit to outdoor pen for exercise while his or her home is being cleaned
In return, each volunteer is rewarded with the knowledge that they have had a direct impact on the quality of life of sheltered bunnies, and perhaps even get a bunny kiss or grateful bunny head-bump!
Orientation, training, and ample time to pet and connect with the bunnies provided. : )
COHRS is committed to everyone's safety during the pandemic. As such, all volunteers working in the Bunny Barn are required to wear face masks, adhere to social distancing requirements, and avoid coming to the shelter when they are not feeling well. Full COVID-19 policies available upon request.
About Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue (formerly Colorado House Rabbit Society)
12601 Lowell Blvd, Broomfield, CO 80020, US
Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), rescue and educational organization. We rescue, rehabilitate, and find loving forever homes for abandoned house rabbits. We also support local rabbit parents by providing education on these often misunderstood animals and their proper care, and offering expert support for any physical or behavioral challenges that may come up. We even have our own one-stop bunny shop, the Bunny Burrow, located at our shelter and open to the public every Saturday.
Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue (formerly Colorado House Rabbit Society) is licensed by the House-Rabbit Society International Headquarters. We are a 100% volunteer-drive organization, made up of a diverse group of over 200 bunny lovers.
Our shelter is home to around 80 rabbits at any given time, each of which has been rescued from dire circumstances. Once they arrive at our shelter, every bunny is given a thorough medical examination, and provided with whatever expert care is required to help them recover from physical and emotional wounds. Once they are neutered or spayed, restored to health, and litterbox trained, we begin the search for the perfect loving forever home for each bunny (due to their strong need for social connection, bunnies are only adopted out as pairs, or as singles to be paired with a bunny already in the home).
We believe that every-bunny deserves a second chance, and are therefore a no-kill shelter. Each bunny receives compassionate and loving care for as long as it take for their new human to find them. Our concern for the bunnies also extends beyond the adoption - we provide education on proper rabbit care for all adopters, 24/7 expert advice on bunny health and behavior for rabbit parents, and educational programs for local community groups.
We are a diverse community with one thing in common - we are all committed to helping rabbits and the people who love them. We welcome anyone who is interested in joining our community in this important work!
We'll work with your schedule.
