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.
Colorado House Rabbit Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), rescue and educational organization. The Colorado House Rabbit Society has two purposes: 1) To rescue domestic rabbits from dire circumstances 2) To educate the public concerning domestic rabbits, their characteristics, and their care. Our rescue work includes rehabilitating mistreated rabbits, both physically and emotionally. All of our rabbits are spayed/neutered, socialized, and litter trained. We find them permanent homes as house-rabbits, guaranteeing to help solve any problems that may occur throughout the rabbits' lives.
The Colorado House Rabbit Society is licensed by the House-Rabbit Society International Headquarters. We are made up entirely of volunteers. There are no paid positions. Every penny of all donations goes to helping the rabbits. We rescue and rehabilitate homeless, abandoned domestic rabbits. Affectionate, litter-trained, spayed or neutered rabbits are then available for adoption. We also provide education about all aspects of having rabbits as companion animals in the home.
We'll work with your schedule.
