It's not really a dirty job...but it needs to be done

Our sheltered bunnies' crates and pens have to be cleaned every week. It isn't really a "dirty" job, because rabbits are pretty clean creatures--they use a litter box for their urine and their droppings are dry and odorless. But it is a bit on the labor intensive side. Vinegar does have to be used in the litter boxes, so you need to be able to tolerate the odor of vinegar for short periods of time.

We ask cleaners to make a six month commitment to come once a month during the weekend to which they are assigned to clean at least four crates or to work with a team one Sunday morning a month to clean all of the pens.

These commitments can be met if you want to come twice a month for three months, or six times in a row for six weeks, etc. Then you can choose any other open volunteer position you like.

Every penny of all donations goes to helping the rabbits. We rescue and rehabilitate homeless, abandoned domestic rabbits.
