Fresh, healthy vegetables are a key part of the diet of all of our sheltered rabbits!

Veggies Sorters play an important role in helping the bunnies by preparing veggie meals, and then distributing them to the rabbits or to a member of the rabbit feeding team. Prep work includes rinsing and chopping the vegetables, generally done as part of a two-person volunteer team.

We are currently in need of one more Veggie Sorter to help every Friday afternoon.

PLEASE NOTE: The health and well-being of all volunteers is a top priority at RMHRR! As such, our organization follows a strict set of protocols based on current CDC guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. For example, all volunteers are required to wear face masks and practice social distancing during their volunteer shifts in the Bunny Barn, and to stay home if they are not feeling well. Contact us for more information!

RMHRR welcomes volunteers as young as 8 years old! All volunteers under the age of 18 must have consent of a parent or guardian. Volunteers age 8-15 are required to volunteer with an adult at all times (family member or friend), volunteers age 16-17 are only allowed to volunteer when at least one other adult volunteer is present. Contact us for more information!

About Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue (formerly Colorado House Rabbit Society)

Location:

12601 Lowell Blvd, Broomfield, CO 80020, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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!
