A key part of our mission is to to support house rabbits by providing free classes on rabbit care for rabbit parents. Our Tune-Up classes provide a thorough introduction to rabbit health and proper rabbit care through a mix of teaching and hands-on demonstrations. All classes are currently being held over Zoom.
The right candidate for this position must have experience with caring for house rabbits (preferably has rabbits living in their home), and be able to fully demonstrate "hands on" bunny care. We are also looking for someone who has experience instructing or training a small group of people - including using visual aids, and teaching either in person or through Zoom. Basic knowledge of the Zoom platform is also required.
Class curriculum is provided, although there is ample opportunity for sharing personal experience with bunny care.
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.
