The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Want to help, but unable to adopt permanently? Fostering a rabbit or pair of rabbits, may be ideal for you. While most rabbits we take in are happy and healthy, we occasionally rescue rabbits who require healing and the personal touch provided by the intimacy of a foster home. Sadly, many rabbits have been innocent victims of abuse and neglect and need gentle, patient guardians to help them heal and trust again. Can you help these bunnies learn to love and trust again by fostering for 3-6 months? Additionally, as a result of severe overcrowding at local shelters, we also need short term foster homes for 1-2 months to safely house rabbits until they can be adopted or a space becomes available at Petco. Training is provided. Fosters typically donate supplies to help the rabbits since we are completely volunteer run and operate on donations.
