Volunteering to Help Rabbits
It's not always easy to accept your generous offers to help. This is because all work is done in private foster homes instead of a central institution. The best way to help us is to take some of our bunnies and foster them. If you are interested in volunteering, visit our volunteer page to find out more about fostering, helping a fosterer, helping a shelter, or any of the other ways you can help out.

If you can't foster, then maybe you can help our fosterers, or your local shelter. Cage-cleaning is always appreciated (though scheduling can be a problem). Errand-running is greatly needed by most fosterers:
  1. Drop off a sack of chow, bale of hay, stack of newspapers or bag of organic kitty litter at a foster home.
  2. Shop for cleaning supplies (trashcan liners, white vinegar).
  3. Pick up medications from or transport rabbits to veterinarian clinic.
  4. Another important task is to volunteer at your local animal shelter. You can help socialize rabbits and contribute educational materials.
Check out our list of local contacts to find the fosterer nearest you.

If your rabbit actually likes to be picked up and passed around and enjoys traveling, you might consider sharing this rare friend by volunteering with an animal-assisted therapy program. You may want to contact The Delta Society's Pet Partners Program to find out more about animal-assisted therapy.
