Fostering a rabbit(s) is a hands-on, beneficial and touching way to help save more rabbit lives. There are always more rabbits needing rescue than safe places for them to go.
FOSTERING A RABBIT REQUIRES A SINCERE COMMITMENT TO HELPING RABBITS IN NEED AS WELL AS OUR ORGANIZATION’S EFFORTS TO SAVE THEM. It is not a chance to “borrow” or shop for a rabbit.
Fostering a rabbit or pair of rabbits, may be ideal for you:
- If you want to help, but are unable to adopt permanently
- If you are unsure if a rabbit is the right long-term companion animal for your situation
- If you want to help a rabbit heal from trauma, abuse or neglect and have an open heart and love to share
While most of the rabbits we take in are happy and healthy, we frequently rescue rabbits who require healing and the personal touch provided by the intimacy of a foster home. To ensure both you and the rabbit get the best experience possible, we match people to their foster rabbit (s).
Can you help a special rabbit learn to love and trust again by fostering for 2- 6 months?
Additionally, as a result of severe overcrowding at local animal shelters, short term foster homes for 1-2 month give these rabbits a second chance until they can be adopted or a space becomes available at our foster center.
Training is provided. Fosters typically donate supplies to help the rabbits, since we are completely volunteer run and run on donations. However, assistance is available.
Thank you in advance for your caring and compassion! You can make an immediate difference in the life of a lonely animal.
