Animal lovers- this is the right spot for YOU!
Want to help rescued bunnies while they wait in foster care? Rabbit haven is looking for a few great volunteers who want to help care for these special Haven bunnies.
Help: Our large foster sites are in need of volunteers.
Typically Haven site
volunteers are needed to help clean bunny cages and habitats, provide
food and water to all rabbits , to change the bedding in rooms, and to
place rabbit in play zones for play time.
Volunteers shuttle rabbits, pick up supplies, run other errands as needed. Everyone works cooperatively.
We also have position open for our Rabbit adoption team as Haven show volunteers!
This group of volunteers is central to our success in placing rabbits into loving, permanent, indoor homes. Show volunteers attend our adoption events every two weeks Sat at Pet Pals in Soquel 11-5 or For Other Living Things in Sunnyvale 11-4. Show counselors are trained to educate the public, help show the rabbit potential new humans they may want to live with. Counselors help new families complete their adoption paperwork and assist with questions regarding bunny care and set ups. It is fun.
Show volunteers may
also help set up Friday evenings (In Soquel) and may help close the
show Sat evening.
Adoption show counselors need to be somewhat outgoing and always positive with a high tolerance for the public. This can be challenging- each show event we see a variety of people. Some are nice while others can be difficult. There are crying children, sweet little ones, people with a variety of animals, all sorts of personalities and so many questions. Just an assortment of every kind of person imaginable. Basically, they are there to pet, find out info to adopt or just be with the rabbits. Our job is to educate ever person who attends our shows and to help the bunnies find a new human companion. Haven staff helps the public all about the wonders of house rabbits. They leave knowing more than when they arrived.
A smile and open communication goes a long way to beginning the education process about house rabbits. Keeping positive with the public and potential adopters is a great Public relations tool - Rabbit Haven is known to be the place to come to learn about rabbits. Both inexperienced and experienced people come to our shows. We assist everyone who comes to us.
Of course training is provided in all areas! We need you so much! Hey, those of you looking for a job, this looks good on your resume if you are short of work experience. I also will give employment references!
