Getting Involved

Want to get involved with bunnies in our community? Want to talk to other rabbit people, both in your neighborhood and across the country? Want to be an advocate for rabbits?

Volunteer

Bunnies in animal shelters and rescue programs need you! Do you have time to give them some playtime, brush them, or talk to them? Maybe you would like to donate some rabbit-safe toys for them to play with? How about stopping by with some fresh veggies (every bunny loves that!)? If any of these things sound like fun, visit the rescue and shelter websites on our Adoption page to find someone near you, or email us at info@trianglerabbits.org.

Bunny Butler with Triangle Rabbits
We have a Bunny Butler volunteer program to help with foster rabbits at AniMall Pet Adoption and outreach Center in Cary, NC. After a short training, volunteers sign up online to supervise exercise time, do light cleaning, and bring fresh salad.

Volunteer requirements for Bunny Butlers:
Volunteers must be able to come to AniMall Pet Adoption and Outreach Center in Cary, NC.
Volunteers must complete a short training about bunnies (no prior bunny experience necessary).
Volunteers must be age 18 or older to volunteer on their own.
We welcome adult/youth teams for youth ages 8-17. Youth ages 16-17 may volunteer on their own with a parent’s permission.

Volunteer at Community Events
We do community education programs and adoption events, coordinate foster programs, and help with bunny transport. We are actively seeking people to join our team.

Bunny Buddy with the SPCA of Wake County
Bunny Buddy volunteers help with the rabbits and other small animals at the SPCA Adoption Center (200 Petfinder Lane, Raleigh). A Bunny Buddy shift includes supervising exercise time, bringing fresh salad, and light cleaning. Visit the SPCA website to sign up!

Bunny Taxi Driver
Bunny taxi volunteers help with bunny transportation needs. This may include picking up rabbits from foster homes or the SPCA and dropping them off for spay/neuter surgery, picking them up after surgery and taking them to the SPCA, or helping with transport from one rescue to another. Email us to sign up.

If you are interested in helping out with any of these programs, drop us a note at info@trianglerabbits.org.

Foster

How fostering helps:
  • It saves lives by making space in the shelter.
  • It helps rabbits become used to a home environment, with new sights, smells, and sounds.
  • It helps with socialization, so a rabbit is more adoptable.
  • It gives rabbits a place to stay until they can be spayed/neutered, and a safe, comfortable place to recover from surgery.
  • It helps shelters and rescues learn about a rabbit’s personality so they can match them with the right family.
We are always looking for short-term/vacation (1-2 weeks) and long-term foster homes (2-8 weeks). If you are interested in helping out, learn more or fill out our Foster Home Interest Form.
