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? Join us!

Volunteer with Us!

Our volunteers make our rescue and humane education programs possible! If you love bunnies, agree with our mission to educate people about having house rabbits as companions, and want to make a difference for animals in our community, come join our team!

Bunny Taxi Driver
(age 18 and up, requires a valid drivers license)
How far will you go to help a rabbit? Across town? Across the state? Either way, the bunnies have a job for you! Chauffeur rabbits from vet visits, foster homes, or shelters and other rescues. Transport may be local to the Triangle area, or may involve crossing county lines to meet other drivers coming from outside of the Triangle area. Weekday and weekend drivers needed.
Time commitment: Varies depending on transport. Surgery transports from a Raleigh or Cary veterinarian are usually Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Longer distance transports are usually weekends.

Community Outreach Events
(age 18 and up, parent/youth teams for youth ages 8-17)
Share your love and knowledge of rabbits with our local community by helping with outreach, fundraising, and adoption events. Outreach activities may include education tables, rescue events, pet expos, and classes. We also regularly host social events for bunny families to get together exchange ideas. Events may be online or in-person.
Time commitment: Varies, generally 1-3 hour shifts.

Foster Family (age 21 and up)
Share your home with a rabbit or rabbits in need. Fosters provide food, hay, water, toys and lots of love. Limited cages and supplies available, depending on donations.
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.
Time commitment: Varies depending on opportunity. Vacation (1-2 weeks or less), short term (2-8 weeks) and long term (8+ weeks) vacation foster homes are needed. Learn more.

Additional Volunteer Opportunities

Bunnies in local 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 your local rescue and shelter websites and find someone near you.

To learn about local opportunities helping to care for shelter rabbits, visit the SPCA of Wake County, Wake County Animal Center, and APS of Durham.
