Wanted: Rabbit Rescue Volunteers
Organization: Rabbitats Rescue Society
Location: Vancouver, BC
Rabbitats is a rabbit rescue trying to help all the abandoned bunnies, especially in Richmond. We are building a sanctuary and need all the help we can get. We can have work parties almost every weekend, and need help on weekdays, including after work hours.
Immediate roles we need:
The shelter is open 7 days a week and after work hours. We’re well set up for company team building projects, school groups, etc.

Rabbitats is a volunteer-run organization that survives off the donations and time of wonderful people. Every cent we receive goes towards rescuing feral and abandoned rabbits: paying for veterinary care, finding good homes, and building sanctuaries. Large numbers of abandoned domestic rabbits can be safely, securely and happily housed in indoor or outdoor ‘rabbitats’ built in conjunction with animal shelters, pet rescues, institutions, ‘green’ businesses or on private land under the care of responsible citizens. Cities contend with abandoned pets and their feral offspring while rural areas deal with unscrupulous breeders who routinely release their unwanted stock. The non-native domestic rabbits soon become a problem for municipalities, businesses and neighbourhoods forced to deal with environmentally destructive natural behaviour like chewing and burrowing. It’s a tragedy for the loose bunnies as they will most likely be killed by predators, parasites, sport hunters or trappers hired for ‘pest control’. Rabbitats can help build affordable colony housing for sterilized rabbits and educate new rabbit guardians on low maintenance and sustainable care. We desperately need help to organize and construct our new sanctuary that will house over 100 rabbits.
