If you said yes to any of these questions then we’d be thrilled to meet you!!
The Georgia House Rabbit Society is the only organized group in the area rescuing these precious companions and it couldn’t be done without the help of volunteers! Volunteers run every aspect of this rescue including feeding the bunnies, cleaning the shelter, stocking supplies, overseeing our Hop Shop store, answering the phones and aiding in adoptions. We do it all! And we need your help!
So….are you interested in helping but think that maybe you don’t have the kind of skills that we need? Well we have a wide variety of tasks that we need help with! We also need volunteers for all days of the week and most hours of the day, not just public shelter hours. We can be quite flexible with anyone willing to offer their precious time to help us.
Below is a partial list of things that we do every day at our shelter to keep the bunnies healthy and happy. We need a lot of behinds the scenes help too with organizing, event planning and more!
So if you have the time to give, get in touch. Chances are, we can use your help.
AM AND PM FEEDINGS-we have a bunch of buns in the Rabbit House and they each need pellets, greens , hay and fresh water every day. Not to mention the occasional treats.
BI WEEKLY CLEANINGS-twice a week(Tuesdays and Fridays) we do an all out cleaning of the pens. This includes litter boxes, wiping down the walls, cleaning the floors,changing towels and toys etc. The more people we have on hand the faster it goes.
GROOMING-all bunnies need a certain amount of grooming including brushing and nail trims. It’s not rocket science. Just get that cute bunny and brush it. Nail trimming training is available to those willing to learn but not mandatory with those not comfortable.
STORE FRONT HELP- We have a store at the shelter where we sell all you’ll ever need for your bunns. We have customers coming in at all times of the day and they need help with purchases as well as other house related things.
MAKING HIDEY BOXES AND CUTTING CARPET-we make lovely boxes for the bunnies to hang out in, they have holes cut for coming and going and carpet on top for relaxing and the occasional digging fest. We also need carpet cut for the floors and shelves. We do require you to be old enough to comfortably handle a razor blade knife for this task.
LOVE- Bunnies need lots of love and attention. Unfortunately we sometimes find it hard to give each one the love that they deserve.
There are always other things here and there that need doing. If you don’t know how to do something we will always show you how and be there to answer your questions. I think you’ll find that once you start coming here you will fall in love with it as we all have. It’s a happy place for the bunnies who may have not been afforded that in the past. You can help us insure that this continues. Nothing better than making bunnies happy!!
We’re also always in need of Foster Homes for our bunnies. If you think you have the space and love to spare, please consider hosting a rabbit for a temporary stay!
