The Ongoing Need for Rabbit Foster Homes

Our local shelters and rescue organizations are frequently overwhelmed with domestic rabbits in need of homes. Often we are the last resort for a rabbit in peril.

Sadly, many pet rabbits die in shelters or after being dumped because no one is available to foster them – that is, to care for them temporarily until they can find loving, forever homes. It is heartbreaking for us to turn a rabbit away because so few people consider fostering.

Are you that kind of special person who can share your love and caring for a rabbit that needs an immediate safe haven while it awaits a permanent home? We hope you are thinking, “Yes, I am!”
