About Our Program

About the Rabbit Advocates Foster Program

Rabbit Advocates does not operate our own shelter; instead, we have a network of private foster homes. The more qualified foster homes we have available to help, the more rabbits we can rescue, rehabilitate if necessary, and re-home to loving “furever” homes.

After being rescued, some rabbits simply need a calming period to learn to trust humans again. Other times, they require medical care until they are well enough to adopt out. Our foster parents spend time socializing and caring for rabbits so that they can once again enjoy the companionship of humans and become adoptable.

How the Rabbit Advocates Foster Program works:

  • You submit a foster application.  You must be at least 18 years old.
  • An official Foster Trainer will meet with you at your home. Your trainer will be available to guide you through the foster and adoption process.  If you need extra assistance, we may assign you a Foster Mentor, who will personally assist you every step of the way.
  • When your foster rabbit is spayed or neutered and healthy enough, we will list them as “adoptable” on our website.
  • You will have access to adoption applications as they come in.  Our adoption coordinators may contact you to suggest applicants that seem to be a good fit for your foster rabbits.
  • You will meet with potential adopters, and choose the right indoor home for your foster rabbit.
  • The adopters will sign our RA adoption contract, and you will collect and forward our adoption fee.

We hope you will study the material on this page, and then decide to become a foster home so that you can help us adopt rabbits to indoor homes where they will be loved and treasured as members of the adoptive family for their entire lives.
