Of course! Whether you want to try something new, your schedule has changed, or you just don’t like your current volunteer job, we will do our best to switch you to a new job that works better for you and your schedule.
Of course! There are plenty of volunteer jobs that require little to no lifting of items over 15 lbs. Just let our Volunteer Coordinator know of your physical limitations and we’ll be happy to work with you.
Yes! We can work with almost any schedule. Whether you come in once a month, only for events, etc. We will do our best to make it happen.
In short, we are a volunteer run shelter, so we are unable to accommodate walk-in viewings. We ask for everyone to fill out an online adoption application first, even if you’re just wanting to browse the shelter bunnies and are unsure if you’re actually ready to adopt. This allows our Adoption Coordinators to schedule appointments so they can assist you.
Please see our Adoption Procedures and FAQ’s for more information.
