FOSTERING RABBITS

Save a Furry Friend

FOSTER CARE

One of the biggest problems we are facing is the need of foster homes for some of our bunnies! Fostering is a great way for you to get involved and save a rabbit's life! Fostering is a wonderful way for people who can not commit to owning a a rabbit for years to be able to enjoy the company of one. Fostering also allows a person new to rabbit care to decide if rabbits are really the right pet for them long-term. Also, fostering a rabbit allows you to experience them outside of a shelter enviroment and get to know their real personality, and in the process of finding the perfect bun for you, you will get to save others!

 

HOW FOSTERING WORKS

Fostering is relatively simple as well as important! The goal is to provide a bunny with a safe, loving environment until they can be adopted. The first thing you have to do is fill out a Foster Application.

We ask that you care for your foster bunny like you would your own rabbit, which means giving them a comfortable place to live, showering them with love and affection and keeping them healthy and properly cared for. Commitment times for fostering range from 4 weeks to indefinitely. Bunnies who have been given the green light will be placed on our sites as available for adoption so we will be working to find them their forever home even while they are under foster care.

Though fostered bunnies don’t live with us, they are still technically cared for by Alabama Rabbit Rescue, which means we can help provide for their needs so that fostering is not a large financial burden to you. You will get an exercise pen, food and water bowls, and a litter box. You are asked to provide daily greens, and we can assist with pellet food, litter and hay if not in your budget.

 

FOSTER HOME REQUIREMENTS

Having access to transportation is a must so that the bunny could be taken to the vet when medically necessary or back to the shelter when needed. We also ask that your foster bunny be given space and time for exercise daily. And maybe most important of all, we ask you shower your foster bunny with love and affection, as we believe each of these rescued bunnies deserve to be made to feel special!
