We are always looking to add feeders/waterers everyday. We currently have at least 1 person everyday but we could use some additional support as pellets, greens and carrots are expensive and all of our volunteers help support our cause by buying most of their own supplies (we do help out when we get donations).
- People who wish to volunteer to feed and water the bunnies at Floyd Lamb Park (We are no longer asking for volunteers at the Charleston mental health facility). FRESH WATER is the first urgent item the bunnies need. We have waterers set up on BOTH properties that we help to coordinate at. For the most part, our volunteers bring their own bunny food (click her for a list of bunny safe foods) but will educate you in what to feed. ALFALFA RABBIT PELLETS are critical for these guys and can be bought for $10 or less for a 25 pound bag at WalMart or in feed stores. When Stacey or I feed, you can use a 50# bag of pellets ($16 for 50 lbs. at IFA Country Store in Las Vegas). In some cases, we can provide alfalfa hay or pellets but if you cannot afford to pay for food, fresh water like stated above is critical for these bunnies, especially in the hot summer months so anyone can help if they want to. Absolutely NO chocolate (poisonous!), cookies, crackers, breakfast cereals, bread, pasta, yogurt drops or other “human treats.” There is research to suggest these items may contribute to fatal cases of enterotoxemia, a toxic overgrowth of “bad” bacteria in the intestinal tract.
We can help you with bunny equipment and sometimes pellets but things like fresh vegetables, treats, etc., would be your responsibility. We will be responsible for any medical that is required however.
We are at Petsmart every Saturday from 11 AM – 3 PM (Setup is at 10:30 AM & Tear Down is at 3 PM). We need people to set up, tear down, greet people, help people fill out applications and educate them about our bunny dumpsite problems. We also are doing some presentations for schools, etc. and hope to do more.
Sometimes we just need a bunny and/or equipment delivered, sometimes it’s to pick up donations from the IFA Country Store and sometimes it’s transport bunnies into California, Utah, Arizona, etc.
Thank you for your interest in helping us help them.
