FOSTERING OUR RABBITS

One of the biggest problems we are facing is the need for foster homes for our bunnies! Fostering is a great way for you to get involved in saving a rabbit's life! It's wonderful for people who can't commit to owning a rabbit. Fostering also allows a person who is new to rabbits decide if rabbits are the right pet for them long-term. Fostering is relatively simple but so important!

HOW FOSTERING WORKS

 

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 as if it were your own, which means giving them a comfortable place to live, showering them with love and affection,  providing exercise time out of their enclosure, and keeping them healthy and happy. Commitment times for fostering range from 4 weeks to indefinitely. Bunnies available for adoption can be fostered while we are working to find them forever homes.

Foster rabbits are still technically cared for by Hunny-Bunns Rabbit Rescue. This 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 REQUIREMENTS

  1. Having your own transportation is a must so that the bunny could be taken to the vet when medically necessary or back to the shelter when needed.

  2. You must have room inside your home for an exercise pen, which will be the bunny's home base.

  3. Daily exercise and free roam time is expected, at least 4 hours either inside your home or outside, with supervision. 

  4. And we ask you to shower your foster bunny with love and affection. Each of these rescued bunnies deserve to feel special!
