Job description

Every bunny needs some bunny sometimes! Can you help foster our rabbits whilst we are looking for their forever home?

The Cheshire Altrincham Branch covers a large area of Cheshire and we work closely with the Inspectors to provide direct animal welfare services in our area. The main activity of our branch is to rehome cats, dogs and other animals. We rely on fosterers to look after and care for our animals until we can find them their forever homes.

You will be joining our lovely team of friendly rabbit fosterers and receive support from your branch manager and other fosterers in the team.

Often when we think about animal fostering, cats and dogs spring to mind, but have you ever thought about fostering rabbits? The RSPCA received more than 5,000 reports last year about rabbits relating to neglect or abandonment and rescued an average of 340 small furries a month! To help us with the rehoming of these rabbits, we are actively looking to add to our fantastic team of volunteer fosterers.

As a rabbit fosterer, you would play an essential role in providing the rabbits in our care with a temporary home whilst they are being rehomed. Like us, even small furries have specific needs and requirements, but rest assured, once we have guided you through the fostering process the animal centre will ensure that you have all the necessary guidance, equipment, food, and veterinary care.

When our rabbits are in your foster care, you will:

- Provide them with care, safe suitable housing, and space for playtime, as outlined in our policies and guidelines.

- Ensure that they are groomed if appropriate, and fed and watered (they eat a bundle of hay as big as  they are every day!)

- Provide them with suitable and clean bedding to keep them cosy.

- Give them lots of attention and plenty of cuddles as rabbits are very sociable animals.

- The RSPCA is happy to reimburse you for any pre-agreed expenses incurred through volunteering  for us.

What we are looking for in a volunteer Rabbit Fosterer

- Volunteers aged 18 or over who have had plenty of experience of caring for animals.

- Fostering experience is beneficial but not essential as training is provided.

- For their wellbeing, our rabbits may need to be fostered in pairs, so please bear this in mind.

- Any existing pets or animals need to have been spayed/neutered (some medical reasons may mean they can’t be so, please let us know if this is the case).

What we can offer you as a volunteer Rabbit Fosterer

- You will be making a massive difference to the welfare of the rabbits in your care.

- Join a community which will enable you to meet new people and make new friends.

- Learning new skills through our comprehensive induction and fostering training programme.

Enhance your CV by adding your volunteering experience and newly acquired skills.

Location Altrincham,  Sale,  Knutsford,  Northwich,  Hale,  Timperley
