Want to help the ones in need?
You can help small animals in many ways. Our most popular way to volunteer is to become a Foster Family, which allows animals in need of care to live in your home until they are adopted.
For more information on fostering please check out the Fostering info below. If you are unable to bring an animal into your home, there are other ways to help the little guys. For instance, you can come out to socialize our shelter bunnies. There’s no better way than hands-on bunny cuddling time! Not only is it fun and rewarding, but the bunnies really appreciate it.
Here is a quick list of a few of the areas we have for volunteering.
- Animal care (grooming, socialization)
- Adoption counselor
- Cleaning & feeding (lots of help needed at our rabbit shelter in Aldergrove)
- Adoption follow up
- Volunteer recruitment
- Special events/displays
- Marketing & promotion
- Driving (animals)
- Picking up/delivering supplies
- Database management
- Humane education
- Special programs (youth/seniors)
- Liaison for vet offices & pet stores
These are just a few ways you can get involved and help homeless and neglected animals. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We are a virtual shelter, meaning that we primarily rely on a network of foster homes with people who kindly open their hearts and doors to an animal in need. Unfortunately we still often have to turn down animals in need because we just don’t have any room left with any of our foster homes. So we are always in desperate need of new foster homes.
If you’re interested in fostering an animal, please fill out the foster application form found here. We will get back to you with details.
We provide cages and other supplies like litter boxes, bowls etc. and will pay for any medical treatment needed. The foster home provides the foster animal with the daily necessities such as food and bedding and of course lots of TLC. Foster homes also get first dibs to adopt the animal as we understand how fast you can get attached to them!
Don’t worry if you’ve never had a small animal before, we’d be happy to show you how to take care of them and we’re always here to answer your questions.
We generally ask that people foster the animals until they get adopted which can be anywhere from a few days up to several months….or sometimes even longer. We understand that sometimes circumstances change and people are no longer able to foster so we will find a new foster home as soon as possible.
