Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We especially need help to keep the facility clean. This mainly involves keeping the cages in the photo clean so that our bunnies enjoy healthy lives. The cleaning consists of replacing used litter, newspaper, towels, sweeping and changing water. We normally need a person for 2 or 3 hours in the morning and afternoon. This is not a dirty smelly job because the cleaning is done every day so that there no chance for a buildup of dirt and odour. We also need people who can handle bunnies so they can be moved from their inside cages to outdoor exercise pens. Commonly volunteers who clean cages will also learn to help move bunnies to their outside exercise pens. Of course, we also need help in keeping the outside pens clean but this is not an everyday job. Although cleaning is where we especially need volunteer help there are other jobs within VRRA where help would be appreciated. If you have expertise in fundraising or other ways you might help you can specify them in the following application form.
Potential volunteers should be aware that our shelter is located on the west side of the City of Vancouver and near 2 major bus routes.
