With the number of rescues closing, it is vital that we support those that continue to rescue. As 2011 starts, it would be good if some of us could pledge a day of our time to help a rescue.

I know a lot members are already volunteering and this post is to those who havent, as yet, thought of doing that and would like to roll up their sleeves and muck in, and also meet other RU members.

Rescues currently needing volunteers:

Kirkby Rescue, Nottingham. Could you donate a day to Kirkby Rescue, Nottingham, to take some bunnies to their vet for neutering and collect? They are also looking for someone to walk their dogs.

Rabbit Residence nr Camb. previously had a volunteer day and a second was planned, which was cancelled because of bad weather. Another day is planned for March/April if anyone is free

Windwhistle Rescue, Glos. We are planning another volunteer day in March,
if anyone is free.

Barnsley Animal Rescue, Barnsley. Are looking for volunteers to help with fundraising (bagpacking at supermarkets when arranged).

If you can volunteer at any of these rescues, please post. If you have another rescue, that would like some help, donate your day there.

If you are a rescue and would like some help, please ask for it on this thread?

This is a great idea. :wave:

Even though it's a bit of a drive, I think I'd quite like to do a day at Alice's. It would be a good to experience another rescue other than Kirkby.

It's thanks to Alice that I have my little Sugar bunny. :love: Sugar and her 7 babies were part of that huge rescue that Alice did a couple of years ago. :)

I have wanted to do some volunteer work with bunnies for ages, no one ever seems to want my help!

But I am in Cambs so would love to volunteer at the rabbit residence. Do you think they would take on a regular volunteer (like once or twice a week) or would need a fosterer?
I guess I should ask.
Was going to board my buns there when I went on holiday in may but now my brother has decided to stay home so he will look after them.

I'm up for Windwhistle and when the weather gets better I will do another couple of Saturdays for the rescue I foster for.

Barnsley Animal Rescue, Barnsley, are seeking volunteers to help with fundraising. They are hoping to do bag packing at a supermarket in 2011, to raise much needed funds. Their vet bill is currently 2000. Could you help with donating a day to help with this, or something similar?

That's a coincidence. I offered my services today. I just hope what hours I can offer per week will be ok.

Is this for Kirkby? Well done.

Know anyone with a car, who could help with vet runs?

I would love to volunteer at Windwhistle as that's not too out of the way for me, if you'll take me of course ;)

Wilford Rabbit Refuge could use some help re-painting one of our aviaries when the weather improves...would anyone local to Nottm be willing to give up a bit of time to help out? Definitely won't be until spring :wave:

We could have a painting party if anyone else is up for it! :lol:

I mentioned if the usual lady couldn't do it I perhaps could. I work 5 days but I really wouldn't mind taking a day off.

I've got to call to confirm about Saturdays so I'll mention it again then.

Thats a pity and, if you change that and want some help, put a thread up. Im sure that you would get a lot of volunteers.
