    Default Donate a day to a rescue in 2011

    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.

    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. Sugar and her 7 babies were part of that huge rescue that Alice did a couple of years ago.


    Bunnies: Sugar & Roo, Poppy & Pansy, Nutmeg Saffron & Pepper, Baby Rachel
    Chinchillas: Milly & Molly, Gemima & Lucy, Clover & Lola
    Cats: Tigger, Humbug & Rascal

    Goodnight Cinnamon, Catkin, Daisy & Minnie sleep tight my little girls xx
    Sweet dreams Herbie, Wally, big Bentley and my special little Scooby.....Forever in my heart xx
    Sleep tight baby Cookie...your time with us was too short, but you will stay in our hearts forever xx

    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.

    Just bumping this up as I am sure post Christmas rescues will be needing more help than ever with the extra bunnies coming into rescue.
