The Foster Care Program is the backbone (bunnybone?) of The Rabbit Sanctuary.

When you foster a rabbit, you're freeing up a spot at the sanctuary for another bunny to be rescued.  Often the bunnies in our care haven't had the best start to life so until a permanent home can be found, this gives the orphan the time it needs to be ready for adoption.  It also helps the sanctuary learn more about the bunny so it can end up in the best home possible.

To look after a rabbit, all you need to do is provide a safe indoor home with plenty of human interaction & affection.

We can provide you with an indoor cage or bunny playpen, food & bedding & will pay for all associated medical costs.  If you are not familiar with rabbits, we can provide you with basic rabbit training leading to advanced skills.

We are here for you every step of the way & our community of foster carers have a wonderful support network & are happy to help you at any time.

It really is a rewarding experience knowing that you have helped the sanctuary rescue more rabbits, & when the time comes, your foster bunny finds a wonderful forever home.
