Our Care Team are willing to give up some of their time on at least a once-per-week basis to assist with the general care of rescue rabbits within our fostering network.

Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care use a volunteer fostering network for the care of all their animals. We also have "Rescue Hubs" which are based in our management team's homes, housing between 6 and 12 placements each.

You would help to clean out the rabbits hutches & runs, feed, water, handle and play with rescue rabbits in their care.

We would ask that you commit to at least one weekly slot of at least 2 hours, but can usually be flexible in terms of daytime, evening & weekend working.

We have three roles available within our Care Team at our Glasgow Rescue Hub (nicknamed The Warren).

Rabbit Carer

For volunteers aged 16 years or over only.  Vacancies currently available for volunteering on Wednesday - Saturday only.

Our Rabbit Carers, after completing their basic induction training, will be able to conduct their duties without regular supervision.  Rabbit Carers provide all aspects of care needed including feeding, grooming, medications and treatments and socialisation.   Flexibility is available across the rota/schedule for our Rabbit Carer’s who can slot into shifts dependent on the needs of The Warren timetable and their own availability.  However, they will be asked to avoid our specified Care Assistant days, unless shifts become free due to absence.  At present our Care Assistant days are Monday, Tuesday and Sunday.

Care Assistant

For volunteers aged 12 to 15 years only.  ** No Current Vacancies ** Check back in January 2018 **

Our Care Assistant volunteers are aged 12 to 15, who will be matched to an appropriate Care Lead.  Care Assistants will perform similar duties to a Rabbit Carer (above), but will be offered full supervision, support and direction from their Care Lead.  In addition there will be an ongoing training and support programme ( that will support the Care Assistants to develop their knowledge and understanding of rabbit welfare as they volunteer, with recognition given at regular intervals of their development and hours volunteering.  As well as providing a strong background and evidence should the Care Assistant be seeking career or training opportunities within animal welfare, this will prepare them well for becoming a Rabbit Carer when they reach the age of 16.

Care Lead

For volunteers aged 16 years or over only.  ** No Current Vacancies **

Care Leads are Rabbit Carers with the additional responsibility for supervising and mentoring our Care Assistants.  Each members of the PVG Scheme, they will offer the essential support needed for our Care Assistants to develop their knowledge and skills in rabbit welfare.

Full training & support will be given for all roles.
