View Full Version : Rabbit/Rodent Fosters

1st June 2009, 09:48 PM
We have a very good but small team of fosters who help out with rabbits and rodents that come into rescue and desperately need more to cope with the amount of animals we have waiting to come in. We are a rescue run by volunteers so have no paid staff but in return you get the satisfaction of knowing you have been able to make a difference.

If you can drive its a bonus but not essential.

Let me know if you think you can help out

Is it possible to adopt rabbits from this rescue centre? I would like to get hold of a rabbit as I used to look after some but haven't been able to for a while. Where are ou based?

Hi Jess,

Michelle is based in Gateshead I think but we have rescues on here all over the UK that rehome rabbits.

We do have a homes offered section here: viewforum.php?f=82 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewforum.php?f=82) It might be worth putting up a request in there giving details of what type/age/sex of rabbit you're looking for and then rescue reps can let you know if they have any suitable near you. :grin:

Hope that helps and good luck in your search! :crossed:

might sound daft now but never done fostering before - do you have to have the equipment ready and waiting for the animal/s?

me and my hubby could prob take on two tame hamsters but we dont yet have cages etc but im not sure how this works? we could prob take on more than that to be honest but got to start somewhere lol x

I am sure she will only be to glad to talk to you about what's needed to be a foster carer for her

That's a lovely offer Danielle, thank you! :D

It depends, some rescues may have equipment you can borrow. Is it just hamsters you were looking at fostering?

It's worth popping down a few details in the database here: viewforum.php?f=87 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewforum.php?f=87) That way if any rescues are specifically looking for people who can help foster they can search in there and will be able to get in touch with you. :)

As Kelly says, there are also other rescues who are looking for fosterers at the moment so it all depends on what animals you'd be happy to foster. :D

I can foster mice, hamsters and gerbils providing I get cages providing. I do have a big mice cage at the moment but it has 3 new young mice at the moment.
