Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (B.U.N.S.) Seeking Volunteers to Help with Rabbit Care

B.U.N.S., which stands for Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter, is an all volunteer run non profit organization that provides all aspects of care to the homeless rabbits at Santa Barbara County Animal Service’s Santa Barbara Shelter.


Due to a significant increase in the number or rabbits being housed at the shelter, B.U.N.S. is seeking new volunteers to help with the care.

B.U.N.S. volunteers handle all aspects of the rabbit care including, feeding and watering, giving fresh vegetables, cleaning cages and litter pans, grooming, socializing, exercising, and fostering. Opportunities for growth including shuttling bunnies to and from vet appointments, adoption counseling, and helping with outreach projects such as Basic Bunny Classes. Volunteer positions are open seven days a week for those willing to give an hour or two of their time. Volunteers are especially needed on Monday and Friday mornings.

Looking to add a little fur in your life? Rabbits make great companions and B.U.N.S. has a great selection of adoptable rabbits to choose from. For $30 you can adopt a B.U.N.S. rabbit that has been spayed or neutered and comes with a clean bill of health. Adoption application and approval required.

Volunteering with the rabbits is fun, rewarding, and a great way to give back to the community. B.U.N.S. volunteers do earn community service hours. Interested volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult partner volunteer. For more information call Deborah at 805-649-9197 or e-mail BUNS at 1rabbitrescue@gmail.com. You can also hop into the shelter at 5473 Overpass Rd in Santa Barbara to check things out.
