Emma’s Fostering Story

I first started fostering in July 2012.

I had bunnies as a child but hadn’t had bunnies for years. My husband wasn’t sure about having bunnies so we decided fostering would be a great idea: we could help bunnies in need and I could convince my husband we also needed to have bunnies of our own and that didn’t take much effort!

Our first foster was a lop called Travis. He had an amazing character bouncing round the house and doing crazy laps of the living room. It was hard to let him go to his forever home as I loved him but it was a great feeling to know we had been able to make him happy before he left.

My husband loved having him to stay too so we fostered a few more bunnies after that.

It’s such a great experience: you are doing something worthwhile and you get to cuddle loads of bunnies. What could be better? I now have 2 buns of my own – one I fostered, Pumpkin, who I couldn’t bear to part with and I got her a husbun also from the network, Woody. Buns are best in pairs.

I love fostering. I had to take a break for a short while, but FBRC were very understanding and supportive, and are happy to be flexible with their volunteers. I am hoping to get back to fostering soon!
