If you think you have what it takes to help care for rabbits in our short-term facilities and to introduce them to their new owners, get in touch today.

Welfare Check Team

For volunteers aged from 18 years.

Our Welfare Check Team are responsible for doing our morning checks on the rabbits in our care at The Hoppy Hub in Kirkintilloch (G66).

As a team member you will be responsible for checking in on the rabbits and ensuring that their basic welfare needs are met - hay supply is topped up, water supply is checked and the health and welfare of each rabbit is checked to make sure everybunny is feeling good!

There may be a need to assist with taking rabbits to urgent or routine appointments with one of our local vet practices if required too.

Importantly, we invite our Welfare Check Team members to spend some time with the rabbits within our care.  Basic socialisation with the rabbits is a very important part of what we do to prepare rabbits for their new homes.

We are looking for individuals who can spare approx. 1 hour at least one morning per week, with flexibility around the timing to suit your other commitments as appropriate (visits should take place at some point between 7am and 11am).

Initial Induction Training

You will be required to shadow our evening shift (typically 6.30pm until 8.30pm) on at least two occasions to allow for necessary induction training for this role.

Ongoing Support

You will have access to a dedicated emergency reporting helpline during your shift.

You will also be invited to regular team meetings for important updates and training on an ongoing basis.

As with all our volunteers, you will also be invited to our volunteer collaboration system online to engage and chat about your role and rabbit welfare with the whole team.
