Volunteers are an important part of our organization and an asset that cannot be replaced. They are a vital link to the community that helps to build positive exposure for the TRACS. Volunteers add much needed socialization and companionship for our animals, both those in sanctuaries and those waiting for their forever homes. Volunteers have a commitment that is genuine to the welfare of the animals.

We have a wide variety of positions available. You can volunteer once a week or less frequently if that fits your schedule. We’ll give you the training you need to be successful.
Although our greatest need is at our Rabbit Sanctuaries, we also have a variety of other positions that are performed away from the animals. There are both on-going positions and one-time projects, which are a great way to volunteer for a more limited amount of time.
Occasionally we need a foster home for an animal in transition. If you would like to be on our foster list to be called when an opportunity comes up let us know. The rewards are endless.
Cleaning our Bunny Pens is where our most need lies. This weekly task provides a great way to spend time with the animals while helping with a vital function of the sanctuary. This is a physical position and good exercise for someone stuck in an office all day. It is also the best way to make friends with all the rabbits, as they will come hopping to you when they see you are there with food! Pen cleaning takes place on weekends.
Pick Up and Delivery of Produce Donations
We are fortunate to receive donations of produce from various local grocery stores. This food must be picked up on a specific schedule and delivered to various sites. If you don’t mind driving but don’t have time to feed or do other chores, this is a great way to help out.
The purpose of a Work Day is to tackle those bigger projects like site and building maintenance and repairs, and other tasks that can’t be accomplished during regular business hours. Upcoming Work Days can be found on the “events” page of our website and are a good job for individuals who are unable to commit to a regular time or can help out only occasionally. This is also a physical job and requires stamina.
We constantly seek to improve the sanctuary and make needed repairs, so there are always projects, from simple to more complex that we need skilled volunteers to work on. If you have any experience with such jobs we would love your help!
It is always a struggle for us to keep the grass mowed and weeds under control at our sanctuaries. We would also love to grow a garden of fresh veggies for our bunnies, so if you have a green thumb and the time let us know.
Do you have an interest in fundraising? Our event planning team has a spot for you! They plan fun events to help raise funds for the rabbits and build awareness of our cause. Helping at these events is also a wonderful opportunity for individuals who don’t have time available on a regular basis, but would still like to get involved and help the rabbits.
Skilled grant writers find appropriate grant opportunities for GLRS. If you have an interest in grant writing we’d love to hear from you!
As a volunteer-run organization, we depend on having a solid group of committed volunteers to keep the organization vital and healthy. If you have volunteer recruitment experience, please contact us!
Do you have marketing skills and knowledge? We would love help in promoting our mission as well as educating the public on the needs of domestic rabbits in our area
