Volunteering Opportunities

HRSS volunteers are all animal lovers who work together because of their shared concern for the hundreds of rabbits that are abandoned to shelters or released outdoors every year in Singapore.

As an HRSS volunteer you will educate people about the responsibilities involved in owning a pet rabbit. You can also help in rescuing abandoned rabbits and you can provide a foster home while they await adoption.

Volunteering with HRSS is demanding but the rewards will more than justify the efforts you put in. We guarantee that you will have a fun time and establish friendships which last a lifetime. But perhaps the biggest reward will be the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference in the lives of helpless animals who can't speak for themselves.

To be a HRSS volunteer, you must:

  • Believe in and fully agree with HRSS philosophy and policies
  • Be a Singapore resident or have strong ties to Singapore. If you do not satisfy this requirement, you may consider joining rabbit welfare organisations in your community such as the House Rabbit Society.

How can you help HRSS?

We are looking for volunteers to help with the following roles.

HRSS runs a structured fostering programme to rescue and re-home abandoned rabbits. HRSS-rescued rabbits are kept at the homes of HRSS volunteers - called foster parents - until they are adopted.

If you wish to be a foster parent, you need to have prior experience in taking care of rabbits. The rabbit's health and general well being will be your responsibility. You will need to visit the vet if the rabbit in your care falls sick or needs to be sterilised (HRSS will reimburse medical expenses). You will also arrange meetings between the rabbit and potential adopters at your home.

Our schools' programme serves to impart the young with the right attitude in treating and caring for animals. We need volunteers who can organise talks and fundraisers at schools. You will work with our Education Officer and it is expected that you have an outgoing personality and are comfortable giving talks to a large audiences. Most school talks are on weekdays.

You will contribute articles for our website and the quarterly newsletter. You will work closely with our Editor. Volunteers for this role should have a good command of the English language.

We also need volunteers for the following roles:

  • Proper rabbit care guidance or counselling for new rabbit owners.
  • Organising and managing fund-raising events.
  • Sourcing of incentives or sponsorships for the Friends of HRSS program.

Please note that to become a HRSS volunteer, you are required to fully agree with HRSS philosophy and policies. Specifically, HRSS volunteers agree never to breed rabbits or exploit them for commercial reasons.

We gladly welcome you to the family, and hope to work with you soon.
