Thank you for your interest in becoming a Bunny Blessings Volunteer!
Please read the information below before completing and submitting the volunteer information.
We have 3 different volunteer opportunities within our ministry:
Bunny Care - We are located at 418 Ewing Dr. in Belmont, NC. Please be aware of our location and your ability to travel to us at least twice a month before requesting training for this position.
We have two Bunny Care shifts each day. Bunny Care shifts are covered by volunteers in the mornings (typically by 9:30 am or earlier) and evenings (starting any time between 5:00-9:00). These shifts require at least 1.5 hr commitment with some volunteers choosing to stay 3-4 hrs. Duties include feeding bunnies, cleaning/refilling water containers, changing 1-3 litter boxes, sweeping/vacuuming/spot-cleaning bunny homes, playtime for all bunnies, removal of trash, etc. This volunteer position has a high level of physical activity. Sometimes the volunteer will need to move 40 lb. bags of pine pellets, large boxes of timothy hay, 30 lb. bags of feed and take out the trash.
If age 17 or less, you must have an adult present with you during training and shifts. You will be required to provide the name, address and phone number of the accompanying adult below.
Ages 16-17 may be able to volunteer solo after a period of training and proven shifts.
We will provide one-on-one training in the barn with you.
Event Volunteer- Our mission to Love One Another in our community sends us out to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, schools, libraries and other locations 1-3 times per week. Event volunteers may meet at the Bunny Barn located at 418 Ewing Dr. in Belmont, NC (and potentially ride the Bunny Mobile) or meet us at the event location. Locations may be throughout the Charlotte area, typically less than 1 hour from Belmont. Our visits usually last about 1 hour. Please plan to arrive 15-30 minutes before start time for set up and remain 15-30 minutes afterwards for clean up and take down. During an event you will be assisting folks who want to hold our bunnies, provide them information about our nonprofit ministry, and simply smile and be a friend. Training for this is provided. The schedule is very flexible, you may pick and choose depending on your own schedule and availability. We ask that you serve at least once a month.
Special Projects- Occasionally we have projects around the Bunny Barn that need to be completed. This is an excellent opportunity for occasional volunteering as best meets your schedule. Duties may include extra cleaning, outside chores, small projects, etc. If you have a passion or gift for certain things that may benefit our ministry, please share with us so we can best use your talents
