Beloved Rabbits relies on a foster care network to look after the rabbits in our care and get them ready for adoption.
Foster Care Managers are responsible for recruiting and maintaining volunteer Foster Carers and Rabbit co-ordinators within the team.
Volunteer Foster Carers work from their own home where they provide space and time to care for Beloved Rabbits allocated placements whilst permanent homes are identified.
Rabbit Co-ordinators are allocated a small group of foster carers. The co-ordinators will require regular, weekly communication with these foster carers to gather information about the rabbit’s progress to adoption (vaccination, neuter, microchip and health check). Rabbit Co-ordinators should also gather information about ongoing health concerns and treatment, the personality of the rabbits and facts.
The role of the Foster Care Manager is to manage the teams of co-ordinators and foster carers to ensure the safe care and logistical arrangements necessary to support the charity’s rescue, rehoming and adoption activities.
Foster Care Managers, with support from Rabbit Co-ordinators, are responsible for ensuring accurate records for each rabbit by entering the information gathered from foster carers into Shelter Manager.
In addition they will co-ordinate any collation of vet history required from owner’s vets at the time of surrender to the rescue.
Co-ordinating Onboarding of Volunteers
Foster Care Managers will be required to deliver induction training and onboarding activity for new Foster Carers and Rabbit Co-ordinators.
This will also involve the co-ordination of delivery/collection of any foster equipment that may be required (on loan) to the foster carer.
