Beloved Rabbits

Charity registered in Scotland SC049128

Beloved Rabbits is a registered Scottish Charity devoted to rabbit welfare, providing various services including rescue, rehoming, bonding & care advice. Using Foster Families to care for our rabbits, we also present rabbit welfare demonstrations and classes to schools, and have fundraising and awareness events at many local galas and community events, pet stores and shopping centres.


Current opportunities

Our Rabbit Co-ordinators are central to the success of our new plan. Each Rabbit Co-ordinator will be aligned to a small group of foster carers. When a rabbit is placed with a foster carer, the Rabbit Co-ordinator will be in touch within a few days to discuss the rabbits care plan. Through this informal chat, which may happen by phone, video call, messenger, WhatsApp – or whatever tool works for you both, the Rabbit Co-ordinator and Foster Carer will chat about the rabbits' health, behaviour, diet, temperament, likes and dislikes and together they will agree on a Care Plan for each rabbit. The Rabbit Co-ordinator will help identify appointments needed at The Bunny Bothy and advise the foster carer of any vet appointments that should also be booked. The Rabbit Co-ordinator will record the entire care plan within Shelter Manager, our online software for managing all our rabbit and adoption records. So all the management team, care teams and Bunny Bothy teams will be able to see exactly what is happening and when for that rabbit. The Rabbit Co-ordinator’s will ensure accurate, consistent recording of data throughout the process. And after that chat, they also know more about the rabbits too – so they will help ensure we have an accurate bio in place for sharing on the website and social media too.

Beloved Rabbits are entering a new phase of ambitious development that seeks to improve the charity’s financial strength as we work towards a three-year plan that will culminate in the opening of a new purpose designed rabbit welfare services centre. To support the organisation’s operational vision, a Fundraising Strategy is being developed to underpin the funding necessary to achieve these goals. The Supporter Engagement Manager is one of four critical roles identified within the Fundraising Strategy necessary to meet the fundraising objectives. The role forms part of the charity’s two-tier management structure encompassing four charity trustees and 10 Management Team members. There is also a wider team of dedicated volunteers in excess of 80 individuals, which we anticipate growing in number as we expand our activities further. The Supporter Engagement Manager would focus on creating a culture of engagement with the overall supporter base. This role recognises a need to address the gap left from more traditional fundraising techniques, engaging individuals who wish to support the charity’s activities but are unwilling or unable to take part in fundraising activities in a traditional sense. The Supporter Engagement Manager will build relationships with various groups of supporters to encourage them to feel involved and emotive about the charity’s activities and needs, encouraging aspects such as regular giving, payroll giving, word-of-mouth awareness, legacy giving, etc. Ultimately the Supporter Engagement Manager will encourage the “Fundraising Conversation”, backing our supporters and volunteers with the information and resources they need to keep a steady flow of cash coming into the organisation. It is anticipated that, with the support of the Board of Trustees and Management Team, the Supporter Engagement Manager would recruit dedicated and casual volunteers to assist with the delivery of their activities.
