BUNNY SOCIALIZATION

VET DELIVERY AND PICKUP
 

Summary of duties: Our bunnies frequently need trips to the vet for spays and neuters, checkups, illnesses, re-checks, and other visits. We often need volunteers for transporting bunnies from the Center to the vet (typically in the morning), and from the vet back to the Center (typically in the evening). The bunnies typically spend the day at the vet between delivery and pickup. You may volunteer for one or the other based on what your schedule allows. Or if you’d like to do both, that’s great too!

Requirements:

  • Must have a valid driver’s license
  • Must have a car
  • Must be dependable and trustworthy

Location: 

  • Deliveries (typically in the morning): Bunnies are first picked up at the OHRR Adoption Center and delivered to the vet. Our usual vet is Norton Road Veterinary Hospital, though we may occasionally visit MedVet Hilliard or another location, based on the need.
  • Pick-Ups (typically in the evening): Bunnies are picked up from the vet. Our usual vet is Norton Road Veterinary Hospital, though we may occasionally visit MedVet Hilliard or another location, based on the need. Bunnies are then returned to the OHRR Adoption Center 

Sign Me Up! If you think vet delivery and pickup might be the right volunteer job for you, reach out to us and we’ll include you in the communication chain for our vet appointments.
