House Rabbit Society is always looking for new rabbit rescue organizations to become House Rabbit Society chapters!

How does it work?

House Rabbit Society chapters are managed by a chapter manager. In order to become a chapter, you must first apply to be a licensed HRS educator, and be managing your own rabbit rescue organization, which must be a 501c3, and must have rescued at least 10 rabbits. You will also need to have at least one other HRS educator working with you. Your foster homes must be in full accordance with HRS policies, and you yourself must be in agreement with HRS philosophies. Finally, you will need to sign (via the application) the Chapter Manager’s Pledge.

What does running a chapter entail?

Responsibilities usually include:

•Coordinating state or regional fostering and educational programs.
•Providing a network for local members
•Educating local members through mailings or local newsletters.
•Solving urgent problems with a telephone hotline
•Building and maintaining a website to promote foster rabbits for adoption and educating about domestic rabbit care and behavior
•Organizing educational seminars
•Expanding membership
•Making financial and fundraising decisions for the area.
•Allocating donations to support local programs and national HRS’ special health projects
•Helping local animal shelters with rescue and education programs.
•Participating in HRS activities such as participation on email lists and in-training programs

Think you have what it takes? Then consider applying to be a chapter today!
