Hop to It! Volunteers Needed for our Spring Events!

Hope you are all enjoying this taste of Spring (and I hope it hangs around)! With the warmer weather, our 2012 event season will heat up quickly, too! We've already got several events on the books for the next few months, and we are ALWAYS in need of volunteers to help out! Take a look at the list below and click the links provided to see more details and sign up if you'd like to lend a hand. (We are using a new sign-up system, so please let me know of any glitches you encounter!)

These are all FUN events that are also a great way to "get your feet wet" to be more involved with CHRS and help the rabbits in Central Ohio! All volunteers are required to be familiar with HRS policies and practices regarding rescue, spay/neuter, diet, etc. New volunteers are always paired with one or more of our Educators who will answer questions and help you learn.
