Rabbit rescue needs help to complete sanctuary

“The uptick in the construction industry has made it really difficult for us to get volunteers,” laments founder Sorelle Saidman. “It’s a good news, bad news scenario I guess, but everybody is working. All the companies have paying projects lined up. We had companies volunteering to help out when we started but they got too busy. We ended up having to hire somebody for a lot of it but now we’re out of funds and winter is coming.”
The rabbit rescue is looking for construction help, as well as general labour and donations of materials, tools and supplies as well as funds to apply to the project.
The rescue is a registered charity and can offer tax receipts in many cases.
The sanctuary is located at a rented farm on No. 6 Road in Richmond, and hopes to be able to house several hundred of the abandoned pet rabbits running loose in the city.
