How to help WRR


It costs us approximately $250.00 to desex and vaccinate every rabbit. This does not include any extra veterinary treatment that may be required for sick or injured rabbits!

We run on donations only we are not government funded. Every $1.00 adds up so if you can spare even a few dollars we would be very grateful.

Here are some ways you can DONATE:

We rely heavily on foster homes for our rabbits. Sometimes it can take a long time to find a forever home - so while they wait it's nice for them to have a “temporary” home and a family to love them.

What does fostering entail? There are a few different types of fostering:

Overflow/when the shelter is full. You will care for a desexed and vaccinated WRR bunny as if he/she were your own! The foster rabbit will need to come back to the shelter on adoption days.

Sick/injured. You will need an indoor set up for this type of fostering. One of the team will show you how to care and medicate your foster rabbit. Once the rabbit is healthy and ready for desex/vaccination/rehome they can come back to the shelter.

If you would like to foster through Wellington Rabbit Rescue you will need to have your own set-up unless otherwise organized. This will need to meet the adoption requirements - 2 metres long, 2 metres wide and 1.5 metres high. The bigger the space the better!

The first step is to get photos of your set up through to us. You can send them via message or email:

Then we will send you through a foster application form.

Supporters and Sponsors:

We would like to acknowledge the many individuals and organisations that have provided sponsorship and funding, and those who continue to do so today.

Without your generous support we would not be able to carry out the work that we do to rescue rabbits and educate people on rabbit welfare.
