HKRS aims to flight for living rights, respects and concerns for rabbits and also to minimize the number of abandonment. We hold campaigns and activities to promote knowledge and responsibilities of raising rabbits, caring to animal, respects of lives so that we can build a harmonious community between humans and animals. As we are a non-profitable organization, there are very limited resources, and we need volunteers’ support to facilitate our work, including campaign, social activities, caring service, education and other coordination. Besides participating in our different activities and services, what more important is a larger force could be formed on striving for better welfare to rabbits.
We are now recruiting new volunteers to have a greater help force on the increasing number of abandoned rabbits. Volunteers would be responsible for cage-cleaning, general care, foster family and other promotion campaign. We welcome people from all sectors to register in this new voluntary reward program namely. This is an opportunity for you to help those abandoned rabbits.
