Friends of Willow is looking for a facility to house the rabbits in our care. We are looking for your help to fund our first year's rent!
The average price of commercial rental space in the Greater Portland area is $17.00 per square foot. Friends of Willow would need a minimum of 1,000 square feet to operate out of and are looking for $17,000 to help cover our expected first years rent.
Friends of Willow is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to providing rescue, shelter, medical care, and spay/neuter services for abandoned, abused, or neglected rabbits in Southern Maine. The mission of Friends of Willow is to (1) place all of these rabbits into permanent and loving, safe indoor homes and to (2) educate the public regarding companion rabbit care, the benefits of adopting, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
Friends of Willow was founded in 2011 by a group of individuals sharing a love of rabbits and with a common interest in rescuing and rehabilitating domestic rabbits. Friends of Willow is made up entirely of volunteers who dedicate time, money, and energy to move Friends of Willow toward its goals. Friends of Willow Board Members average over 10 years of experience with rabbits and many have core animal sheltering experience. Friends of Willow Members use their knowledge and skills to educate the public about proper rabbit care and sustaining a healthy relationship with rabbit family members.
