Do you know if the shelter spays and neuters the rabbits? If so, it seems like it might be best to adopt the rabbits or have your coworkers adopt them from the shelter to find them good homes. I don’t know of any way or place that you could advertise the fact that you will take any unwanted rabbits.  Even if you found a way, you might be inundated with requests and end up with way more rabbits than you could handle.

 Whatever adoption fee the shelter charges for adoption will certainly be less than someone would pay to have the spay/neuter surgery performed by a private vet. People would very likely be more eager to adopt if the rabbit was already spayed and neutered. You and your coworkers could foster the rabbits until they went to a new home, but before you start taking in rabbits, you need to be pretty sure that you can find good homes for them. I volunteer at a rabbit sanctuary and we are asked to take so many rabbits. Many of the people that ask us have already tried to find homes for their rabbits, but had no luck doing so. You need to realize that you and your coworkers might end up with a lot of rabbits yourselves, if you start taking them in and don’t have any luck finding good homes for them. It’s wonderful that you want to help all the discarded rabbits that you can, but you have to be prepared and know what you are getting into.  In the time that you have the rabbits, even if it’s a short time and you have homes lined up, there will be expenses – the every day basic care expenses and there could be unexpected vet expenses.  You also have to be aware that bringing in rabbits into your home could upset your own rabbits.  I’m sorry if I sound so negative.  Believe me, I want to see as many unwanted rabbits saved as possible, but this would be a big undertaking for you and your coworkers, and it’s very likely more than you are prepared for.
