About Us

Orlando Rabbit Care and Adoptions, Inc. (ORCA) first existed as a social and educational organization. In 2006, it was formally incorporated and organized as a non-profit. After continued focus on education, ORCA began rescue operations in 2016. Since that time, we have grown to be one of the larger rabbit rescues in the state of Florida.

Locally, we partner with other animal rescue organizations, most of which do not serve the rabbit community. Being 100% foster-based, we rely on volunteers to support the rescue rabbits, raise awareness of the needs of domestic rabbits and manage our efforts. Meet our leadership team below.

Stevie Callan

Stevie Callan

President

Stevie Callan found ORCA in 2018 when she became a volunteer at events. Slowly, she began doing more with the rescue through social media posts, reaching out to fosters/adopters, school visits, and assisting with bunny bonding. Stevie served as the Volunteer Coordinator and Vice President before becoming President.

All three of Stevie's rabbits are rescues from different rabbit organizations, but Switch (previously Flopsy Mopsy) is from ORCA. He is bonded to Ryu (from Huntsville Friends of Rabbits) and Batman (from Furever Friends of Philadelphia).

Sascha Munn

Sascha Munn

Vice President

Sascha Munn has been involved with ORCA since 2016 when she adopted her first ORCA bunny from a hoarding situation. After that, she started fostering, volunteering at events, and is now serving as Secretary of the Board.

Sascha's ORCA rabbit, Theodore, is a double-maned lionhead and has since been bonded with Girly, an English Angora.

Andrea Jepson

Andrea Jepson

Treasurer

Andrea found ORCA in 2016 when looking for a companion for her bunny, Basil, who she saved after he just hopped into her backyard one day. He bonded with ORCA bunny Blackie, who was renamed Tallulah. During the pandemic Andrea decided to make her time working from home more interesting and less lonely by sharing her home office with a foster bunny. Andrea fostered a few bunnies, and then she fell in love with foster bunny Bubbles; that foster failed because she adopted Bubbles shortly after her beloved Basil passed away at the age of 12 ½ years.

In addition to fostering, Andrea went on to get involved with bonding events and rabbit wrangling (tracking and capturing stray domestic rabbits and bringing them to safety), and is now serving as ORCA Treasurer.

Sue Chairvolotti

Sue Chairvolotti

Adoption/Foster Co-Chairperson

Sue Chairvolotti found her way into the “Wonderful World of Wabbits” when her nieces became bored with their bunnies (sound familiar?) back in 2014 and she offered to take them. Thelma & Louise started it all and it has been a crazy ride ever since. After joining ORCA in 2018 she has volunteered as a screener for potential fosters and adopters, bunny wrangler, medical scheduler, bonding assistant, fosterer, “BunEx” Team Member (Delivering Binkies one Bunny at a Time!) and doing whatever else needs to be done for the bunns.

Her personal rabbits include Thelma, Molly, Glacier and Buzz. Zeucker is an ORCA sanctuary bunny that is a permanent resident of her home. Sue's “Rabbit Resort” also includes a variety of foster bunnies that hop on in and stay a while until they find their new foster or furever homes.

Alicia Koch

Alicia Koch

Adoption/Foster Co-Chairperson, Social Media Chairperson

Alicia Koch found ORCA after first moving to Florida from Michigan in 2019 while looking for a new rabbit sitter in the area. Then in 2020, during the height of the pandemic and after the passing of Whiskey, her first rabbit, she and her husband spent sixteen days trying to catch an abandoned rabbit in St. Cloud. Once caught, they reached out to ORCA and agreed to foster until the rabbit found a forever home. After this experience, she began volunteering to help at bonding events, transporting, wrangling rabbits, screening potential adopters and fosters, and to work alongside the Social Media Team. She is now serving as Co-Chair of the Foster and Adoptions Committee and as the Social Media Chair.

Alicia and her husband have two rabbits. Seven year old Sweetie, who was adopted from Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary during their time in Michigan and two year old Wallee, an ORCA rabbit from the Lee County Hoarding Case, who is bonded to Sweetie.
