Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is a highly contagious disease affecting wild and domestic rabbits. RHDV2 is extremely lethal and has been reported in the Southwestern USA in 2020 (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Mexico). Please see the HRS RHDV page for more, in depth information about this virus.

What does this mean for SaveABunny?

SaveABunny has been working hard to setting up quarantine procedures and space, and to vaccinate our bunnies, which has incurred significant expense.

We also have new requirements for vaccination of rabbits who come to board at SaveABunny as well as bunnies who visit for bonding as part of our adoption process.
