Boarding

Boarding fees and donations are the primary ways we raise money towards our extensive veterinary and animal care expenses.

We've been boarding and loving rabbits for 20 years. We know it's important for your bunny(bunnies) to be cared for and respected for their own personality, likes and dislikes. Our boarding is home style, so drop off times are typically between 9 am and 6pm. We will do our best to accommodate you at other times on a case by case basis. We are volunteer-run, so we appreciate your flexibility.

RHDV2 Vaccination Requirements

Effective December 15, 2020, all rabbits boarding at SaveABunny must be vaccinated for RHDV-2 at least 10 days prior to arrival. A veterinarian's certificate showing the vaccination date must be shown before your rabbit can enter SaveABunny premises. Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus-2 has been spreading worldwide and has now reached California. It is a deadly virus with an almost 100% fatality rate for rabbits. Whether you board your bunny with us or not, we strongly recommend you talk to your veterinarian about vaccinating your rabbits. Please do this today.



    Vaccine in stock (as of July 2021):

    Please be aware that vaccine availability changes quickly. Because state law requires an exam prior to vaccination we've listed each price where known, but prices may change. Some clinics may also require your bunny to receive a microchip (if they don't already have one).
