Resources to Help Pay Vet Bills
House Rabbit Society cannot provide funds to help guardians who can’t afford to pay their veterinary bills.
One way to ensure that you won’t be caught without the funds to pay for your rabbit’s health care is to purchase a pet health insurance policy. There is one company in the US which offers veterinary insurance for rabbits: Nationwide Pet Insurance.
Check with veterinary schools in your state to see if they offer discount services to the public. You can find a list of veterinary schools in the Education section of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s website.
Check with your local municipal animal shelter or humane society to see if there are low cost services in your area.
Care Credit allows clients to finance veterinary (and other medical) care at offices which are members; this plan allows the client to charge their bill and make payments to Care Credit. If the bill is paid in full by a pre-determined time, there is no interest charged.
You can also fundraise for yourself through a crowd-funding website:
