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 funds to pay for your rabbit’s health care is to purchase a pet insurance policy before your rabbit becomes sick/injured. There is one company in the US which offers veterinary insurance for rabbits: Nationwide Pet Insurance. (Learn more about pet insurance.)
