Boarding

House Rabbit Society no longer offers rabbit boarding at our headquarters in Richmond, CA, due to the emergence of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV2) in California.
 
Below are alternate petsitting options for rabbits.
  • Ask about pricing, as well as the type of enclosure where your bunny will stay.
  • Discuss RHDV with your petsitter, so together you can plan how to keep your rabbit safe.
  • If there are multiple rabbits on the property, many boarding options require all rabbits to be current on their annual RHDV vaccine. Call your vet or our list of rabbit-savvy vets to find a vet who currently has RHDV vaccines. The vaccine reaches full protection 1 week after vaccination.
  • The safest option is to have your rabbit(s) cared for in your home, or boarded where they will be the only rabbit(s) on the property. RHDV is a very contagious disease, and if one rabbit on a property dies, the State Veterinarian’s office could require all the rabbits on the property to be euthanized or quarantined on site for 4 months or longer (confirmed with CA State Vet office May 2020).
