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.)

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 that are Care Credit members. This allows the client to charge their bill and make payments to Care Credit. If the Care Credit 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:
Waggle

GoFundMe

YouCaring

These organizations may be able to help guardians with veterinary bills. HRS cannot vouch for these organizations, nor can we guarantee that they will help you.
