House Rabbit Society cannot provide funds to help guardians who can’t afford to pay their veterinary bills.

Pet Insurance

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.)

Local Low-Cost Options

Check with your local municipal animal shelter or humane society to see if there are low cost services in your area.

Financing

Care Credit lets you finance veterinary care (or other medical care) at offices that are Care Credit members, and make payments over time. If the Care Credit bill is paid in full by a pre-determined time, there is no interest charged.

Scratchpay lets you finance veterinary care (or other medical care) at offices that are Scratchpay members, and make payments over time.

You can also fundraise for yourself through a crowd-funding website:
