About us

Where are you located?

Our boarding location is our private home, located in West San Jose 95117 near Starbird Park. We are about 3 miles southwest of Westfield Valley Fair in Santa Clara.

Our exact address will be provided after a boarding contract has been signed and returned to us by email to confirm the reservation. Please use our new client form to request a copy of the contract.

Can I visit the boarding location to see the area beforehand?

Due to the risks of RHDV2, myxomatosis, and COVID-19, we are not allowing any in-person tours of our boarding areas, but we are happy to provide more examples of our past boarding setups upon request if the pictures on our Boarding page are not sufficient. You can also see pictures of previously boarded rabbits on our social media pages – e.g. Instagram.

Alice

I have been a rabbit lover and owner since 2012 and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. I volunteer and foster kittens and rabbits regularly for the local rescues. When I am not taking care of rabbits, I work as a software engineer at a local tech company and run my small online business, SS Bunny Imports.

Kevin

I have owned and cared for rabbits since 2012 with Alice and have been a San Jose resident for over 20 years. I helped bond our personal rabbits Bao Bao and Luna and the Squishies (Squishy, Squishette, and Romeo). Similarly to Alice, I also work as a software engineer at a local tech company when not helping her with cleaning litter boxes, feeding hay, and trimming rabbit nails.

  • Head tilt and ear infections (appropriate enclosure setup, medication)
  • Arthritis (appropriate enclosure setup, medication, supplements)
  • Dental issues (detection, supportive care, medication)
  • Sprained limbs (appropriate enclosure setup, medication)
  • Snuffles, respiratory issues, and rabbit allergies (detection, environmental support, medication)
