- Daily: $25/single and $5/extra rabbit in the same 4'x4' enclosure.
- Weekly (includes 1 night free): $150/single and $30/extra rabbit in the same 4'x4' enclosure.
For stays longer than 90 days, additional discounts will apply. Our rate calculator below includes all advertised discounts.
- Boarding two single rabbits in two separate pens will be $50/day.
- Boarding a single rabbit for 8 nights will be 7*$25 = $175.
If you would like to double (or even triple) the size of your rabbits' boarding enclosure to 4'x8' (or 4'x12') for their stay, please contact us for availability. We may be able to accommodate if the space permits. Rates start at $50/day and can be estimated using the calculator below.
To keep accounting and our availability simple, no, we do not charge for partial days. Rates are calculated based on exact pick-up and drop-off dates (12am to 11:59pm). If you plan on picking up your rabbit after midnight with prior discussion, that would add an additional day to your boarding fee.
No, we do not require a deposit for client reservations at this time.
While we do not have any extra penalties for changes and cancellations at this time, please let us know as early as possible if your plans change to confirm we have the space to accommodate and in consideration of other clients. We only have a limited number of boarding spaces available.
If you are changing or cancelling a reservation, please make sure you receive a written response from us to confirm. Clients that repeatedly cancel without appropriate notice may be refused future service.
Please note that refunds through Paypal and Venmo may incur a non-refundable service fee.
For most of the year, no, we do not have a minimum stay policy. However, major holidays such as July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's (marked on our boarding calendar) will require a 4-night minimum stay policy. If you request fewer nights, you will be placed on our waiting list unless we end up having space closer to the dates.
As long as we have space and see your request in time, we are generally very accommodating about urgent boarding requests. However, rabbits must be up-to-date on their RHDV2 vaccinations before they arrive for acceptance. We do not ask for an additional emergency boarding fee at this time, but we usually expect clients to place their reservations at least a week beforehand.
Please note that last-minute requests during major holidays are incredibly unlikely to be fulfilled. We are often fully booked more than a month beforehand during popular time periods, but we can place you on a waiting list upon request in case a reservation is cancelled. For example, we are usually fully booked for November and December holidays by the end of September.
We understand that not all rabbits may be neutered or litter-trained, and we can accept intact and non-litter-trained rabbits with prior notice in our boarding contracts. No extra fees will be charged at this time.
RHDV2 has been found to be spreading in Southern California since 2020. Deceased wild rabbits in Palo Alto in Santa Clara County have been found with the disease in Feb 2023. The most recently reported RHDV2 cases in California can be seen on the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) website here for domestic rabbits and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) here for wild rabbits.
All boarding requests will now require the rabbits be fully vaccinated against RHDV2 within 12 months of their arrival date for boarding.
Vaccinations should be completed at least 14 days before the rabbits' arrival if they have never been vaccinated before or if it has been more than 15 months since their last dose. Rabbits should have one of the following vaccinations within the appropriate timeline:
- the single-dose Filavac vaccine (minimum 10 weeks of age)
- the single-dose Eravac vaccine (minimum 30 days of age)
- the 2-dose Medgene RHDV2 vaccine (minimum 4 weeks of age) - Proof that both doses are completed before arrival is required if the rabbit is using Medgene vaccines for the first time regardless of previous vaccination status and veterinary opinion. Medgene has not published any research showing a single dose as a booster for the Filavac and Eravac vaccines provides sufficient immunity. The standard vaccination schedule for new Medgene vaccinations is two doses 3 weeks apart, with only a single dose required for annual boosters thereafter. Clients that refuse to provide evidence of both doses as requested will be refused service.
Rabbits that are unable to be vaccinated appropriately with valid proof (e.g. vaccination certificate, visit invoices, medical history) before their planned arrival will have their reservations cancelled and will not be accepted for boarding. Please see our manually-compiled document for a list of veterinary clinics that may currently be offering RHDV2 vaccinations. Book veterinary appointments early if you are seeking boarding for an upcoming trip. No exceptions.
While we can help with all types of bunny medical care due to our extensive experience with special needs bunnies, we cannot accept any rabbits with actively contagious diseases needing medication including but not limited to mites, fleas, E. Cuniculi, and snuffles for the safety of our rabbits and other clients. If your veterinarian does not believe your rabbit is contagious to other nearby rabbits, please provide a veterinarian's note to us saying otherwise.
We can also provide the following services during their stay for an additional fee:
- oral or topical medication - +$5/day for every 10 doses (e.g. 5 medications 2x/day, 3 medications 3x/day)
- injectible medication - +$5/dose
- subcutaneous fluids - +$5/dose
- assist feeding - +$10/feeding
- nursing care (wound cleaning, bathing, bandaging) - +$15/activity
However, please note that we are not medical professionals and will not diagnose or recommend medical treatments without the approval of your own veterinarian.
In the event of a medical emergency, additional charges may apply.
Upon request, we can lightly groom and trim rabbit nails for an additional $10 per rabbit during their stay. Please remind us at drop-off if you would like to add a nail trim as a service for your rabbits.
If you would like us to trim your rabbit's nails without a boarding reservation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the request. Nail trims without a reservation are $15 per rabbit. Please note that rabbits must be up-to-date with their RHDV2 vaccination with proof for this service.
In general, we only provide a light groom with our nail trims - this includes quickly brushing off any excess fur and cutting or shaving off mats we find on their rear end and feet. Exceptions may be made for special needs rabbit care.
If your rabbit is molting during their stay here, we will do our best to clean up any loose fur if the rabbit is amicable.
For more thorough regular grooming and trimming, we would suggest contacting another service or a veterinarian's office.
We are happy to provide picture and video updates for boarded rabbits upon daily request for no additional fee. While we may occasionally send updates to owners without prompting, owners are recommended to contact us regularly to request more current updates. Please note that you may not receive an immediate response as we are usually busy throughout the day.
Our preferred method of contact is by text, but we may also be reached through email, Instagram, and WhatsApp - communication preferences should be established in a trip detail form submitted before boarding arrival.
While we have experience with bonding rabbits, we do not provide any in-house bonding services due to the liability and excess time it takes for monitoring. If you have basic questions with the process, you are welcome to contact us for tips, but we would recommend contacting Shannon from Hoolibuns for 1:1 sessions and boarding for bonding.
No, we do not currently provide pet-sitting services for rabbits in their own home - we only do rabbit boarding at our location.
No, we do not generally provide transport to and from our location for clients. However, if you live nearby (about a 20-mile radius from 95117) and our schedule works out, we may consider assisting with transport for an additional fee (starting at $20 a trip dependent on distance) if requested.
While we may have room for a cage or two with a small footprint (under 4 sq ft) if provided, we do not board any other animals such as cats, guinea pigs, or chinchillas for their safety due to our household cats. We have experience with parakeets, cockatiels, conures, and hamsters and have boarded a tortoise before.
For other small animal boarding, we would recommend checking out the following businesses:
- Lara at Small Animal Sitters San Jose - San Jose; will watch guinea pigs, rats, mice, and hamsters
- RabbitEARS - Oakland; will watch guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, and chinchillas
