Bun Sitters

Bun Sitters


If you are going on holidays, plan ahead for your furry friends.  Some places allow you to take bunnies with you.  If you take this option, be aware that long car trips and strange places can be stressful for some bunnies.

Bunny-savvy house sitters allow your buns to stay in their familiar environment and routine however they can be hard to find.

So the final option is a bunny hotel.  Although we do our best to only recommend knowledgeable bun accommodation, we have not personally visited and vetted their premises/services. The following institutions were recommended on the group by members, but we still advise each bun owner to personally visit the institution and decide for themselves whether they are satisfied with the living space, care givers and services offered before booking their rabbit for a stay.

Make sure to plan ahead, particularly in peak season!  Do not leave your bun alone with a bowl of food and water, even for one night.  Buns can get sick very quickly and only an experience bun person will know the signs of a bun in distress.
