House Rabbit Society of Missouri
Please book early for holiday boarding.
Spaces are limited and there were a lot of requests last year.
Be sure your bunny has had a health exam within 6 months prior to your boarding dates and that your RHDV2 vaccine is current (must be within one year of boarding dates.)
* Please see item 6 below regarding vaccinations, prior to booking.
Missouri House Rabbit Society(MOHRS) offers boarding to members only on a limited basis due to space available at our shelter in Fenton, MO. We mainly utilize large (48") dog crates, but we have pens for a bonded group of bunnies. Volunteers are experienced with rabbits. By boarding with us, the bunnies avoid being around barking dogs or in a location where rabbits aren't understood.
Rabbits are provided with a litter box, unlimited 3rd cut Small Pet Select hay, water bowls, pelleted food (we carry most good brands - but you will need to bring your own if it is something we do not carry), toys, greens, baby carrot, and limited treat. Most have a cardboard box for hiding, lounging, and chewing.
Bunnies may be dropped off on weekday evenings 7pm - 9pm before charges start, at no additional cost. The cost is $12/day for a single bunny, $14/day for a bonded pair in the same cage, and $16/day for a bonded trio in the same cage. We have a limited number of pens available. The price for a pen is $15 per day for a single or $18 for a bonded pair or $20 for a trio.
There is no additional cost for administering provided medicine.
Rabbits must be spayed or neutered, unless they are too young (under 4 months). They must have a current health exam within 6 months prior to the boarding date.
You must be a current member of MOHRS. This rule is a requirement of our permit. Membership is $25 per year and provides many benefits including boarding privileges. You can easily join MOHRS online by clicking HERE.
We need the name of your veterinarian and ask that you sign a waiver allowing us to bring your rabbit to the vet in case of an emergency. Please inform your veterinarian that your rabbit will be boarding with us. This allows you to discuss limits on treatment expenses with your vet ahead of time. Emergencies are rare but we do not want any rabbit to go untreated because the owner could not be reached.
Please note: Beginning March 1, we will require all rabbits coming into the shelter for nail/fur trims, boarding, or bonding to be vaccinated against RHDV2. Their 2nd vaccine must have been given prior to entering the rescue. For more info on RHDV2, click here.

You may drop off and pick up your rabbits only during these times.
