Drop off your rabbit with sitter

Thank you for your interest in House Rabbit Network Bunsitting Services! We have experienced, rabbit-savvy volunteers throughout eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire who will care for your rabbits in their homes in exchange for a donation to HRN.

As of October 2022, our daily rate is $25 a day per pen. A pen can house up to a trio of bonded rabbits.

1. ​Fill out the request form below.


2. Once we receive your request, we begin reaching out to our sitters, making every attempt to find someone for your dates within the driving distance you have specified. This process sometimes takes a day, but can take several. Please be patient as we try to fulfill your request.

​A few things to keep in mind: the farther away you are willing to drive to drop off/pick up your bun, the better our chances of finding a sitter. Similarly, the more time you can give us, the better.

​3. When we have found a potential match, we will email you and the sitter to introduce you. From there, you coordinate with the sitter about the specifics of drop off/pick up. Please keep in mind that our sitters are volunteers and do not receive a stipend from HRN, so we request that you provide some items to the sitter. You can discuss the needed items when you contact each other, but here is a suggested list.


4. Payment is due online when you receive your email invoice prior to drop off.

5. Drop off your rabbit at your sitter's house and enjoy your trip!

Boarding Agreement & liability of release

This Rabbit Boarding Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into between the House Rabbit Network (“HRN”), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and the rabbit parent, identified above. HRN provides rabbit boarding services through its volunteers. I, as the rabbit parent, hereby engage HRN to provide boarding services for my rabbit(s) as set forth by this Agreement. The rate for boarding ($25/day per pen of rabbits, up to 3 bonded rabbits) is to be paid in full prior to drop off. I understand this is a donation to House Rabbit Network. HRN recommends that you provide the same pellets that your rabbit(s) are used to at home for consistency. Each sitter may have specific requests for items for you to provide for your rabbit(s); discuss this with the sitter when you contact each other. The boarding rate does not cover any medical costs that may arise. I have fully disclosed any preexisting conditions or afflictions of which I have knowledge. Medical Treatment In the event that the boarding home decides medical care is necessary, I do hereby give permission for the boarding home to provide any medical care that the boarding home, in its sole discretion, determines is reasonably needed for my pet for any condition which may develop or be discovered while my pet is boarding, or any preexisting condition disclosed above. I understand that every reasonable effort will be made to contact me prior to performing any tests or treatments on my pet, but I agree that failure to reach me shall not result in a postponement of such tests or treatments if such postponement could be harmful to my rabbit(s), or if my rabbit(s) are suffering. While every effort will be made to save my pet, I understand that the boarding home may euthanize my pet if it is the humane thing to do. I agree to pay in full for any such care given to my pet as described above, including but not limited to, veterinary fees, veterinary tests and treatments, and any prescriptions. Liability I agree to release, indemnify, and hold harmless HRN and the foster home from any and all manner of damages, claims, loss, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees and related costs, arising out of or related to HRN’s services, except which may arise from the gross negligence or intentional and willful misconduct of HRN or the foster home, including, without limitation, (i) any inaccuracy in any statement I made or information I provided to HRN; (ii) my rabbit, including but not limited to destruction of property, bites or scratches, injury, and transmission of disease, and (iii) any action by me which is in breach of the terms and conditions of this agreement. I expressly agree that the maximum aggregate liability of HRN and its officers, directors, employees, contractors, volunteers, and representatives (the “HRN Parties”) shall be limited to the lesser of the current chattel value of a pet rabbit or the sum of $75.00. Pick-Up and Cancellation If I need to cancel my boarding reservation, I will contact HRN as soon as possible, but in any event, no later than 2 days prior to the boarding start date. I understand that HRN reserves the right to charge a late cancellation fee after this time. I agree to promptly pick up my rabbit(s) upon the end date listed above. If, for some reason, I am unable to pick up my rabbit(s) on the date listed above, I will contact HRN as soon as possible to make arrangements to extend my rabbit’s stay, and I will pay the additional charges based upon the aforesaid daily rate. I understand that if my rabbit(s) are not picked up within one week of the end date, they will be turned over to a shelter. I have read this entire Agreement. I have discussed any questions I have regarding this Agreement with HRN, and I agree to its terms.

I have read and agree to the above boarding agreement and liability release policy
