Dear Members and Friends,

Tonight, Governor Newsom issued a statewide ‘Stay at Home’ order to go into effect at midnight to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Because San Diego House Rabbit Society is an essential service provider, staff will still be allowed to come to work and care for the animals. The order exempts those who work in critical sectors, like us. The key is to practice social distancing (staying 6 feet away from each other), washing our hands and not touching our faces.  

This also means that our store will stay open. Currently, we are only letting 5 people in at a time at 15 min increments. We are keeping our doors locked so people will have to ring the doorbell to let us know they are there and when entering, please use the hand sanitizer at the door.  We are still limiting customers to 1 box of hay, 1 bag of pellets and 1 bag of carefresh at this time.

We have suspended all adoptions, grooming, boarding and community education events until further notice. 

Our work to save the lives of rabbits who would be at risk of euthanasia, and to help the rabbits at San Diego House Rabbit Society will not stop, and will be undertaken with care.  Veterinarians around the world assure us there is no risk to companion animals of contracting coronavirus, but it is essential that the people who love and care for rabbits stay healthy in this difficult time. 

We appreciate your patience as we navigate each day with these new challenges. We will continue to send updates via email regarding any changes or disruption in our services. 

Your ongoing support helps San Diego House Rabbit Society to continue our lifesaving work to help rabbits now and in the future. 

If you have any questions, please call the shelter at 858-565-2869 or email .
