Due to outbreaks of RHVD2, Sweet Dreams Bunny Lodge has closed until further notice.
Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV2) is a highly contagious deadly rabbit disease that kills both wild and domestic rabbits, and it is now in Southern California. Because it can be spread so easily, I have shut down my boarding business for the safety of all of our rabbits.
Please read this information from House Rabbit Society to learn more about the disease, and take the necessary biosecurity precautions to keep your bunnies safe: https://rabbit.org/rhdv/
In order to board your bunnies in the future, you will need to get them vaccinated against RHDV2. (I'm pretty certain this will be the case with any boarding facility, not only mine.) Please contact your rabbit vet to schedule vaccination.
Welcome to Alison Giese’s Sweet Dreams Bunny Lodge, offering tender loving bunny care for your house rabbits in my home in Cardiff-by-the-Sea since 2005. I am an experienced rabbit caretaker and have been actively volunteering for the San Diego House Rabbit Society since 2003.
Sweet Dreams Bunny Lodge is a safe and comfortable place for your bunnies to stay while you are away. Your furry companions will be kept inside my house, where I will keep a close eye on them to make sure they are happy and healthy. Both my husband and I are able to check on our guest bunnies frequently thoughout the day, as we both work from home. During your bunnies' stay, they will reside in a spacious exercise pen where they will have lots of room to run. (See photos at bottom of this page.) Accommodations include the pen, a litterbox filled with unlimited hay (changed daily), water bowl or bottle (changed daily), fresh organic vegetables and nutritious timothy pellets at mealtime, toys to play with, and plenty of TLC and attention. Sweet Dreams Bunny Lodge has air-conditioning and heating for optimal comfort and well-being of your bunnies during their stay.

If your bunny has any favorite toys, special treats or preferred foods, please provide them when you drop off your furry friend. Please note that only spayed or neutered rabbits will be accepted. (Exceptions made in certain cases. Please inquire.)
Advance reservations are recommended, but if you don't have much advance warning, I can typically handle last-minute requests. Rates are calculated based on the number of nights your bunnies stay.
In the unlikely event that your bunny needs to visit a vet during her stay here, please either make arrangements with your own regular vet or work with me to make payment arrangements with my regular vet, who is excellent and very close by. I will make all possible efforts to contact you before taking your pet to the vet. If emergency care is needed, I may have to take your bunny to an after-hours clinic or hospital, and the costs will be added to your bill. If your bunnies need any medications or special treatments, please provide them and your vet's instructions for their use. A small additional fee will be charged.
Three Pen Sizes to Choose From! (Photos of the pen sizes can be seen at the bottom of this page.) Sweet Dreams Bunny Lodge offers deluxe accommodations for your bunny(s)! Larger pen sizes are available for those of you who'd like your bunny to have more space while they are here.* If you have active bunnies or bunnies who are used to having free run at home, they will particularly enjoy the larger pen options. (See the Rates & Services page for the cost of these upgrades.)
*Pending space availability. May not be available during major holidays.
