Hoolibuns is a quality-based environment that our boarders affectionately call "bun camp".
We created boarding that is an enriching, nurturing, and fun place for rabbits, which provides peace of mind for bun parents. We are the only local boarding option that provides daily playtime outside of their pen, which is essential for buns. Read more about the importance of daily playtime on our blog.
Your bun(s) are in great hands with our founder, Shannon Ryan. She has 30+ years of experience with bunnies, including extensive work with special needs bunnies, and is the creator of the "bunny-centric" philosophy and behavior training methodology. Shannon is a Licensed Educator with House Rabbit Society (HRS), is Fear Free Certified, and works with rabbit rescue organizations across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Here is what one of our customers has to say "I will only board my buns at Camp Hoolibuns. I was nervous to leave my buns for an extended period of time but Shannon sent pics and updates the entire time. Honestly, I don't think my buns wanted to leave. They were so comfortable with her and in her home." Read more testimonials here.
