    I got a bonded pair from a rescue in San Diego. They charged $45 per rabbit BUT requested additional donation to cover neuter $45, or spay $90.
    So a male would really be $90 and a female $135.

    They were the most pricey I've paid ($225 for the pair), but I was ok with it because it worked out that they ended up dropping them off here in AZ.

    So, in short, for California, it's a good price!

    The local rabbit rescue and humane society have all their buns at $80. Perfectly normal and an awesome deal.

    I just adopted my new two from the Ventura County animal shelter and they were $50 and came neutered. The two I had previously came from LA city and county shelters and were each $25 but that was 6 years ago and I believe both are up to at least $50 now.

    $75 is definitely a good price and certainly cheaper than you could get a spay done for around these parts.

    At the Humane Society here in Edmonton rabbits are $60 to adopt which includes spaying/neutering.

    I got my bunny from a co-worker for free but recently shelled out $290 to have him neutered!

    My rescue charges a $55 adoption fee for a spayed/neutered bunny.

    If she's fixed, socialized, trained, etc. like LakeCondo said, its really worth it! If she wasn't fix, i'd say thats a little pricey...

    Pretty much any rescue is a good deal financially compared to getting all the vet stuff done yourself. With a spay being $300+ around here and the humane societies charging about $50, it is a significant savings. Even at $100 for a bunny it would still be worth it.

    WOW! You can get spayed/neutered rabbits for less than 80$? I wish I lived where you guys live now...
    Up here, at the province rabbit rescue, it's 150$ for an altered rabbit that is vet checked and in foster care (nothing else is included), at the local small animal rescue it's 30$ with a vet check, cage, bedding, toys, food, and hay, and 50$ at the local Humane Society for a vet checked and mite treated rabbit (nothing else is included).
    It also costs around 60-100$ for altering of the rabbit. What you guys pay is decently less compared to that.
