Bunnies make amazing companions, but can they boost your mental health and support you emotionally? Absolutely.*
Our bunnies are specifically socialized to be emotional support animals in three ways:
No. 1 - Socialization
We work with our babies to get them used to touch from day one. It's the equivalent of ENS for puppies and works just as well. Our detailed socialization process prepares the bunnies for giving love to you, the same way you give love to them.
No. 2 - Constant Care
Our babies are around us every day, all day. We care for them in the mornings, afternoons, evenings, and all the time in between. This care is definitely reflected in the affection they have for us - they just love people and will snuggle up to you any time of day.
No. 3 - Sensing Emotions
Bunnies are super-sensitive. They hear and smell much better than people, and they've got a sweet 'sixth sense' that lets them pick up on how their human is feeling. They know when you're sad or happy, and they'll react accordingly. They might do some zoomies around the living room to celebrate your happiness, or curl up on your lap if you're having a bad day.
No. 4 - Always Being There
This might not sound like much, but when you're going through a low time in your life, your bunny doesn't just disappear. They still need cuddles, they need food, and they need a clean enclosure. Caring for your bunbun, even if you're feeling low, gives you a purpose and a reason to get up in the mornings. Your bunny is always there for you!
Overall, bunnies can make a huge difference in your life and happiness levels. They can make positive changes in mental health and act as emotional support animals. If you're looking for a bunny to be your best friend, please reach out.
