Bunny Besties is an all-volunteer nonprofit that addresses the heightened stress in our community.  We do it with cuddly loving bunnies and with the principles founded through studies at Mayo Clinic and our work with Boynton Health Services at the University of Minnesota.   Our rescued rabbits have a unique ability to lower stress of the humans around them and bring joyfulness to those in challenging life transitions.  We host bunny interactions ‚Äčin college and other educational settings, homeless shelters, libraries, senior living, and hospices in the greater Twin Cities area with a special focus on helping
children and young adults.
