Adorable bunnies are coming to UBC to help stressed-out students cope with life

There’s nothing like cute little bunnies to help tackle life stress – at least, that’s the theory behind an event coming to the University of British Columbia (UBC) next week.

Taking place on Monday, March 18, the “Bunny Social” comes to the AMS Nest, North Great Hall, from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Attendees are given treat cups for the rabbits, who will have the option of socializing with students or hanging out in their houses.

According to organizers these types of “meet n’ treat” sessions have “proven equally therapeutic for the mostly adoptable rabbits who quickly learn to appreciate the treats and the humans offering them.”

The ‘Bunny Social’ is courtesy of UBC PAW (Pre-Vet and Animal Welfare Club) and is open to everyone.

Entry is by donation and all the funds will be going to the Rabbitats Rescue Society – a non-profit dedicated to providing solutions to housing the large number of abandoned and feral rabbits around BC.
