 Bingo

Bingo is a male Holland Lop who was donated to the program by a family in the community. He has been a delightful addition to the office critters. Bingo has a laid back but humorous personality. He is curious and adventurous. The first thing he did when introduced to the office is make himself at home in the lobster trap coffee table in the waiting room! This is how he earned the nickname “LOPster.”

He loves to be snuggled and enjoys racing around the office. His favorite treats are carrots, broccoli, cilantro and dark green lettuce. He is a favorite of the children who come to visit and spends many hours in their company. When staff come into the office in the morning, he greets them by standing on his hind legs and then exuberantly racing around his cage, bouncing and thumping. Bingo loves a good bunny massage and he loves to spend time with people, especially our therapist Alisha.

Rabbits are wonderful to have in sessions as they are quiet, calm and non-invasive. This is especially helpful for children with autism as they often can succumb to sensory overload. They are a great way to develop empathy in children and teach them how to cope with anxiety. Working with rabbits helps to develop calming skills, teaches respect and boundaries and enables a sense of nurturing through helping to care for them.
