COMMACK: The votes are in and tallied for the Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center’s bunny naming contest. As a result of a social media contest, Gurwin residents revealed today the new name of their adopted pet therapy bunny, now known as Nelly Furwin.
In the few short weeks he’s been at Gurwin, Nelly has endeared himself to both staff and residents alike. “Spending time snuggling and stroking his soft fur provides a source of comfort and happiness and induces a sense of nurturing,” said Dawn Lettau, director of therapeutic recreation at Gurwin. “A daily dose of Nelly is the ideal prescription to improve overall mood. Thank you to all who participated in our contest to help give our furry friend the perfect name!”
