The new site will surely be big enough. I don't see the budget needed to make it happen. Hopefully Wild Care is applying for Grants,etc. as well as asking for donations. Some of the Voting Projects perhaps? Let us know if you hear of these Jean.

Thanks for the update. So many worthy Rehabs.  :eclove

ETA: here is their wishlist

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fQY5Fap2j8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fQY5Fap2j8</a>

A tiny baby Jackrabbit is nestled in a patch of grass. His brown speckled coat blends into the bright green grass of spring, and he keeps his little ears pinned down to his shoulders to be as inconspicuous as possible. He sits completely still, just as his mother taught him.
But mom has left her baby near a construction site. Not actually in the middle of the activity, but close enough that workmen strolling the perimeter come across him.
The little hare is very young, and he's alone, so the workmen come to the logical conclusion that he is orphaned. He ends up at WildCare.

But was he really orphaned? Jackrabbits like this little baby are born precocial, meaning their eyes are open and they are able to hop almost immediately after they are born. Because of this, Jackrabbit mothers are able to leave their young alone for several hours while they forage, which means a compassionate human may find the little one, not see an adult hare, and assume he is orphaned.

Do you knit?  Wildcare is in need of knitted baby bird nests.  (As are other rehabs, no doubt.)  Here is a link to their site with the information about the nests and how to make them:

That link also has a clickable link to the knitting instructions, which are at this site:  www.wildcarebayarea.org/site/DocServer/knitted_nests2.pdf?docID=3901
