Wild Care Friends

Wild Care has received over 210 rabbits this year. Nearly double the number of rabbits received in 2018. Most of these rabbits are orphans that have been brought to us due to cats and dogs getting into their nests, landscapers, and people who unintentionally have run over a rabbit nest with their lawnmower...

Rabbits are an incredibly delicate species to rehabilitate. They have sensitive gastrointestinal systems, and require specialized handling, care and nutrition.

Rabbits that are injured or are weanlings, are kept at Wild Care where they are provided with medication, nutrition, and care, until release.

Orphaned rabbits that are brought to us with their eyes still closed, are in need of even more intensive care. These rabbits go home with Kristine Beebe. Kristine is a licensed MA Wildlife Rehabilitator who has specialized in the care of orphaned rabbits in her home, for over 24 years.

Wild Care supports Kristine during the spring and summer seasons by providing her with rabbit supplies, and reimbursements for supplies. In a "normal" season, Kristine will rehabilitate 50-75 rabbits.This year, Kristine has rehabilitated over 90 orphaned rabbits.

We need your help...

Kristine Beebe, the Cape Cod Rabbit Whisperer, nurses one of her numerous cottontail babies.
In a "normal" rabbit season, costs to care for 50 rabbits include:

$150 – Glass Aquarium Habitats
$  20 – Rabbit Nipples (hand-feeding)
$  30  - Seasonal Hay
$ 250 - Organic Leafy Vegetables
$  96  - Ingredients for Homemade Hand-Feeding Formula

A total of $546 in expenses.

Kristine has already provided care for over 90 orphans this season!!!

About Wild Care 
Since 1994, Wild Care has treated injured, ill and orphaned native wildlife for release back into the wild capable of independent survival, prevented wildlife casualties through public education and counseling, and engaged the community in conservation services through volunteerism. Wild Care does not charge the public for our services. We accept wildlife regardless of a rescuer's ability to make a donation; and we never compromise quality of care or the dignity of an animal's life for fundraising purposes.
