As we type, our advance crew (Gail, Scott and Josh) are gathering in Sequim, Washington at the Precious Life Animal Sanctuary to clear the area for the Rabbit Village with a bobcat and assess the netting requirements.
A sizeable work crew is needed next weekend — October 26/27 — save the date(s)! Another crew will be needed two weeks later for the final step.
After much consultation and research, we’ve decided the netting needs to be replaced, not repaired, and we’re working to make that happen. Rabbitats and the Richmond Auto Mall is spearheading the project hopefully with fundraising assistance from the supporters of the UVic and Seattle bunnies currently housed there.
The project is now expected to cost closer to $4000, substantially higher than our initial estimate, but the new netting will last for many years and it will be far easier to maintain than the current netting.
Thanks so much to Kit at River’s Wish for all the advice!
