We are deviating from our normal patient highlight to share our current "rehab" - well, it is a different 3 R's from our normal Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release. This is Refurbish, Renovation, Remodel.
We are very excited about our new kitchen in the medical clinic. This space is used heavily everyday. Food and formulas are prepared for a variety of diets. LOTS of dishes are washed and sanitized. The flooring was worn out. The cabinet were falling apart.
Thanks to a grant from Washington Fish and Wildlife we have been systematically replacing the flooring in the clinic. The kitchen is next and will be installed tomorrow. And Thank you to the Tulalip Tribes "Tulalip Cares" for granting us the money needed to replace our cabinets and sinks.
Our facility is not funded by the government. We are eligible for certain grants and we compete for that funding by submitting grant proposals whenever possible as appropriate. We are a non-profit charity and the primary day to day funding for our operations comes from supporters like you! It takes all of our Puget Sound community to support the rescue and rehabilitation of the wildlife we all love. Thank you for being there for the past 36 years. We look forward to 2017 Baby Season with a new kitchen!
Thank you to Scott for volunteering to install the new cabinets and saving us a lot of contractor fees. And thank you to our intern Katie for staying late and being extra hands to get this remodel done.
