We have been busy this summer readying our new space! We first announced our new clinic area in this blog post. We are excited to share with you some photos of the space in progress and near completion!
Many thanks to all the volunteers and donors who made this happen!
Our first photo is early on, during the construction phase. We had asked for an extension wall of the restroom for a "storage area" for the washer/dryer and oversized utility tub, which were incredible in-kind donations. The utility tub is just the right size for washing raptors.
The cages are cleaned, caulked and getting placed. Thank you to Cindy Burke for her generous in-kind donation of all our current cages.
Beginning work on the movable walls!
Below is a photo of two of our dedicated volunteers, Pat and Enid. This image was taken after cutting the insulation foam boards for inside the walls. We are so grateful for their help!
(If you are interested in getting hands-on with RARE, check out our volunteer opportunities!)
The office is coming along, with the help of items that we purchased, items that were donated and also in-kind donations. A big shout-out to General Mills for the in-kind donation of our printer/scanner/copier/fax machine!
(Check out our web page - we are still looking for some items. Who knows? You may have something you'd like to get rid of that we need! We maintain a list of in-kind donation needs here.)
This is our rehabilitation and rest area for our raptors prior to going to the flight cages. In this photo, the cages are complete, with protectors installed.
Whew! We are very excited to have our new clinic up and running - we have been able to hold meetings here and have a number of raptors in-house.
In addition to the in-kind donations and the support of volunteers, we are grateful for your financial support. You can donate directly using our PayPal account, or support us by using Amazon Smile (more details HERE). Stay tuned for other opportunities in the weeks ahead!
Thank you again for your support!
-Thanks to Erin for the photos!
