Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Harbor Seals in Puget Sound give birth to their pups in July and August each year, which is when orphaned/separated or injured pups arrive at Wolf Hollow for care. Three pups are currently in recovery.

Button followed kayakers in and out of the water on a busy public beach near Friday Harbor for several hours before the local Marine Mammal Stranding Network picked her up and brought her to Wolf Hollow. She was only about one day old and was exhausted and dehydrated when she arrived. As she recovered, she became active and wriggly.

Enoki was found in bad shape near a local marina. He had infected wounds, was emaciated, dehydrated, and experiencing hypoglycemic seizures. Wolf Hollow provided treatment quickly, and he improved gradually over a few days.

Crimini was very fragile, lethargic, emaciated, dehydrated, weak, and cold to the touch when she was brought to Wolf Hollow. Initial treatment helped to perk her up enough to start vocalizing.

All three pups are doing well and will remain at Wolf Hollow while they gain weight and learn to eat fish.

ReSurge International 

ReSurge is a global humanitarian organization providing free reconstructive surgeries to adults and children in 19-low-income countries. Their model is 3-fold 1. Provide free direct care to patients such as wound coverage, cleft and palate repair, hand extremity trauma care, and burn and cancer reconstruction. 2. Provide mentoring and training to early-career local medical professionals via in-person and virtual training. They’ve measured the impact of this training and found that by training just one surgeon in a low-income country, an average of 9,000 patients will gain access to surgical care. Over their lifetimes, these surgeons will train dozens of others—resulting in a multiplier effect and a multigenerational approach towards long-term sustainability. 3. ReSurge also funds dedicated in-country local surgeons who perform these life-changing surgeries when our teams are not there.

Bright Spot Network

"The Bright Spot Network has created a needed space for parents with cancer to receive compassionate and meaningful support. Having cancer while raising small children comes with very unique challenges, that often are not addressed. Bright Spot not only names these challenges, but also provides concrete support that addresses day-to-day struggles. Many of my patients have shared that Bright Spot is the first place they turned where they really felt understood and did not need to explain themselves. I am so grateful for Bright Spot and will continue to share information about this amazing program with patients and colleagues.”
