2nd Annual “Deals For Seals” Yard Sale Fundraiser


Yard Sale Flyer 2013-09-28It has been one year since the National Marine Life Center opened the doors of it’s new hospital to seal patients. Since then we have taken in nine sick and injured seals (and 8 Kemp’s ridley Sea Turtles). We have been able to provide care for these animals thanks to you! Feeding, cleaning up after, and supporting the medical care of our fuzzy friends can get a bit expensive.

The National Marine Life Center will be Hosting the 2nd annual “Deals for Seals” Community Yard Sale to help raise money for seal rehabilitation. Here are the details and there are several ways you can help!
