Patient Updates

Kevinite was released after 128 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Kevinite is eating fish on her own!

So far so good! Kevinite was very dehydrated and malnourished at arrival last night. We want to see her swim as her posture looks odd, but she is hanging in there.

Guestbook for Kevinite

  1. How is she doing? We have a house on the beach where she was found. Thx fo the care you give! June

  2. @George: Kevinite was a bit shy, so we didn’t get too many pictures of her. She was released today, though!
