Leo's come so far! He's looking better than ever in his pre-release pool.

Leo has been upgraded again, this time to one of the largest pre-release pools. He's in with the "Royals" and seems to be doing great!

Leo is doing well in his new temporary home. He's been described as a "quick eater". Good thing, too ─ it'll help him gain the weight he needs to be released.

Leo has been upgraded to a pre-release pool, and he looks amazing!
