Patient Updates

Scuba Gooding Jr. was released after 71 days in our care.

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

Scuba is now in one of the largest pre-release pools.

Scuba has made it into a pre-release pool where he seems to be enjoying around-the-clock access to water. He's also figuring out how to compete for fish with other pups, and that's also going well for him.

Scuba is progressing normally. He's still being fed a milk formula 5 times a day and is gaining weight.
