Patient Updates

Moose was released after 145 days in our care.

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

Moose is one of the largest pups in his pool... he's done a good job gaining weight!

Moose really seems to be enjoying pool life. We caught him just as he was exiting the water after a swim ─ and he went right back in.

Moose has gained quite a bit of weight and is progressing normally.
