Patient Updates

Taylor Drift was released after 211 days in our care.

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

Taylor has joined a few 'friends' in a larger pool where she's learning how to compete for fish.

She didn't play with paint! The green dye is part of an eye test. Fluorescein dye is used for pups with potential eye ulcers. The dye will adhere to any ulcers/scratches/divets etc. on the eye and staff can provide treatment based on what they see.

Taylor has been described as "feisty", and she definitely didn't like her tube-feeds at first and made that very clear. But she's gaining weight and otherwise progressing normally.

  1. So good to see her again and to see that’s she’s alright. I was her guardian at spanish banks until help arrived. She was very tired and looked hungry. Thank all of you who showed up and then returned the next morning to rescue her…you are all superstars!!
