Patient Updates

Cariboo was released after 87 days in our care.

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

Cariboo has been upgraded to a larger pre-release pool! And it looks like she's doing well in it...

Cariboo has calmed down a lot since she was rescued. She used to be quite a "bitey" girl, but now she seems to have accepted the pleasures provided by the rescue centre (free food!), and she eats in a much more well-mannered way. Well, she's in a pool now... we guess that all goes overboard now that it's all a competition.
