Patient Updates

Paul McCarpney was released after 52 days in our care.

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

Paul was a bit of a scrawny pup when he first arrived, always lounging under his heat lamp while in the comfort area. He has gained some weight since, though, and now can handle the weather like a any seal pup.
