Patient Updates

Gillbert Brown was released after 50 days in our care.

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

Gillbert is on his own now, but he's looking great and seems not to mind. He'll be in a larger pool with new 'friends' once he has mastered fish school.

Gillbert and his buddy Frank have been inseparable since they arrived at the rescue centre. It's rare to catch them both looking at the camera, so we just had to share this snapshot.
