Patient Updates

Porpoise was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Porpoise is a very difficult patient to handle. She bites! Porpoise is very lively and seems eager to move to the next stage in rehab. She is currently finishing fish school and working towards gaining enough weight and eating independence to be moved to a pool.
