Patient Updates

Rocky was released after 65 days in our care.

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

Rocky has been moved to a pre release pool and is gaining weight steadily.

Rocky lives up to his name and will rock and roll all over the place while being fed. Luckily for his care takers he is now in fish school which he enjoys much more than formula!

Guestbook for Rocky

  1. Hope you are progressing well Rocky! You are in very caring and good hands!!! Praying for you everyday!

    Lots of Love and a Hug,

  2. We were the ones who helped rescue Rocky from Whaling Station Bay on Hornby Island. We watched over him for almost two days before it was apparent that no one was coming to get him again. The whole family is so happy to see him doing well and hope to see his little head bobbing up in the bay as he fishes with the river seals.

  3. Hello Rocky! With a name like that, you can rock backdoor to recovery! You are a cuttie and loved. Prayers for you sweet boy…xoxoxo
