Patient Updates

Sushi was released after 106 days in our care.

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

Sushi has gotten so big! She is recovering from some minor eye issues and will soon be getting ready for release!

Sushi had eye surgery today! She's recovering well, though and should be back on her feet/flippers very soon.

Sushi was almost a candidate for the first release of the season, but she wasn't quite heavy enough to make the cut. She'll probably be released very soon, though.

Sushi is looking good in her little training pool...

Sushi is not only our first female pup of the year but she is also the smallest! She immediately became a staff favourite with her bold attitude.
