Patient Updates

Jerry was released after 121 days in our care.

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

Jerry has temporarily moved into a smaller pool to treat an eye injury. He is making progress, and eating as much fish as his heart could desire. He is a staff favourite because he is so easy to recognize in his pool!

Jerry has been upgraded to a comfy pre-release pool with lots of new friends!

Jerry has mastered fish school and is enjoying pool life!

Guestbook for Jerry

  1. Jerry- Sending you prayers and love from Texas. I hope you get well soon and grow stronger and stronger with the help of the amazing caregivers at MMRC. You look soft and cuddly and your whiskers are nice and pronounced. Be good sweet harbour seal Jerry.

  2. Mr. Jerry- I bet your eye injury is much better by now and you’ve grown even bigger and stronger. It says you’ve been eating all the fishes you can catch so that is terrific news. Keep up the good work and you will be back in the ocean exploring and having adventures very soon.
