Patient Updates

Disco was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Disco has made it into a pre-release pool! He will continue to gain weight there and work on his food competition skills.

Disco is a staff favourite. He's just a little bit cross-eyed which adds to his charm. He's just very sweet (and very quiet compared to his noisy neighbours)... and... just watch for yourself!

Guestbook for Disco

  1. Hi Disco! What a silly name. The caretakers at MMRC and VanAqua will give you lots of TLC and take good care of you. Stay strong and be brave okay? Sending you love, prayers and hope for a long healthy life. If you and Jitterbug feel better soon I bet ya’ll will have a big party with the other seals named after dances. Be strong little seal friend.
