Patient Updates

Munchies was released after 69 days in our care.

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

Munchies is so close to being released! She just needs to gain a little more weight and then she will be headed back to the ocean.

Munchies really, REALLY likes to talk.

Munchies is one of the most vocal patients on site. She can be heard from all over the rescue as she is demanding... er... lunch & dinner at once?!

Guestbook for Munchies

  1. Hi there cute Miss Munchie Munch. You have been at MMRC so I know they are taking great care of you. They are feeding you a yummy milk formula so drink up! You look like an innocent little muffin in your picture but you are missing a big smile. I hope the next time I check on you they post a new pic with a big smile on your face and full belly. Be brave and stay strong. Love you!
