Patient Updates

Jools was released after 90 days in our care.

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

Jools may have set the MMR record for longest time spent learning how to eat. However after over a month of practice Jools now is able to eat all on his own! Soon he will be moved to a pool where he can practice competing with one or two other seals. Good job Jools!

Poor Jools! He's so big already & currently housed in the biggest tub we have. But he can't move in to a pool yet, because he still hasn't figured out how to eat fish on his own. Hopefully he'll catch up soon!

Guestbook for Jools

  1. Sweet Jools! I tried to “adopt” you but it seems there are no more adoptions! I’ll adopt you in my heart! Wishing you the best and hope you continue to flourish, grow and get strong! Love you! xoxoxo

  2. Hi Jools- I meant to leave you a message when I saw you a couple weeks ago but happy to see you are doing well. I love one of the pics they posted for you of just your eyes peeking out from the side of the tub. I bet you are a cutie patootie! The update says you are in fish school so that is terrific news. Keep up the good work so you can grow bigger and stronger every day. Sending you lots of love, prayers and healing thoughts. Be well Mr. Jools!

  3. Hot dog, Jools! I am so proud of you. You have done a great job eating your fishes you have grown super duper big and strong. I hope by now you’ve made your way into a pool and are doing well in fish school. Keep up the good work you are doing great!!!
