Guestbook for Harlow

  1. Hi tiny Harrow- I’m sending you happy, healthy thoughts. The MMRC have rescued you so you are a lucky little pup. They will give you the best care so stay strong while they do so. Take care precious little seal pup, Harrow. Be well!

  2. I am so pleased to know that Harlow is doing well!
    As the person who spotted her and kept an eye on her for three days, I am so happy to know she is safe, being well cared for, and learning how to catch her own meals 😊
    Thank you MMR for all you do.

  3. Looks like you are doing super duper Harlow. Good job, I am proud of you. You were a tiny seal pup so way to go for making it to fish school. Keep eating lots and lots of fish so you grow bigger and stronger every day. Then you will gain weight and be able to venture back into the ocean to have fun adventures that are waiting for you.
