Patient Updates

Salsa was released after 70 days in our care.

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

Salsa is doing great and has the loudest voice in his entire pool! He loves to yell and tell you all about his day.

That was fast! Salsa is already in a pre-release pool. Here, he'll be working on his food competition skills and continue to gain weight.

Guestbook for Salsa

  1. Hi Salsa- Not sure if you are named after a yummy Mexican dip or a ballroom dance. Regardless, i bet you are a real cutie. Be strong and be brave while they take care of you at MMRC. They will give you lots of TLC. Take care and hope you get well soon. Love you!
