Guestbook for Fin Rock

  1. We’re so glad Fin Rock is in good hands. Thanks for coming to pick him up so promptly.
    We wish him all the best for a healthy recovery and eventual release into the wild!

  2. Relieved he was rescued rather than waiting to see if a mama seal had eventually returned. I’d hate for my baby to taken from me; however, in a life or death situation where it meant my child was going to live over near death, I’d want to see her have a chance to flourish. Thanks for rescuing Fin so quickly.
