2017 Patient of the Year Nominee

Guadalupe fur seal pup Rudy Miramontes was close to death when she was rescued in very poor body condition.

You'd think a starving animal like that would be eager to eat, but Rudy was very stubborn”a trait typical of fur seals like her”and she refused to go after the fish tossed to her each day.

Our dedicated animal care experts ensured Rudy got the nutrition she needed through special tube feedings multiple times a day. Once Rudy finally ate fish on her own and had regained her strength, she was given a clean bill of health.

Rudy was released back to the wild with a second chance at life and the hope that she may one day help grow the population of this threatened species with a pup of her own.

Rudy's story is so inspiring and memorable that she was nominated as a 2017 Patient of the Year. Show your support for patients like Rudy by adopting her today.
