grijze zeehondSeal Rescue Ireland

Geboorteseizoen grijze zeehonden in Ierland volop op dreef

Ariel was found on Morriscastle beach, Co. Wexford on 25th September 2016. Big thank you to everyone involved in finding, rescuing and transporting her to the centre – Mairead Redmond, David Saunders, Paddy Farrell and Connor Ebbs.

Ariel was admitted to the centre as she was extremely weak, lethargic and underweight and suffering from a nasty lung infection which she is still receiving medication for :( She was around 3 weeks old when found as she was moulting her lanugo coat. She has since completely lost all her baby fur to reveal a very pretty silver coat :)

Thankfully Ariel is a strong pup and keeps our interns on their toes as she is feisty and wants to bite! She hisses at us constantly which is good – she doesn’t like humans one bit and that’s the way we want her to stay! She is being introduced to fish and is taking feeds well and progressing well so far. We are hopeful she will make a speedy recovery :)

If you would like to adopt Ariel and help her through her rehabilitation please follow the link:
