Sulley was rescued on 24th September 2010
On Friday 24th September 2010, the Sanctuary received a telephone call about a possible abandoned pup at Portreath. Amy from the Animal Care Team here at the Sanctuary set off with cage & rescue kit and headed out. Amy found the pup near the SLSC and started an assessment on the beach, his temperature was a little high and he had a few superficial wounds and under weight, he was given fluids at the scene and then transferred to a cage for the journey back to the Sanctuary.

Back at Gweek a clinical assessment revealed he was only 3 days old and also had a scratch to his left eye, which he is now receiving a course of treatment for.
This pup has been named Sulley.

Update: 4th October 2010 - Sulley is now in hospital pen number three and doing a lot better as when the team go into the pen, he is very aggressive in his nature which is a good sign, he now needs to put on weight as he was only 13 kilos when he arrived.

Update: 4th November 2010 - Sulley is now in water and is putting on weight and at the end of last week was moved outside into nursery pool No. 3. After being in the hospital moving outside was a bit of a change more so the weather which after half an hour the heavens opened and it poured with rain. Poor Sulley was just sitting in the pouring rain looking very lost. The next day he was a lot happier swimming around in the pool and feeding well. Sulley's flipper tag number is 004 (white).
Update: 28th November 2010 - Sulley is now in the convalescent pool with Boo, Pearl, Mike, Roz and Rex.
