Rescue Centre Adoptions

Rescue Centre Symbolic Adoptions

The Marine Mammal Rescue Centre is Canada's only dedicated marine mammal rescue facility - rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing over 150 marine mammals each year.

You can now symbolically adopt one of the Rescue Centre patients and support the work of the Rescue Centre.  Each adoption package comes with an Adoption certificate, an e-Card that can let someone know you've adopted an animal on their behalf, and a tax receipt. You will also be sent special "Pupdates" throughout the rescue season, June till September, letting you know how the pups are doing.

When you symbolically adopt one of our 2019 Marine Mammal Rescue Centre patients, you are donating $35 to support the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in distress.

"Mo" is the first Rescue Centre patient of 2019. Found inshore, struggling to swim near Hardwicke Island, Mo is a 7-month-old northern fur seal pup.
"Baked Alaska" was rescued on Gabriola Island on February 7th.
"Jessica Seal" was found on Kitsilano beach on February 18th, 2019. Less than a year old, she had been shot in the face and seriously injured by birdshot.
