PICS: Can You Help This Adorable Abandoned Seal Pup In Sligo?


Try not to let your eyes fill with tears at the sight of the fluffiest, cutest, most perfect little seal cub you’ve ever seen (it’s hard, we know), but read on.

Seal Rescue Ireland, a wonderful organisation that helps to rescue and rehabilitate seals across Ireland, has shared the news that their latest little pup, Tiny Ron, needs some help.

Ron was orphaned by his mother at only one day old after being prematurely born in Strand Hill, Sligo. He was rescued by Seal Rescue Ireland, but arrived to them dehydrated and malnourished at a tiny, worrying 8kg!

They are now calling on the public to help donate for Ron’s care, and have estimated his full rehabiliation process to cost €3,000.

His flippery future is looking bright thanks to these guys, so they don’t want to let the little fella down now.

Just LOOK at Ron after his bath…

They said on a Go Fund Me page set up for Ron: “We are the only rehabilitation facility in the Republic of Ireland and rely solely on the generous donations from caring members of the public like yourselves to continue to rehabilitate seals like Ron. 

“Please dig deep to help us return him to his ocean home!”
