A Special Message from Johanna Mejia-Fava, DVM, PhD
Whales & Dolphins need our help... and we need yours.

Animal Necessity is helping to raise funds for Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Responder (DPMMR) and to spread the word of this amazing Fundraiser to help marine mammals in South Florida. Start in a positive manner by helping this worthy charitable cause.

DPMMR is the only rescue organization for whales and dolphins in the Florida keys. DPMMR is seeking your help to raise funds to build a long term rehabilitation center and marine teaching hospital. Currently, the Florida Keys lacks this vital long term, rehab and rescue center and animals are dying as a result. Researchers, veterinarians, and students from all over the world will have an opportunity to learn, engage, and become the next generation to protect our endangered marine environment.

DPMMR is also the home of seven Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and their mission is to connect thousands of environmental stewards to our ambassador dolphins so that they can learn to protect their wild counter parts. DPMMR does this via educational programs, promoting understanding of marine mammals through scientific investigation, and providing excellent animal husbandry and preventative medical care.

Animal Necessity and DPMMR's longitudinal nutritional and supplement research provides leading edge information, allowing for better care for their con-specifics that strand from the wild. DPMMR is the only rescue organization for whales and dolphins in the Florida keys.
