SealPupsEvery dollar of your tax-deductible gift goes to the Marine Mammal Care Center at Fort MacArthur (MMCC). Your contribution will provide operating expenses to help sick and injured pinnipeds (seals and sea lions) and return them back to their natural environment.

MMCC is Los Angeles County’s only rehabilitation hospital for pinnipeds, and it is financially dependent upon generous donations from individuals like yourself.

Online donations are collected and disbursed to MMCC by MAR³INE, a non-profit 501(c)(3) partner organization which sponsors this website.

You can also send a check directly to MMCC, payable to Marine Mammal Care Center, and mail it to: 3601 South Gaffey Street San Pedro, CA 90731.

To become a MAR³INE member and receive benefits, such as the quarterly Sea Dog Newsletter, monthly email updates, invites to special events, and a 10% discount in the Gift Shop, please click here.
