Thursday marks 15 years since Tampa Bay's famous dolphin "Winter" was rescued.

She was saved back in 2005 after being getting caught in a crab trap. Now she's widely known for her prosthetic tail.

To celebrate her rescue anniversary, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is hosting a "Rescue Days" event to bring awareness to finding forever homes for both pets and kids in need.

It runs from Dec .10 at 10 a.m. to Dec. 12 at 6 p.m.

  • Watch as our Animal Care Team dives with banners celebrating the event at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. daily
  • Learn more about Gulf Coast JFCS Heart Gallery of Pinellas & Pasco Program and SPCA Tampa Bay by visiting their information table open daily
  • Meet with adorable, adoptable dogs from the SPCA Tampa Bay from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12

All of the activities above are included with Admission!
