We are very saddened to share that the Kawartha Wildlife Centre's fundraising campaign has ended and unfortunately, we did not reach our financial target to be able to re-open the centre for wildlife intakes.


The physical centre in Ennismore will be closing permanently and all funds raised dedicated to the reopening of the centre, along with all physical assets, will be distributed to other wildlife centres that align with our mission and values.


The work of Kawartha Wildlife Centre has been needed and inspiring, with over 3,000 patients across six years, made possible by the generosity of our volunteers, donors, and supporters. Thank you to all who helped keep Kawartha wild over the years! We will have more details to share over the coming months about our next steps as an organization. 

Please be advised that the Kawartha Wildlife Centre rehabilitation facility is currently without an Authorized Wildlife Custodian, and cannot legally accept wildlife for rehabilitative care.  The center is closed immediately and for the foreseeable future while recruitment occurs.  

The closest authorized custodians to the Peterborough area equipped
to help are: 

Shades of Hope (Pefferlaw)  705-437-4654
Soper Creek (Bowmanville)  905-442-1648
Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary (Minden) 705-286-1133
