The Kawartha Wildlife Centre (KWC), founded in 2017, is a volunteer-run, charitable wildlife rehabilitation organization located in the heart of the Kawarthas. Our mission is to rehabilitate and release sick, orphaned and injured wildlife, and to provide education throughout Peterborough and the Kawarthas on ways we can support wildlife species through conservation, awareness, and co-existence.

There is no government funding for wildlife rehabilitation in the province of Ontario, so all of our bills, treatment, medication, and food are paid for by donations received from the public and our community. Every single dollar donated and raised goes towards supporting the rehabilitation of injured wildlife, preventative educational efforts, and in support of the mission of KWC.

And that’s where you come in! As we continue to grow and care for sick, orphaned, and injured wildlife patients, we need your help. This package outlines ways that you can offer your support, so KWC can continue to care for wildlife in need.
