As a volunteer powered charitable organization,
we do not have the means or resources for pick ups or field rescues.
We must rely on finders bringing animals in need of care to our facility.
Please do not bring animals to the centre without first confirming an intake time with a wildlife volunteer.

For information about Ontario’s 8 native turtle species and how to help them, visit the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre.
Although Rock Pigeons are quite successful and prolific in many parts of North America, they are not a native species and are actually all descendants of domesticated racing or utility birds. Most Pigeons are ferrel with no owners, but if you have spotted a pigeon in distress with a band on its leg, you will need to contact the owner using the band number. Please visit the Canadian Racing Pigeon Union for more information.
Prevent and report encounters and learn who to contact.
Respect the cycle
Native wild species of predators and prey are integral parts of the food chain and we must never confuse compassion with interference. We must never attempt to interfere with the natural course of events or impede a hunt in the name of a rescue.

Time is critical with any injury or illness; delays in treatment can complicate injuries and lessen the likelihood of recovery. Bird bones start healing after just a few days, untreated pain and inflammation can lead to permanent damage. Wild animals are more robust than many domesticated species and can suffer with life threatening conditions for days or even weeks without assistance or intervention. Authorized Wildlife Custodians are equipped and skilled to help elevate and prevent prolonged suffering.
For species KWC is not authorized or equipped to accept (RVS), please contact the closest facility near you for guidance.
