Contact Us

We are open to care for wildlife in need. If you have found injured, orphaned, or oiled wildlife please call us directly at 403-946-2361.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented new methods for admitting animals:

  • Please call our Wildlife Hotline at 403-946-2361 if you have questions or concerns regarding an injured or orphaned animal.
  • If an animal needs to come into care, we ask that you drop the animal off at our facility. Please ensure you have called us first. If the animal needs to be dropped off at a partnering veterinary hospital, we will give you instructions for this situation.
  • When arriving at our facility, we ask that you please remain in your car and call our hotline (403-946-2361) to let us know you’ve arrived. A staff member will come outside to take the animal from you. Please ensure the animal is in a container you no longer need.

Our Wildlife Hotline is open every day from 9am to 5pm. If we are unable to answer, please leave a message and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and kindness during this time. We could not do this without you, and so appreciate your support.
