We Are Open to Accept Wildlife in Need

Share

No day is ever the same in wildlife rehabilitation, without any notice we can receive a wave of new animals in need of care, something that suddenly needs to be repaired, the list goes on!

This last week has definitely put our experience in managing difficult situations to good use. With your support, we are still committed to living out our mission and providing care to animals in need.

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. We know this is a tough time for everyone, but if you have anything to spare, we would greatly appreciate a donation to keep our operations going. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Holly Lillie
Executive Director
