Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in Alberta
While the Alberta SPCA helps domestic animals and wildlife kept in captivity, we want to ensure all animals are treated humanely in our province. In order to help wildlife in distress, we've compiled some helpful information and contact details below.
Unless a wild animal is in immediate danger, it is usually best to leave it alone. To get specific information, call the Wildlife Help Line at 1-888-924-2444 or check our listing below of wildlife rehabilitation centres for the one nearest you.
That baby jack rabbit or fawn may not be orphaned, so it's usually best to leave the animal where it is. Mother deer and hares often leave their young on their own so their scent doesn't attract predators. If the young animal appears sick or injured, or is in an unsafe location, check the Alberta Wildlife Rehabilitators' Association website for more information, call the Wildlife Help Line at 1-888-924-2444 or check with the wildlife rehabilitation centre nearest you:
