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, check the list below for the wildlife rehabilitation centre nearest you.
That baby jackrabbit 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 predator. If the young animal appears sick or injured, or if it is in an unsafe location, ask someone at a wildlife rehabilitation centre what to do.
