Ontario Wildlife Rehabilitation

and Education Network



OWREN was founded in 1990 to support and inform professional

wildlife rehabilitators in the province of Ontario.


If you are a wildlife rehabilitator or are interested in becoming authorized

so that you can work on your own or perhaps just work as a volunteer

with an existing facility, then you've come to the right place!  We can help!


We are an information and education network that produces and

distributes educational materials, and provides training opportunities

and a yearly conference for rehabilitators and others in related professions.


Select a navigation button from the menu on the left and discover

what wildlife rehabilitation is and what we are about.

We hope you enjoy your visit!


Bookmark our site and check back often for new information!



We invite you to learn about OWREN, and the valuable services

voluntarily provided by Authorized Wildlife Custodians, their

registered Foster Care Providers and facility volunteers

for native Ontario wildlife, and for the public.


Join us and be part of a network of wildlife rehabilitation professionals!

OWREN's Mission


To facilitate and achieve excellence in the profession of

wildlife rehabilitation by sharing and expanding our

knowledge to continually improve the quality of care

for our native species.





OWREN does not provide 'how-to-rehabilitate' information nor diagnose the condition

of any sick, injured, or orphaned wild animals or individual problems with wild animals through email. 

We are unable to respond to such requests. 

OWREN is not a wildlife rehabilitation centre nor does it operate one.


If you cannot locate an Authorized Wildlife Custodian near you and have an emergency situation

with an injured wild animal, please contact your local SPCA, humane society, animal control, veterinarian, or vet emergency clinic for immediate assistance.
