A Word About the OWREN Directory Listings
*NOTE: The vast majority of wildlife custodians and rehabilitation centres in Ontario
are not paid for the work they do or the services they provide in their own communities.
They depend on community donations, and their own fundraising efforts.
Shortfalls are often funded by the custodian’s own personal income
to maintain the ability to provide care for these animals.
If you want to help, please support the independent wildlife custodian
or rehabilitation centre in your area.
NO individual rehabilitator or wildlife rehabilitation centre has unlimited resources
(caging, manpower, funding, etc.) necessary to responsibly and effectively
care for all the wildlife that may be presented to them.
Thus, a listing in this directory should not be taken to imply that an individual or a centre,
can, or will, accept ALL wildlife brought to them, at ALL times.
(Some custodians may only have the knowledge or resources to effectively
care for the species or age groups listed beside their names).
Please be aware of these limitations when contacting these individuals or centres
(or when referring them to members of the public) and whenever possible,
please contact the individual or facility directly by telephone and make arrangements,
in advance, before you deliver wildlife to them.
In order to maintain their authorizations, Ontario's Wildlife Custodians are obliged
to abide by a set of conditions established by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources
(with respect to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act).
These conditions relate to the various aspects of wildlife rehabilitation
(record keeping, release, etc.)
