The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry

maintains an official online list of

Authorized Wildlife Custodians in Ontario!

To view the list and maps, CLICK HERE 


Please note - you may find other 'listings' of wildlife rehabilitators in Ontario, however,

neither the MNRF nor OWREN can verify if those listed are

indeed authorized wildlife custodians. 

The only accurate list is the one the MNRF publishes. 

Before you take a wild animal to anyone listed on any other website,

contact your district MNRF office to verify

if they are authorized to accept those animals. 


Note also that Foster Care givers must be registered with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry

and be working under the direct supervision of someone who is authorized by the MNRF. 

Foster Care givers by law, are not allowed to directly admit wildlife into care

and bypass the wildlife custodian under whom they work. 

All wild animals must be seen by the authorized wildlife custodian first,

before being sent to a foster care giver.

All registered foster care givers must have a copy of the custodian's authorization on their premises

and a copy of a signed agreement with the MNRF on display at their location as well. 

If the person to whom you are taking a wild animal does not have these documents

they are not registered and should not be accepting wildlife into care. 


These laws are for the protection of our native wildlife,

and for the protection of public health and safety.. 

Please help keep our native wildlife safe and well cared for.
