Our Cause

Toronto Wildlife Centre is a wildlife hospital, rehabilitation centre, rescue team, emergency hotline, and public  education program dedicated to promoting the peaceful coexistence of people and wildlife by providing education and expert advice about wildlife situations, and providing medical care to sick, injured and orphaned wild animals with the ultimate goal of releasing healthy animals back into the wild.


Toronto Wildlife Centre’s work is made possible through the generosity of thousands of donors and hundreds of volunteers. TWC also relies on the support of like-minded organizations and foundations. Donations of much needed items, like food and cleaning supplies, help to keep costs low.


By making a donation to Toronto Wildlife Centre, you are helping to give sick, injured and orphaned animals a second chance in the wild! Donations help to buy the food, provide the medical care, and furnish the enclosures that thousands of wild animals rely on every year. Your support will also help to fund our wildlife rescue program, wildlife hospital and rehabilitation centre, and wildlife emergency hotline.

Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) is a leader in the field of wildlife rescue, veterinary care, rehabilitation and education, providing a vital and unique service in Southern Ontario. A registered charity supported primarily by donations, TWC has grown into Canada's busiest wildlife centre – since opening in 1993, tens of thousands of people have received help on TWC’s Wildlife Hotline, and over 70,000 wild animals representing over 270 different species have been admitted for care.


TWC’s work is carried out by a small group of highly skilled paid staff, and several hundred dedicated volunteers working in all areas of the centre, from wildlife care to administration.


Our current programs include:


Wildlife Hotline: Specially trained education staff respond to 30,000 calls per year on TWC’s internationally recognized wildlife hotline, advising the community about a huge diversity of wildlife situations—from natural history to wildlife conflicts to medical emergencies.


Community Education: TWC’s education program promotes healthy human-wildlife relationships through informational websites, media campaigns, presentations and workshops in schools and at local events, and through development of training tools and programs for educators.


Wildlife Rehabilitation: From admission to release, TWC’s skilled wildlife rehabilitation staff provide supportive care for 5000 animals a year representing over 270 different species from the Greater Toronto Area, including many listed as species-at-risk.


Veterinary Hospital: Providing medical care for wildlife requires skill and innovation: repairing a crushed turtle shell, diagnosing lead poisoning in a loon and suturing a laceration on a fox hit by a car is just a day in the life of TWC’s expert veterinary team.


Wildlife Rescue: Climbing trees, wading into rivers, and crawling over ice, TWC's highly skilled rescue staff carry out challenging, life-saving rescues of wildlife every day of the year.


Oil Spill Response: TWC responds to oil spills in and around Toronto communities; trained staff and volunteers provide help with rescue, transport, medical stabilization, specialized washing and recuperative care for affected wildlife.
