BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, please read the info on our website. RVWS is swamped because of COVID safety measures and many problems can be solved or avoided without our help.

Follow the links on the left to find instructions on the age and species you need help with.

We are also finding hard to keep up with phone calls so if you still need help, please send a detailed email to info at with your phone number and photo of the animal.

For birds, contact the Wild Bird Care Centre at 613-854-2849.

Please remember that wild animals need specialized care and medical treatment that only a licensed wildlife rehabilitator can provide. In Ontario, it is illegal for the general public to care for wildlife.
