Open for Spring 2022 Wildlife Season

  • If an animal is in immediate danger or is suffering, please call the City of Ottawa Bylaw at 311 for rescue or pick-up. You can also bring injured wildlife to the Ottawa Humane Society, Lost and Found door, 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Call first at 613-725-3166, ext 223 to let them know you will be arriving, and see their website for directions and operating hours. 

  • In the event that HHWR has reached capacity, we will direct you to Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, a large rehab centre located just south of Ottawa in North Gower, working with wild mammals and reptiles (including turtles).

  • Regretfully, our permit with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources prohibits us from taking in animals from Quebec. Here are some Quebec wildlife contacts which we hope can help you:
