WILDLIFE REHABILITATION FACILITY

How can you help?

Many people don't know that wildlife rehabilitation facilities are NOT government funded (either provincially or federally) and any work done is at NO COST to the government. Alberta is not obligated to rescue or pay for the rescue of injured or orphaned willdife, OR wildlife in difficult situations because it is not within the government's mandate. Help us advocate for our patients!
