The Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society was established in 1993 to provide professional care for wildlife rehabilitation. Each year we receive 2600+ injured and orphaned wild animals and respond to 10,000+ wildlife-related calls from the public. In addition, Calgary Wildlife provides motivational, skill-building experiences for volunteers and valuable outreach and education services in the community. Calgary Wildlife is a registered charity and the only wildlife hospital within the City of Calgary. Calgary Wildlife supports positive wildlife outcomes for Calgarians and Calgary’s wildlife

Calgary Wildlife receives mostly urban wildlife. With over 400 species of wild animals living in and around the City of Calgary, there is a great variety in the patients that we see! Calgary’s blend of urban and natural landscapes is home to a diversity of wildlife. As city limits expand, human activity increasingly encroaches upon wildlife habitats. We now share our communities with wildlife and encounter them around our homes, backyards and parks. A large portion of the wildlife received by Calgary Wildlife have been injured as a result of some contact with humans or human activity. We give injured or orphaned wild animals a second chance at life.
