Donations

REHABILITATION & WILDLIFE CENTRES IN ONTARIO
receive no government funding.

They are completely dependent on donations from individuals and businesses.  The public not government supports wildlife rescues and rehabilitation in Ontario. Most wildlife centres operate on a shoestring budget or very tight budget.  Every donation no matter how small helps.  Financial donations are what keep most wildlife and rehabilitation centres in Ontario going.

CHARITIES

Most of the larger wildlife or rehabilitation centres in Ontario have charity licenses and can give out tax receipts.  See the list to the right hand-side and click onto their donation page.

FUND RAISING EVENTS

A lot of wildlife and rehabilitation centres have fund-raising events during the year.  From bake sales, walk-a-thons, garage sales, celebrity dinners, corn roasts, barbeques to name a few.  Check the websites of your local wildlife centres for dates and times.

CLUBS AND ASSOCIATIONS HELP

If you are a member of an Association or Club, your organization can help out by organizing a fund-raising event and donating the proceeds to a wildlife or rehabilitation centre.

Garage sales, walk-a-thons, swim-a-thons or anything-a-thon - any event where the proceeds can be donated.  Some wildlife centres have speakers that can give a presentation on what they do and usually a donation is given or a collection is taken up.  Contact your local wildlife centre to see how your Club or Association can help.

NON CASH DONATIONS

Money is not the only donation that rehabilitation and wildlife centres in Ontario can use.  Almost anything that will help with the care in raising of wild animals can be donated.

FOOD: Pet food, fruits, veggies, nuts, baby food, etc.

CLEANING SUPPLIES -  garbage bags, rubber gloves, paper towels,
detergent, bleach, mops, brooms etc.

BUILDING SUPPLIES – lumber, nails, fencing, wire mesh, extension cords,
Canadian Tire money, etc.

MEDICAL ITEMS – latex gloves, syringes, fluid pumps, lab coats, scales, etc.

OTHER ITEMS -  blankets, towels, sheets, heating pads, pet carriers, pet bowls,
newspaper, etc.

You would be amazed at what can be used.  The wish list varies from one wildlife centre to another.  Check the donation pages of the websites on the right.  If you have something that you think might be useful and it is not listed, just call a wildlife centre near you and ask
