Wildlife

The Peterborough Humane Society does not currently have a Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. At this time, we are unable to accept wild animals into our care.

Sick and injured animals can be reported to our Animal Services department. If you have found an orphaned wild animal, please contact www.ontariowildliferescue.ca

Before removing an animal from its natural habitat, please take some time to read the information provided on the Ontario Wildlife Rescue website. Do not take a wild animal to a Rehabilitation Facility before first contacting the facility by phone. It is very common for well-meaning members of the public to mistake an animal for being in need of rehabilitation when it is better off being left in its natural environment. Our Animal Control Officer will be able to council you over the phone as to the best course of action for the animal you have found.

Thank you for caring for our diverse native wildlife. Help us to keep wild animals wild!
