You can now use PayPal to make donations.

PayPal charges us a percentage of your donation as a service fee for each transaction made through their services. It simply means if you donate $100.00, we will receive that amount minus their service fees. We ask you keep that in mind when making a donation and consider helping us to offset those fees.

We are currently awaiting approval for federal incorporation as a not for profit and for our charitable status with Revenue Canada. 


If you don't wish to use PayPal, choose one of the following options:


Send a cheque or money order payable to Niagara Wildlife Haven to

    Niagara Wildlife Haven, Treasurer

    c/o 461 Wright Street,

    Welland, ON  L3B 2K6


Use online Interac E-transfer:

If you use online banking at any bank in Canada or the US, you can quickly and easily send an Interac E-transfer directly to us.  This is an inexpensive way to make a donation and has the lowest service charges compared to all other options.  Interac E-transfers are safe, fast and reliable and your information is kept private - the transactions are handled by Interac. 


Service charges for services such as PayPal and credit card payments are extremely high, and use up a great big chunk of the total you send us. PayPal first withholds a fee just for using it and then double dips in charging us a fee to transfer what's left to our account. We don't find that particularly fair. It's money that could and would be better spent directly on the care of the wildlife.


To send an Interac e-Transfer:

Login to your online or mobile banking at your participating financial institution

  • Choose Interac e-Transfer within the Transfer/Payment menu options

  • Select a recipient by entering an email address and/or mobile phone number

  • Fill in the Interac e-Transfer information (dollar amount, account from which to withdraw the funds, a security question that only the recipient will know the answer to and optional personal message)

  • Follow the instructions to confirm the information and complete the transfer


If you haven't signed up for online or mobile banking, contact your financial institution or visit their online banking website to sign up.


Follow this link for information on how Interac E-transfer works and to see an online demo:


BE SURE TO SEND AN EMAIL FIRST TO and include the following information for the transfer:

Your full name, and mailing address,

Any message you'd like to give us,

The "answer*" to the security question that you provided for the transfer.


*Interac will ask you to devise a security question that only you know the answer to.  You will type the question into the online form.  When we receive the notice, it will ask us for the "answer". You need to email us just the "answer" or we cannot complete the transaction.  Example:  Security question if we were sending a transfer might be, "What was the first pet I ever had." The answer might be  "goldfish."  Spelling and any capitalization you used must be the same, e.g. if we answered "Gold fish" it would not accept it.


We thank you most kindly for any and all donations. Your support is the only way we can continue to provide these much needed services for wildlife. You can make a difference for one wild animal.  That's a wonderful gift to give.


With our gratitude for your kindness.
