More information about wildlife rehabilitation and those who dedicate their lives to the welfare of abused, and abandoned domestic animals. (Links below will open in a new window)

Niagara Wildlife Haven supports humane wildlife removal companies.

We  also believe that the wildlife removal industry needs regulations. 

This company is endeavouring to facilitate this through the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. 

Please put your support behind this to ensure that your voice is heard.

OWREN (Ontario Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Network)


OWREN offers courses and conferences for those interested in becoming authorized wildlife custodians or those who work with wildlife and would like to learn more.  An individual wildlife rehabilitation facility can provide training, but it isn't as thorough as the training you get with OWREN. 



SPCA's or Humane Societies in the area


NOTE:  SPCA/Humane Societies are mandated under the Ontario SPCA Act to act to relieve suffering or distress for all animals (wild or domestic).  That means in plain English, that if you have found an INJURED wild animal, the humane society MUST, under the law, respond to the call.  They may attempt to tell you that they don't "do" wildlife, and in effect they are telling you that they won't make the effort to bring the injured animal to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for care and they will just euthanize it once they bring it back to the shelter.  You can follow up and ensure they take it to a wildlife rehabilitator to be assessed.  They do NOT have the training to determine if a wild animal can be helped or not.  If you make a donation for the care of the wild animal - ensure that donation (along with the injured animal) gets to the wildlife rehabilitator who will be paying for that care out of his or her own pocket.

Please VISIT OUR FRIENDS and support them too!

The following people, services, and businesses have gone out of their way to assist us, show them you appreciate their help!!

Environmental Pest Management

Wild animals don't always behave as they should (and neither do human beings). If you've done all you can to deter wild animals from moving into your space and need help in managing problem situations, we highly recommend this company for their humane practices in dealing with nuisance wildlife issues.  If you have pets, feed the birds outside, or have stores of animal food or birdseed around, you are risk inviting infestations from other insects and pests - mice, rats, meal moths, etc.,) things that can carry significant health and safety risks and that you should not be sharing your living space with.
