Reporting Sick / Injured Wildlife
If you have found sick/injured wildlife please contact Animal Services at 519-623-7722 and follow the prompts. A CDHS Team Member will gather information and provide you with assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You are encouraged to leave a message.
If the animal requires on site assessment, the CDHS Team member will confer with licensed wildlife rehabilitators for the best course of action. If the wildlife is a candidate for rehabilitation the CDHS Team Member will coordinate with volunteer drivers for transport.
We are partnered with numerous Wildlife Rehabilitators and strive for the best outcome when dealing with sick/injured wildlife. If you have questions pertaining to wildlife and prefer to speak with a Rehabilitator authorized by the Ministry of Natural Resources please click here
In the unfortunate circumstance the wildlife is not a viable candidate for rehabilitation due to inability to recover from illness, injury or there is no licensed rehabilitator available, the animal will be humanely euthanized.
