This is an ever-evolving list. If you know of any changes or corrections to the wildlife centers below or know of one we can add to this list (including individuals licensed to care for injured and/or orphaned wildlife), please let us know by email. Thank you!

Important: If possible, always call before bringing an animal to one of the clinics listed below. If a clinic is full or understaffed, they may be able to direct you to another.

For the purpose of this list, British Columbia has been divided two zones: North/Central and South. From there, each area is divided into regional districts. Not all areas will have wildlife rehabilitators listed. (Again, if you know of one, please let us know.)

For more information, or if a wildlife rescuer/rehabilitator is not listed in your area, call BC SPCA’s Provincial Cruelty and Wildlife hotline at 1-855-6BC-SPCA (1-855-622-7722).
