For non-dangerous animals such as a robin or sparrow that you have determined are injured or orphaned, please follow the How To Rescue Wildlife instructions. Please do not offer any food or water unless directed by PWRC. For dangerous wildlife such as raptors, adult mammals, and large waterfowl, please contact PWRC for further instructions.
If you have found a dead animal, you can call the City of Winnipeg at 311 (or 204-986-2626) and notify them. They will usually pick up the animal within 2 hours of your phone call.
Unless the animal is obviously injuried or sick (ie depressed, cold, lethargic), we encourage you to first talk to one of our volunteer wildlife rehabilitators to make sure the animal doesn’t need to go back with its parents. The animals injured, sick or truly orphaned can be dropped off at the Pembina Emergency Veterinary Clinic, 400 Pembina Highway, which is open 24 hrs/day. Another drop off is located at the Wildbirds Unlimited Store, 45-11 Reenders Dr (in the same parking lot as the Sobey’s Grocery Store off Lagimodiere) during their business hours. We also may have closer drop off locations to you or possibly arrange pick up if we have a volunteer available. Call 204-510-1855.
