About Wildlife Rescue Association of BC


5216 Glencarin Drive, Burnaby, BC V5B 3C1, CA

Mission Statement

To provide leadership in rehabilitating wildlife and in promoting the welfare of wild animals in the urban environment.


Wildlife Rescue Association was established in 1979 to rehabilitate wildlife affected by human activity and provide education to the public on co-existing with urban wildlife. Before Wildlife Rescue was founded, there was no rehabilitation service for wildlife in Metro Vancouver and members of the public had nowhere to turn when they found an animal in distress. Thanks to the determination of a small band of volunteers, a small rehabilitation centre was established at the Nature House on the north side of Burnaby Lake.

Today, Wildlife Rescue runs its wildlife hospital on the south shore of Burnaby Lake where it treats animals from around the province of BC. Since 1979 we have treated more than 100,000 animals. Metro Vancouver is developing rapidly and animals living in the urban environment face many challenges such as busy roads, loss of habitat, pollution, pet predation, poisoning, unsecured garbage and direct human cruelty. With a team of professional wildlife rehabilitators and an army of volunteers we are able to provide temporary refuge to a diverse range of animals. We are not a wildlife sanctuary and once the animals in our care are healthy and ready to live in the wild, we release them back to their natural habitat.

Our public education and outreach includes a wildlife helpline, as well as presentations and displays throughout Greater Vancouver. 80% of our funds come through donations and without support from the public, local business and the wider community, none of the work we do would be possible.
