Welcome to BC SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC). We are open 365 days a year to help sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals. Wild ARC is the only wildlife rehabilitation centre on southern Vancouver Island. We treated 2,459 animals last year from all over the region, helping them recover and return to the wild.

To ensure the best care for our wild patients, our facility is not open for public tours.
