Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC)

During COVID-19, and in compliance with provincial government regulations, the BC SPCA team is here to serve communities during regular hours of operation. In order to protect our staff, volunteers and members of the public, public access to our SPCA animal care centres has been significantly restricted. Wild ARC has always been closed to the public and remains so.

Please call ahead to advise staff if you will be bringing an injured, sick or orphaned wild animal to Wild ARC. We ask all visitors to wear masks when at our facility and to respect physical distancing directions in place. Staff and volunteers will continue to be on site seven days a week to care for current patients and to provide emergency treatment for those who come into our care.

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 3,128 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. However, you can get a behind-the-scenes look by attending our annual Open House.
