COVID-19 UPDATE: In order to protect our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary for us to significantly restrict public access to our SPCA shelters. Wild ARC has always been closed to the public and will remain so.
Please call ahead to advise staff if you will be bringing in an injured or orphaned wild animal. Staff and volunteers will continue to be on site caring for current patients and to provide emergency treatment for those who come into our care seven days a week. COVID-19 update

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 2,816 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.
