Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan

Gone Wild for Wildlife is WRSOS’ annual educational fundraiser.  The event is held in October with the next event being held on October 25, 2014 at Prairieland Park, hall A, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The event consists of live wildlife displays, educational booths, trade show booths, fun and informative lectures, a silent auction fundraiser and children’s activities such as face painting, juggling school, owl pellet dissections, and much more.
The events goals are to raise awareness and knowledge about wildlife and nature preservation, protection and rehabilitation in Saskatchewan.  The event is also a fundraiser for the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan.  All proceeds raised from Gone Wild for Wildlife help WRSOS maintain the hotline, provide rescue and transportation to injured wildlife and pay for veterinarian care for injured wildlife.

Need help? Call our hotline at (306)242-7177 

Please call our hotline and leave a detailed message and a volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible. Our hotline is monitored by volunteers from 9am-9pm daily. We aim to return all calls within an hour, sooner for emergencies.  During Spring and Summer we often receive a large call volume, so calls are prioritized and it may be slightly longer of a wait.

Until then you can visit our “What if I Find” page for some helpful information.

Thank you for your patience.

About us: 

Established in 2006, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan is a volunteer driven, registered non-profit organization that works in partnership with organizations and businesses throughout Saskatchewan who share common principals and values of maintaining healthy biodiversity

The WRSOS provides education and information as well as partners with similar organizations to coordinate training opportunities.

WRSOS’ primary goals are: 

  • To prevent the unnecessary removal from the wild of wildlife
  • To provide rescue and transportation to qualified care of those that do need help
  • To ensure the return to the wild of rescued and rehabilitated wildlife
  • To prevent accidental injury or illness to callers or wildlife
  • To provide information and education to the public about wildlife, wildlife issues, and wildlife rehabilitation in Saskatchewan.

WRSOS first line of defence is our emergency hotline.  This phone line is manned 12 hours/day, 365 days/year.  With the exception of one paid summer student to man the hotline, it is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.  The hotline gives the public an avenue they can take when they find an injured or orphaned animal or when they have questions or need advice regarding wildlife issues.  The dramatic increase in calls – from 177 in 2006 to almost 2000 in 2013 – only highlights the important need for an organization like WRSOS.

WRSOS has 70 volunteers and one paid summer employee on the emergency hotline.  There are 20 vet clinics province wide that volunteer their services free or at a reduced rate and 20 provincially licensed wildlife rehabilitators from Moose Mountain to Meadow Lake.

Saskatchewan’s provincially licenced rehabilitators can take a wide range of animals. From hawks, falcons, waterfowl and songbirds to bats, skunks, foxes, black bears and everything in between.

As an organization, WRSOS supports the view that human society and wildlife can successfully coexist.  WRSOS aims to promote respect and understanding for wildlife and nature through education at events such Gone Wild for Wildlife.
