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 9:00am-9:00pm 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 “Wildlife 911” section for some helpful information.
WRSOS' primary goals are:
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.
