Welcome to the Wild at Heart Wildlife Refuge Centre!

2016 Wild at Heart calendars are now available! We sell our calendars at variety of different locations throughout the community. Check out our shop to purchase them online and to see a list of retail locations carrying the calendar.

All proceeds support our centre.


November 20 – Ella visited the Ontario Veterinary College last week to have her cast changed. She broke her leg in September while playing in her pen and needed surgery. She required pins to hold her bones steady along with a cast. As she is constantly growing (and growing fast!) the cast needs to be changed to allow for this. Changing the cast took about 5 hours, and she pulled through very well. We still need help covering the costs – so if you can – please donate: https://www.youcaring.com/wild-at-heart-refuge-centre-466092



As a non profit organization (registered charity: 857767206RR0001), Wild at Heart depends on the generosity of our community to continue our mission to professionally treat wildlife and educate about human-wildlife interactions. Your support helps us to treat over 800 wild animals annually by purchasing specialized formula, nutrient-rich diets, quality medical supplies, new equipment, and much more. Without you, Wild at Heart would not be here today. Thank you for your continued support!
