Welcome to Wild at Heart Wildlife Refuge Centre!

Snapping Turtle: Wild at Heart "Species Spotlight"

Tour of Wild at Heart

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 900 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! All donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt, sent once a year by post mail.

Go Fund Me campaign - #GetWildlifeHome

#GetWildlifeHome: as Wild at Heart admits hundreds of animals this year, our goal is to rehabilitate them and get them back into the wild. Will you make a tax-deductible donation today to help us get these little ones back home? View our Go Fund Me campaign here.

Upcoming Initiatives

Symbolically adopt a moose or donate today to help us care for our three new orphaned moose calves! These three will be with us into the winter months, and with formula pails costing $200 each, pellet bags costing $60 each, and medications and bedding needed, these calves will be quite the undertaking for Wild at Heart. Thank you for partnering with us!
