Wild at Heart is excited to offer birthday parties at our Centre! For 2 hours, attendees will be treated to an interactive presentation about the animals cared for at our Centre, games and crafts (age dependent), and a tour of our Centre. We mean it when we say there is no age restriction to these parties, only a limit on number of attendees (15) per session. Each session is 2 hours in length, and costs $100 (non-refundable).
To book your birthday party at Wild at Heart, please fill in the form below and we will get back to you if that day is available. Weekdays and weekends are available, depending on staffing.
***Note: Wild at Heart does not provide food, drinks, or decorations for the birthday party. If you would like to give us decorations ahead of time to set-up, please ensure decorations are self-standing, or can be hung on the wall with green painter’s tape. We also have room to hang a banner if needed.***

As Wild at Heart continues to expand our education outreach programming, we are looking to offer free day camps to the community. From August 13-15th, we will be hosting day camps for students ages 6-12, focusing on environmental issues like wildlife-human conflict, water pollution, and pollinators and native plants, as well as a field trip to Walden Animal Hospital to learn about their partnership with Wild at Heart.
By removing the cost of admission for these camps, all students will have the opportunity to attend. Students will learn first-hand about local environmental issues, and how they can make a positive difference in their community. This will also raise awareness about Wild at Heart, and let people know where they can bring an injured, orphaned, or sick wild animal.
We need YOUR support to make this 3-day summer day camp possible! Make sure to vote in-person, or online.
Check out Wild at Heart’s Facebook event here (great for reminding you to vote!). Thank you to the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury for hosting this great, local initiative.

Stop by the New Sudbury Centre March 15th for a full day of Wild at Heart education programming!

Make sure to take a photo in Wild at Heart’s mural as your favourite wild animal!
Thank you to everyone in Elliot Lake for their continued support and commitment to helping wildlife! This fox was recently admitted to Wild at Heart with a case of mange, which is caused by parasitic mites that burrow into the skin, causing extreme skin irritation. Animals with mange are often characterized by being underweight, losing fur, a strong smell, and having their eyes shut. With a few rounds of treatment and lots of time to recover and gain weight, this fox was released back into the wild!
Symbolically adopting a fox helps cover Wild at Heart’s medical and food costs to ensure these beautiful animals can return to the wild where they belong. You can symbolically adopt a fox here.
