Welcome to the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary


The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary is a registered charity that treats and cares for injured or orphaned wild mammals and turtles until they are healthy enough to be returned to their natural habitats. We also offer advice on co-existing peacefully with wildlife and provide humane, cost-effective ways to prevent or solve wildlife conflicts.


The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary has cared for more than 1,700 animals since 2005. The Sanctuary is the only licenced rehabilitator of small mammals serving the Ottawa and Rideau Valleys. We do not receive any government funding and rely entirely on donations from the general public, businesses and foundations.
