Request a call back from TWC’s Wildlife Hotline team

To help our staff assess your situation more quickly, PLEASE UPLOAD PHOTOS at the bottom of this form but do not handle, cause undue stress to the animal, or engage in dangerous activity in order to obtain a photo.

It is our goal to respond to emergency situations within 1 hour but wait times may be longer if we are experiencing high call volume. If you are submitting this form, PLEASE DO NOT CALL OUR HOTLINE as it duplicates our messages and increases wait times.

We are open 7 days a week including holidays from 9am to 6pm and generally respond to inquiries about baby and adult wildlife from the Greater Toronto Area.

Requests for assistance received after 6pm will be returned the following morning. Please read through important assessment and temporary care instructions on our website while you are waiting for us to call you.

Please be advised that we DO NOT HAVE A PICK-UP SERVICE; you will likely be asked to contain the animal and transport it to our centre unless it is a species that requires a wildlife expert to be contained (e.g. coyote), or if the animal is in a complex or dangerous situation not suitable for a member of the public to handle.

Thank you!
