BC SPCA - Wild ARC - Metchosin

Wild ARC Logo



Wild ARC is a Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre operated by the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and is located in Metchosin, about 40 minutes outside of Victoria.


Our mission is to provide humane care to injured, orphaned, sick and distressed wildlife based on established rehabilitation standards and the animal's natural history. 


 Wild ARC is the only wildlife rehabilitation centre on southern Vancouver Island and treats over 3,000 wild animals annually from over 140 different species.



 Wild ARC also aims to educate the public about wildlife, animal welfare, and co-existing with nature, as over 80% of the wild animals treated at Wild ARC are impacted by human activity. Our efforts are not funded by any government agency.

We really appreciate your interest and support in caring for our local wild animals in distress!

Wild ARC - Wildlife Transport

Our transporters act as ‘animal ambulances’ (while still obeying the rules of the road!), to make sure distressed wildlife arrives at our centre as soon as possible. No need to be a daring rescue hero, these team members transport already-contained wildlife in need of a safe ride.

Wild ARC - Events, Fundraising and Outreach

If you like making connections with local supporters, or are interested in gaining more fundraising experience, our Events and Fundraising Team is the place to start. From benefit auctions to raffles, there’s many chances to help generate much-needed funds to support our work.

Every day over 500 employees come to work supported by over 5,000 volunteers all committed to the following statement:


The BC SPCA exists to enhance the quality of life for
domestic, farm and wild animals in British Columbia
