Mission Statement

BC SPCA Wild ARC's mission is to provide humane care to injured, orphaned, sick and distressed wildlife based on established rehabilitation standards and the animal's natural history. Each patient is treated individually and assessed for eventual release back into the wild. 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.

Wild ARC is a Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre operated by the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. As the only wildlife rehabilitation centre on southern Vancouver Island, Wild ARC treats 2,500 wild animals annually from throughout the region. Our efforts are not funded by any government agency and we appreciate your interest and support in caring for wild animals in distress.
