Wildlife Helpline remains operational
During these challenging times, our Wildlife Helpline remains operational. As we are primarily a virtual organization, we are still able to assist animals in need of rehabilitation, while eliminating the need for the public to directly interact with anyone.
Please be advised that Pender Veterinary Centre is temporarily not accepting wildlife at this time; however, our other veterinary partners are still permitting wildlife drop offs with proper notification. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 703-440-0800 if you find an animal in need of assistance.
