Lost Pets and Injured Wildlife

Lost pets: Since we do not have staff overnight, we are currently unable to take in strays. If you find a lost pet, we can scan it for a microchip and check for a tattoo, in case these can help re-unite it with the owner.

Wildlife: Local wildlife rehabilitation centers will pick up injured wildlife from SAVE, and they can be brought to the clinic (please call first to ensure that we are able to arrange for a wildlife pickup; if we are unable to do so, it may be recommended to take them to Calgary to a facility where they can be monitored overnight). We will always recommend calling the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) at 403-946-2361 if you have found injured wildlife. They are the experts and will be able to advise you what to do next.
