Foxes are Our Featured Animal for September!

September 2021 feature - FOXES
September 17th is National Fox Day, however, Procyon Wildlife will be celebrating Foxes for the entire month of September!

If you would like to help foxes in need of care at the Centre please consider sponsoring one.

This year we have had a high number of foxes admitted with severe mange. Left untreated, this disease is fatal. To learn more about foxes, read Procyon Wildlife Elizabeth Trickey’s informative article!

Another great way to support foxes is to visit our online store and purchase Scented Candles by Sabrina. Sabrina is a Procyon Wildlife volunteer and has created these gorgeous fox candles to celebrate our Ontario foxes! She is kindly donating 40% of all proceeds from sales of the candles to the Centre.

Procyon could use your help as a Telephone Volunteer!

call-center-1
Procyon needs your help more than ever! With the COVID-19 crisis, we are asking people not to bring animals to the centre without calling first.

This means we need help from people to operate our phone lines from the safety of their home.
THE HOURS we need for telephone service are Monday through to Sunday:
8:00am-2:00pm or 2:00pm-8:00pm
If you or someone you know might have a few extra hours per day to answer our hotline phones, please contact us at info@procyonwildlife.com We will provide remote telephone training.

If you encounter a wild animal that you believe needs help, please call us first at 905.729.0033

fawns (13)
If you encounter a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal, please call first at 905-729-0033 and leave a message.

A volunteer will return your call ASAP and will complete the admitting form over the phone with you. Our telephone lines are operated from 8 am to 8 pm daily. If outside of business hours, you will be called back the following morning.


You will be given a phone number to call upon your arrival with strict instructions to be followed.

Please follow them and do not come directly to the front door.

Thank you.
