Our Name: Procyon Wildlife (pronounced “PRO-see-on”).
Our Motto: Working For Wildlife: We accept all species of mammals native to Ontario in an effort to preserve wildlife in their natural habitat.
Our Mission: Procyon Wildlife is dedicated to working with our communities in an effort to help wild animals in need of care. Our goals are to rescue, rehabilitate and safely release these animals, and to promote public appreciation for wildlife preservation.
Procyon Wildlife is provincially licensed by the Ministry of Natural Resources and is located near Beeton, Ontario. Compassionate members of local and surrounding communities bring needy animals that they have found to our facility for care. Each year, Procyon Wildlife looks after hundreds of orphaned and injured wild animals. Animals are cared for by our specially-trained staff of dedicated volunteers. The animals are released into their original natural habitats as soon as they are healthy and able to fend for themselves.
Our facility includes:
- a triage, first aid and recovery centre for sick and injured animals
- nurseries for raising infants until they are old enough to release
- outdoor enclosures where animals are transitioned back into their natural, wild environment
- a learning centre where children and community groups can learn about wild animals and see wildlife rehabilitation in progress
