A registered charitable Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre located in Regina admits and cares for over 1,500 wild birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians annually while operating out of a 600-square-foot clinic.
Salthaven West is running out of space and has launched a campaign to fundraise for a new clinic. The director said they typically have 40 patients in the winter months but currently have 70 and that a larger space is needed.
“We’re almost double what we typically have and we started off with just a few hundred patients in a year, and we’ve gotten up to over 1,500 patients a year that we’re seeing,” said Megan Lawrence.
“Our clinic can just not hold that many patients anymore. We definitely need a new facility.”
