Join the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan for a fun filled day at Gone Wild for Wildlife. There will be live wildlife from near and far, interactive and educational displays, fun and informative lectures, a silent auction, and activities such as owl pellet dissections, science experiments, juggling school and much more.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 14th at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon from 10 am until 5 pm. All funds raised from the event will go towards helping WRSOS continue their efforts to help keep Saskatchewan’s wildlife wild. Admission is $5/person or $20/Family.

WRSOS’ primary goals are: to prevent the unnecessary removal from the wild of wildlife, to provide rescue and transportation to qualified care of those that do need help and, to ensure the return to the wild of rescued and rehabilitated wildlife. Through events such as Gone Wild for Wildlife, WRSOS aims to raise awareness and knowledge about wildlife, rehabilitation and nature preservation in Saskatchewan and to promote understanding and respect for wildlife.

Established in 2006, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan is a volunteer driven, registered non-profit organization. WRSOS’ first line of defence is our emergency hotline. This phone line is manned 12 hours/day, 365 days/year. The hotline gives the public an avenue they can take when they find an injured or orphaned animal or when they have questions or need advice regarding wildlife issues. A dramatic increase in calls – from 177 in 2006 to almost 2000 in 2014 – only highlights the need for an organization like WRSOS.

WRSOS has 70 volunteers and one paid summer employee on the emergency hotline. WRSOS’ efforts are supported by 20 vet clinics province wide that volunteer their services free or at a reduced rate and 20 provincially licensed wildlife rehabilitators from Moose Mountain to Meadow Lake.
