Wildlife Rescue

Helen and I operate a licensed Wildlife Shelter at our home in East Trentham where we care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. However, we are not always available, nor may we be the closest to an animal needing assistance. There are other Shelters and rescue volunteers in our area and across Victoria. To ensure a wildlife emergency is attended as quickly as possible by the nearest suitable rescuer, please contact one of the organizations listed below. Some are State wide while others service particular regions.

These organizations are generally operated by volunteers and are 'not for profit'.

When necessary, the wildlife organization will refer callers to professional rescue service providers such as Five Freedoms Animal Rescue. Examples of calls that would be referred are snake calls, rescues in dangerous environments, rescues involving tree-climbing, possums in roofs, and wildlife trapped in homes or buildings.
