GROWLS - Gabriola Rescue of Wildlife Society


GROWLS on Gabriola Island GROWLS. is a registered non-profit society whose mandate is the rescue of ill, injured or otherwise disabled wildlife and the preservation of natural wildlife habitat on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.


Our main role is to rescue and transport injured or sick animals to a veterinarian or one of the wildlife recovery facilities on Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island.

Our long-term vision is to foster the education of GROWLS volunteers and our community to be more knowledgeable and respectful of our natural world.


We do not want to keep wild animals as pets…the goal is to release animals back into the wild. We strive to provide the best care possible and with minimal stress to the animal.
