Welcome to Wildhaven Wildlife Shelter. (Not for Profit).
Wildlife Victoria does NOT have permission to use Wildhaven pictures or name, in any form.
Wildhaven is not affiliated with Wildlife Victoria and we have not been members of WLV since the 2009 fires.
Life is life; if you say you are there for the animals, you have a duty of care and a big responsibility to live up to.
Carers are doing a wonderful job quietly with no motive of greed.
Carers are volunteers who live their life fully caring for the little ones.
Wildhaven is a property dedicated to the rescue, transport and care of the most noble and gentle mammals; they are unique, precious individuals.
"There is nothing more delightful than to scoop up a wild joey in your arms and smell the wind and eucalyptus in the coats of the gentle Kangaroo or the deep-earth smell of tiny wallabies. It is wonderful to see the trust in their eyes and the gradual realisation that you mean them no harm" (Stella Reid)
Wildhaven was completely destroyed on 7th February 2009. Tragically, the fire took all the wildlife in care as well as domestic pets and all buildings. We have now rebuilt and will continue our work with the wildlife. (The fire bunker for the Wildlife is ready to use).
Please take the time to experience a little of what Wildhaven does by looking through the photos - all of which were taken by Stella.
All creatures were created by the same hand... It is our duty to protect them.
