Wildlife Emergency Helpline: (03) 8400 7300


In the absence of significant government funding for the rescue and care of wildlife we take on the cost of wildlife care for the Hepburn Shire and it’s surrounding regions.

Gayle, Jon and the volunteer team at Hepburn Wildlife Shelter are honored to be able to provide dedicated hands on wildlife care for the over 100 animals in our shelter, but without regular funding we require the help of the community to keep the shelter operational and providing the high standards of care we promise to all native wildlife.

With the current number of animals under our care the cost of daily shelter operations (Food,  Medicine, Utilities, Transportation, etc) runs to approximately $6,000 – $7,000 per month.
