We Rescue, Sick, Injured and Orphaned Native Australian Wildlife  then Rehabilitate and Release

*Kangaloola is a not-for-profit charity private shelter that is not open to the general public

Our Vision

We dream of a time when native wildlife in Australia are able to live free, in a natural environment, unharmed by any form of human activity. Native animals deserve a life free from cruelty and human interference. For more than 30 years, we have taken injured and orphaned native animals, cared for their health and, finally, returned them to their natural environment.

Kangaloola Wildlife Shelter, which services a large area of North East Victoria, is a registered charity and not for profit association. We are one of the largest wildlife shelters in Victoria. Injured or threatened animals come into care for various reasons, including dog or cat attack, vehicle collision and those that find themselves in conflict with humans.

Get involved!

Protect and enhance a significant aspect of the natural environment, being native wildlife, through the prevention and relief of suffering of native animals by rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing (where possible) those that are sick, injured and orphaned.

Kangaloola Wildlife Shelter:  we “give animals a 2nd chance at life”.
