The World of WEAMS
The Wild and Exotic Animal Medicine Society (WEAMS) is a non-profit organization that’s operated by student volunteers at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM).
When concerned citizens bring in ill or injured wildlife to WCVM’s Veterinary Medical Centre, our dedicated members work closely with supervising clinicians to provide care for these special patients. Our goal is to fully rehabilitate all of our patients and to release them in their natural habitat.
Our student volunteers are responsible for:
- The daily care of rehabilitating wildlife throughout the year — including holidays, weekends and the summer months.
- Maintaining adequate food supplies for patients and caring for teaching birds.
