All Canadian wildlife rehabilitation organizations are self-funded, and rely on donations. NWRF could not raise funds without the help of our generous partners!
an anonymous benefactor ensures 100% of donations go directly to the animals!
An anonymous benefactor pays for NWRF’s administrative costs in full, including transportation and fundraising supplies, so we can ensure that all donations go directly to the care of wildlife and the food, medicine, supplies, and equipment needed for their rehabilitation.

Daniel Janetos, marathon runner and Guinness World Record Holder
For the past three years, Guinness World Record-holding marathon runner Daniel Janetos has been the primary fundraiser for NWRF.
In 2016 at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Daniel broke the Guinness World Record for fastest marathon dressed as a chef (carrying a three kilogram pot!) with a time of 3:56:21.
In 2017, Daniel completed a half-marathon dressed as a chef in a Guinness World Record-breaking time of 1:34:53.
In 2018, Daniel broke his own record by over seven minutes, completing the half-marathon with a time of 1:27:50!
Through his hard work and record-breaking accomplishments, Daniel Janetos has raised funds for NWRF year after year. Funds raised through Daniel’s efforts have allowed NWRF to provide the food, formula, medicine, equipment, and supplies that wildlife rehabilitation organizations need to continue their valuable work for wild animals.
Thank you Daniel!
