Our Management Team


Bonnie joined the WRSOS team in 2017, and brought her enthusiasm and lifelong love of animals with her. After living in Jasper National Park for many years, she developed a deep appreciation of co-existing with wildlife. With a background in small business ownership and accounting, she joined WRSOS and has discovered a love of rescuing animals, most especially canids (especially coyotes!), and hopes to work full time with them in the future.

She lives in Saskatoon and for the past 26 years has always shared her home with a golden retriever or two and a few rescue cats. She enjoys anything to do with nature, being outdoors and spending time with her family.

Bonnie Dell

Executive Director


Samantha resides in Yorkton and has worked for the Co-op for 18 years, where she has been mostly recently managing the West Broadway C-Store for the last 8 years.

Although her day job isn't animal related, she has always been fascinated with animals for as long as she could remember.  She has been a foster with a local domestic animal rescue for many years and discovered WRSOS when she found an injured pigeon who needed help. This ultimately lead to her becoming a volunteer with WRSOS and has been active in rescues and hotline since Jan 2021!

Volunteer Coordinator


Sheri is the office administrator, international shipping coordinator, purchasing agent and machinist for Massload Technologies Inc. and Valley Custom Machining. She lives in small town Saskatchewan with 2 cats, 4 snakes and one Homo Sapien.

Originally from the Maritimes, the wide-open spaces, beautiful skies and incredible wildlife of the prairies has left an indelible mark and is now home. Sheri’s love for animals was fostered at an early age by her mother who worked for several vet clinics including the U of S vet college. Sheri was introduced to wildlife rehabilitation by several veterinarians, a Merlin falcon nestling named Arthur, and George the one eyed, 3-legged Canadian Toad. Sheri began volunteering with WRSOS in 2008 as a hotline operator and after several years became the event coordinator as well. You may meet her and snakes Wiggles, Wilbur and Houdini out and about around Saskatoon and surrounding areas.

Event Coordinator


Kelsey joined WRSOS in 2015 after a small bird hit a window at her house and sat on the ground for several hours. She was Googling to find out what we could do with the poor bird and found the WRSOS. One of the rescuers came out and helped the bird, and after that, she decided that she wanted to volunteer her time to help WRSOS and Saskatchewan’s wildlife. Shortly after joining, she became the Newsletter Coordinator, and also got involved with sponsorships and the Gone Wild for Wildlife event.

She is currently the Marketing Manager and can be reached at

Penny Zelensky

Born and raised in Regina, Chris spent a lot of time in his youth in the fields of southern Saskatchewan exploring nature. This interest led to Chris becoming one of Saskatchewan’s favorite traveling reptile educators. His passion for reptiles includes the native ones living in Saskatchewan. Living with his crew of reptiles, insects, birds, and dogs he spends his days writing code on the internet.

Chris joined the WRSOS to help out with their IT needs, but quickly got involved in rescues, transports, and is even building his wildlife rehabilitation knowledge.

Alex joined WRSOS as a way of staying active while staying home with her young son. She really enjoys her work on the hotline and her interactions with callers. She quickly overcame her fear of birds and bats to become a rescue volunteer as well.

She works at a local accounting firm and enjoys spending time with her family of boys and raising money for wildlife.

Patti has been “rescuing” animals for as long as she can remember, but certainly made her share of mistakes, despite good intentions. She’s become much wiser since volunteering for WRSOS, and continues to learn with each rescue experience.

Patti grew up & raised her family in Saskatoon. She loves animals & the outdoors, especially time spent in northern Saskatchewan at the family cabins. She is recently retired, having spent 31+ years working with people as a Social Worker. She now plans to spend the next 31 years helping wildlife.


Patti shares her home with a spouse, a cat & a dog.
