Scott-1-845x684_edited.jpg

Scott was born and raised in Regina and from a very young age has always had a strong passion for the care of animals. In 2013, Scott began his veterinary career, and graduated from Saskatchewan Polytechnic in 2016 receiving a diploma in Veterinary Technology.

Learning about the wildlife rehabilitation in Regina, Scott became inspired and wanted to become involved with wildlife rehabilitation. One of Scott’s favourite wildlife to work with is birds of prey, especially eagles. Besides rescuing and transports, Scott enjoys interacting and educating the general public about wildlife.

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.

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 marketing@wrsos.org.

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.

Jan Shadick was born in California to a mother and father who quickly introduced her to a love of wildlife. Jan often had strange critters in cages in her bedroom or in the bathroom. From living with the exotic slow lorries (native to Burma/India), to Wonderful, the Raven, and everything in between, Jan grew up to appreciate the importance of wildlife in maintaining the balance of nature.

Jan moved to Connecticut after finishing her degree at the university in California. She focused on supporting people and became a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. While in Connecticut, her love of wildlife resurfaced, and Jan discovered wildlife rehabilitation as a new passion. Jan moved to Saskatchewan in 2001 to be nearer to her sister and family, and has been rehabilitating wildlife ever since.
