Raising animal care standards and promoting respectful human-animal relationships.

OUR Vision


Pet And Wildlife Rescue is a registered charity in Chatham-Kent whose main mission is to raise animal care standards in the community.

Our mission is carried through several programs which include finding suitable homes for surrendered or abandoned pets through fostering and adoption, providing temporary animal care to local pet owners in distress, operating a pet food bank, and assisting orphaned or injured wildlife through our volunteer team.

Our organization is contracted by the municipality of Chatham-Kent to provide animal control and pound services for the county.

Donation Tracker

We are full and we need help than ever to give each of our 300+ animals the veterinary care they need. In an effort to find homes for as many pets as possible we have lowered our adoption rates. This means we have to compensate the cost associated with spaying/neutering and vetting each animal.

If you are not in a position to donate please consider helping us get through this very busy season,  visit www.pawr.org/funds.

is our goal!
