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.

The grass is always greener…

If you’ve seen our new digs, we’re sure you’ve noticed a lack of grass and a surplus of mud. Our first big fundraiser in our new home is going to be devoted to raising funds for Astroturf to cover the dog yard.

Astroturf is a great solution when it comes to toileting dogs. Since it’s permeable, liquids are able to seep through, but being an artificial cover, it makes it much easier to pick up solid waste. A quick spray with the hose, and our dogs will have a nice clean spot to relieve themselves!

Thanks for helping our dogs enjoy shelter life to the fullest!  Donate HERE

is our goal!
