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.

Last week we received a call from a local vet who had an injured dog surrendered to them. They reached out to us to see if we could take him on, and we did. We wanted him to have his second chance!

Surgery was immediately scheduled to have his badly damaged leg removed and to give him some much-needed relief. Unfortunately, due to the extensive breaks and surrounding trauma, Otisโ€™ leg could not be saved.

During his pre-op exam and bloodwork, Otis was found to be riddled with parasites, extremely anemic and also suffering from both heartworm and Lyme disease. Throughout his entire ordeal, Otis has been nothing but a dream. He just wants to be loved and cuddled.
We are committed to helping him feel as good as he can, and to get him into his forever home.

This is where we will need your help! His surgery and follow up treatments are costly and will take a bit of time to complete – we would greatly appreciate any contributions that you can make to help cover the cost of his veterinary care. We thank you, and Otis thanks you for your support!
