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.
My name is Chima and I’m a 4 1/2 year old Labrador Retriever mix. Even though I’m young my body feels as if I’m older. I have arthritis in my legs, but don’t let that scare you away! I’ve had blood work done to ensure that all of my organs are functioning properly so that I can safely have daily pain management medication. The cost for the medication to keep me comfortable is estimated around $50/month. Since my new adopters will have to pay for medication my adoption fee has been lowered to $150, and I am spayed, up to date on vaccines, flea treated, de-wormed and microchipped.
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!
