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.

It may be too early to think about planting your garden seeds, but for us winter is a good time to start planning for the inevitable spring kitten rush. Sadly, each year our shelter is inundated with kittens, nursing or pregnant cats and having supplies ready at all time can literally be a life saver.

Funds raised on this page will be used to refill our stock of formula, nursing bottles, heating pads and carriers.

If you are not in a position to donate but have small blankets, heating pads (without auto shut off) or carriers we will gladly accept them.

If you would like to help, please visit www.pawr.org/funds.
All donations over $20 will qualify for a tax receipt.
is our goal!
