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.

Special Surgeries Fund

Being an open admission shelter, we really never know who is going to come through our doors at any point. This means that quite often we end up housing animals in dire need of special care. From broken limbs to severe skin conditions we must be prepared to offer them the best veterinary care possible.

Our budget allows us to perform many surgeries, but is mostly focused on spays and neuters. We fundraise throughout the year to allow us to afford some major treatments. We are approaching the end of the year and our special surgery fund is running very low.

Please consider helping us prepare for the next emergency.
