Welcome to Wadars
Based in Worthing, Wadars is a leading animal rescue charity and has been providing care and protection of animals of all kinds, in need of care and attention by reason of sickness, maltreatment, poor circumstances or similar causes since 1969.
We believe that animals enrich our lives; we also know they cannot speak for themselves and need protection. Wadars rescues and rehabilitates more than 1,500 injured and orphaned wildlife and re-homes over 600 unwanted or abandoned pets every year.
Our team of animal welfare officers respond to calls from the general public where animals are in peril and during the summer months, can receive more than 60 calls a days. At any one time, we have more than 50 dogs, cats and other pets in our care needing new homes.
Currently, as we have no homing centre of our own, Wadars animals are cared for in commercial kennels and catteries or with our volunteer fosterers until suitable forever homes can be found. We also have the support of various wildlife sanctuaries in the area.
In January 2015, we completed our move to permanent new premises in Ferring where the Charity is now based. From here, we shall develop our own animal rescue and rehoming centre, where we shall become responsible for the care of our animals, 24 hours a day.
Wadars is a registered charity and relies almost entirely on donations, legacies and fundraising from within the community that it serves to make all this possible.
DOG OF THE WEEK
“Hello everyone, I am Hamish, and I need a home because my owner became ill and sadly couldn’t look after me anymore.”
Hamish is a one year old neutered cross-breed male, who has lived with children but is not suitable with cats. He would love a chance to be settled and start a new life. Could you give him his forever home?
CAT OF THE WEEK
“Hey there, my name is Charlie and I am a female cat of about 2 years old”.
Charlie originally came in with her brother because her owners had to move and couldn’t take them to their new home. Although she is 2 years old, she is still quite kittenish and playful, so would not be suitable in a home with children. Why not call Wadars so you can come and meet her?
