Welcome to Wadars
Animal Rescue

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.

Could you rehome a bunny?

Betsy was born as a litter of four but has special needs as she is probably blind.
She is very attached to one of her siblings and so we need to find a home for them together as she relies on them.
Betsy is perfectly happy and is ready to find a loving new home so if you have lots of cuddles going spare then Besty could be
perfect for you.

If you would like to find out more information please call us on 01903 247111.

''Hey there! Iím an 8 year old medium sized cross breed who goes by the name of Max. Iím looking for a fun, loving, new home as my owner has unfortunately passed away.Ē

Max is used to being around other dogs and children, but is not great with cats. He has a wonderful, friendly temperament, loves walks and is good on the lead.
