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.

Hi there. My name is Poppy and yes, you've seen me before! I am the little girl with only 3 legs. I am about 4 1/2 years old and I am a small to medium sized Terrier cross. I did go to a new home for a little while but unfortunately my new owner became allergic to me so had to bring me back to Wadars. I am being fostered by a lovely veterinary nurse who has done lots of work with me and says I am very well behaved and a delight to be with.

Despite a difficult start, I love to get out in the fresh air for fun and frolics. It really is time for me to find my forever home. If you think you could love a fun-loving little girl like me, please call Wadars so you can come and meet me. I am sure you will fall in love and want to take me home!
