Welcome to WADARS....
YOUR local Charity

Based in Worthing, West Sussex, WADARS is a leading animal rescue charity and has been providing protection of animals of all kinds in need of care and attention since 1969.

Like you, we understand 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 rescue officers respond to calls from the general public where animals are in peril and during the summer months, can receive more than 50 calls a day.

We receive no government funding and rely on donations and legacies from the community to make all this possible. If you love animals, please donate now.


I was once a stray so I'm a bit shy, but if you are the right person with plenty of time to bring me out of my shell, I am the boy for you.

I am a black cat of questionable age. Why not come and see me.


WADARS is a registered charity No.1149884 and a company limited by guarantee No.8273985, VAT No.154 7428 96


Hello there, I'm Lola and I am feeling very sad. I have been with Wadars for quite some time now, and nobody seems to want me.

I was previously rehomed to a lovely family but unfortunately the resident dog wasn't too happy with my presence so I'm now back looking for a new home again. I do need some basic training and I am quite strong.

There was lots of interest in me last time so call Wadars as soon as possible if you are interested in a big loveable dog, who would love to come and live with you.
