Chatham Kent Animal Rescue

(aka CK Animal Rescue), Registered Charitable No. 852128701 RR0001, located in southwestern Ontario, Canada, is a non profit rescue organization comprised of dedicated animal lovers who volunteer their time, homes, love and commitment to care for our rescued dogs, many who were scheduled to be euthanized from high kill shelters.  Many of our volunteers work full time, attend school and work many extra hours for the love of our rescues.  Our ultimate goal is to find permanent loving homes through our foster/adoption program.

Where Does CK Animal Rescue Place Pets?

CKAR places pets mainly in Southwestern Ontario and Michigan. We have also placed pets in many areas throughout Canada and USA including: BC, Quebec and throughout Ontario, as well as Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama, Tennessee and New York.

How Many Pets Has CKAR Placed In Adoptive Homes?

Since October of 2010, CKAR has placed well over 800 animals in permanent homes, with 387 of those being in the past
year.

How Many Foster Homes Do You Have and Where?

From Windsor to London we have approximately 130 foster homes. Some for specific breeds, some for short-term, some long-term,
some seasonal, and some for Purple Leash Campaign.

What Is Purple Leash Campaign?

The <a
href=”http://www.purpleleash.com”>Purple Leash</a> Initiative provides temporary housing for the
pets of persons fleeing domestic abuse situations. Canadian research indicates that more than 40%
of pet owners experiencing domestic violence will significantly delay their escape to safety if it
means leaving a pet behind. Through the Purple Leash we are able to help those who need to make an
earlier escape from a violent situation.

Where Does CKAR Get Their Money?

We get our funding through adoption fees
(Currently $300), cash donations, and fundraisers including BBQs, Online Auctions, Cookie Sales,
Adoption Events at PetSmart/Pet Value, Donation Jars, Online Donations, Purple Leash Walk.
