Every contribution helps local animals in need!

Whiskers Pet Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization committed to helping and caring for animals who have been abandoned, injured, abused, or neglected. We rescue and adopt out hundreds of pets each year, placing them in loving forever homes. We receive no state or federal funding. We are able to help as many animals as we do thanks to generous donations from people like you.

Whiskers Pet Rescue is run entirely by volunteers. We have no paid staff so all of the money we raise goes to the direct care of our animals.
All donations are tax deductible.

Secure credit card donations can be made online to Whiskers Pet Rescue through PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to make a donation. To get started, please click the Donate button below.


Checks can be made out to Whiskers Pet Rescue and mailed to:

Whiskers Pet Rescue
P.O. Box 367
Southbury, CT 06488

We always need the following items to care for our rescued animals until they are placed in their forever homes. We know some of these items aren’t very glamorous, but they are all vital to the daily care we give our four-legged friends in order to ensure that the temporary home we provide them is safe, clean, and comfortable.

If you’d like to donate any of these items, please bring them to our Adoption Center during our Adoption Hours. If none of these times are convenient for you, you may contact us at 203-586-1666 or to make other arrangements.
