The Chariho-Westerly Animal Rescue League was formed in 1968 as a non-profit charitable organization by Ilon Sillman and Sarah Andrews. Its purpose was to provide humane education, prevent cruelty to animals, provide neutering, spaying, and shots programs, and to create a humane shelter. Today we continue to support many of these programs and additionally provide financial assistance for pets with medical needs. All of our programs are limited to the Chariho-Westerly area.
Our geographical area encompasses the Chariho (local term created to include the district of Charlestown, Richmond, and Hopkinton) and Westerly portions of Southern Rhode Island, as well as Pawcatuck, Connecticut.
The League meets the 3rd Monday of every month at 5 P.M. at 33 Larry Hirsch Lane in Westerly, RI. Feel free to attend a meeting or to phone us with any questions regarding the groupīs functions or volunteer needs. (401) 596-2090
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
The Chariho-Westerly Animal Rescue League (known as the CWARL) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, organization which functions solely as a voice for the voiceless: companion animals. We assist in the neutering/spaying of pets as well as low cost shot programs. We assist in emergency medical treatments and work with local animal shelters and schools in educating the children in the humane care of animals. We do the same for the general public, while limiting our efforts to the areas of Westerly, Charlestown, Richmond, Hopkinton, and Pawcatuck.
