Eden Animal Rescue has been caring for animals since 1995.
The scale of our work is enormous; last year 231 cats, 71 kittens and 176 dogs came to us.. not to mention the many rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and other small domestic animals which also come our way! And our animals need you to help us be able to care for them, and find them new homes.
Our busy rescue centre has been located near Shap, Cumbria for a number of years but we have just moved to a new home near Newbiggin, Temple Sowerby. As well as welfare needs and behavioural work, we also pay veterinary bills for annual vaccinations, neutering, any treatment required and micro-chipping for the dogs. While an animal is with us we provide care, companionship and understanding and do all we can to find it a good home.
Having only a small team of employees, we rely heavily on the work of our fantastic volunteers, both in fundraising and in caring for the animals. So whether you are interested in adopting an animal or feel you would like to help out in some way, we hope our website helps you get to know us and keep in touch. If you can't find the answer to your question though, please do contact us.
Last year Eden Animal Rescue purchased Moorlands Head Farm, Newbiggin to become our new, purpose built rescue centre - and we have just moved in! Buying a property of our own was a huge moment for the charity and will allow us to greatly improve the facilities we need to care for the animals. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported and helped us over the years and made this possible. We couldn't have done it without you. We are indebited to a number of people who remembered us in their wills and without whose legacies Moorlands Head Farm would have remained a distant dream.
We are incredibly busy at the moment as we settle in to our new home. Fundraising is obviously crucial to all our efforts as is lots of volunteers! We hope you are as excited about Moorlands Head Farm as we are and can help support us through what is proving to be a very busy and exciting year!
The Eden Animal Rescue Team!
Please note that we have amended opening times... Our Rescue Centre is now open 6 days a week by appointment 11:30 am to 3:00 pm (we are closed on Wednesdays for staff training – sorry!).
On the 4th September we safely transferred all our cats and kittens to Moorlands Head Farm. A while later the dogs joined them. Then on September the 25th you over-whelmed us with the support and enthusiasm you showed for the new centre by visiting our grand opening in such numbers.
We truly can't thank you all enough for making it happen. It was a momentous day not only for us as a charity, but for everyone who cares about animals. We hope you feel as proud as we do of what has been achieved - as without your support it really wouldn't have been possible.
It was a genuine pleasure to see you all and we hope you will continue to be part of our exciting journey.
With heartfelt thanks from,
The Eden Animal Rescue Team and all our fantastic animals.
