Eden Animal Rescue has been caring for animals since 1995.
The scale of our work is enormous; last year we homed 265 cats and kittens and nearly 90 dogs.. not to mention the many rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and other small domestic animals which also came our way! This year, those numbers are set to be higher and our animals need you to help us be able to care for them, and find them new homes.
For many years our busy rescue centre was located near Shap, Cumbria but in 2016 we moved to a purpose built centre at Moorlands Head Farm, near Newbiggin, Temple Sowerby. Our new home is proving to be a wonderful place for our animals - the space, atmosphere and surroundings contribute massively to their wellbeing. As well as welfare needs and behavioural work, we also pay veterinary bills for annual vaccinations, neutering, any treatment required and micro-chipping. While an animal is with us we provide care, companionship and understanding and do all we can to match them to a great new home and owner.
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.

Beautiful Penny is 9 years old and has been in our care since July 2017. She is an active little dog who is friendly when she gets to know you but will need an adult only home environment and someone with time to continue building her trust. We are really hoping the right home will come along soon for this little lady. As one of our longer stay residents, you can help Penny by sponsoring her.
If you would like further information then please do get in touch.
Our lively, busy shop in Great Dockray is open six days a week (closed on Sunday) and we require help every week day ideally from 10am till 1pm or 1 till 4 pm and Saturdays 10am to 1pm. The shop provides us with vital income and is a very important part of our charity.
