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 is located near Shap, Cumbria. 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 part time 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 webpage 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.
2015 is Eden Animal Rescue's 20th Birthday. We think this is well worth celebrating! During this year we are planning to do just that so please keep watching our events page.
The Eden Animal Rescue Team!
Our new range of Christmas cards have just arrived. We have four brand new designs so hope there is something to suit everyone. The cards, along with our handsome Calendar for 2016, are available at any of our fundraising events, from our shop in Penrith, Hardendale or here on the website.
As their names suggest, Ivy and Cracker have been with us at Eden Animal Rescue for almost a year now. They are both sleek black female rabbits, one somewhat larger than the other! Whilst they have adjusted well to Rescue life, both would love the chance to have their own 'real' home and consistent human carers to tend to their needs. Despite having spent much time as neighbours, Ivy and Cracker don't want to share accomodation with each other but, as with all rabbits, proximity to others or possibly a suitable companion with which to bond and plenty of room to exercise would be just perfect for them.
We are delighted that Eden Animal Rescue has purchased Moorlands Head Farm, Newbiggin, Temple Sowerby for the location of the new rescue centre. What an amazing way of marking 20 years of hard work by many individuals and the amazing generosity of so many people who have supported us over those years.
The new centre has seven acres of land, will see improved dog kennelling, a new purpose built cattery and small animal area. The conversion work is estimated at £275K and our normal running cost of £130K pa still need to be covered. We are hoping building work will commence very shortly.
Meantime, whilst we are very busy trying to raise funds to cover the building work, we are continuing to care for all our animals at Hardendale as we always have. We are very grateful for the positive public reaction to our plans and we really hope you will continue to help us through this amazing period.
