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 currently 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 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.
Last year Eden Animal Rescue purchased Moorlands Head Farm, Newbiggin to become our new, purpose built rescue centre. 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 the build is progressing and the new centre should be ready for the animals to move in by mid-summer. Fundraising is crucial to 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!
We are absolutely delighted that a talented young local artist, Rebecca Hemp, has offered her support to our work. Rebecca is currently working on a project with some like-minded, artistic friends and they have very generously offered to donate their profits to Eden Animal Rescue.
The Lakeland Garden Project is a multi-artist collaboration that celebrates the Lake District and the natural world through art and crafts that both depict and harness the goodness nature has to offer. This exciting project includes an online store selling all sorts of arts and crafts - from paintings to tapestries to plant kits! All the profits go to Eden Animal Rescue and there are some real treasures to find… they even have some original, one-of-a-kind (as they won't be duplicated or sold as prints) artworks for sale.
The new rescue centre is now really taking shape. The cattery block has pens! The internal doors have been fitted, base electrics and plumbing are in place and the external wood cladding is going on. The builders attention will then shift back to the kennels whilst the internal finishing is done in the cattery. As the buildings take shape we are just so grateful to everyone who is supporting us. Please use the Brick by Brick link below to help us keep up the momentum and get the centre open!
Admittedly in our case it's more 'block by block' but you get the idea! We would love as many people as possible to know they have helped build our new centre and this is a great way to do it. Simply purchase one of our symbolic bricks to know that you have helped the build in a very real way. We have three bricks available…
An individual Brick £10
A Course of Bricks £25
A Cornerstone Gold Brick £100
To buy your brick is easy…
Simply click the following link, enter the total amount of your chosen bricks and enter the quantity of either 'individual brick', 'course of bricks' or 'gold brick's in the message box.
If you would like your name, or the name of the person you are buying for, to appear in a list to be displayed at the new centre then please don't forget to enter that too.
