Eden Animal Rescue has been caring for animals since 1995.
The scale of our work is enormous; last year we homed 223 cats and kittens and 85 dogs.. not to mention the 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.
Our busy rescue centre was located near Shap, Cumbria for a number of years but we have now moved to a purpose built centre at Moorlands Head Farm, 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.
The Eden Animal Rescue Team!
We see many fantastic animals come and go at rescue and we all have our own personal favourites! But some animals touch us all and that is particularly true of the ones that end up in our care for long periods. We currently have two fantastic dogs that fall into this group that we would like to tell you about. Our hope is that the right person reads their stories and gets in touch… so they needn't spend another Christmas in rescue.
Spot is a lovely mature lady of 12 years and has been in care for over 2 years. We are looking for a super special mum who lives in a rural area and can offer her a nice quiet retirement home either permanently or as a long-term foster parent in which to spend her final years. Spot takes a while to get to know people and trust them but once she does, she is friendly and loyal. She is healthy, active and enjoys her walks.
We believe Spot has been abused by men as she dislikes them. She can therefore only live in an adult female household. She is worried around new people and her mum will need to be prepared to make regular visits to the rescue to bond with her. Our staff will offer full ongoing support.
Spot is on our sponsorship scheme so if you can't offer her the right home you can still help us care for this amazing dog.
You can imagine how completely delighted we are to share with you the news that Rocky is now going to his very own special home. Rocky the lurcher is our most famous rescue dog having appeared on Border TV. He was begging for a new home as he was so unhappy and stressed after spending 2 years in kennels. Sadly, no one came forward to help him. Rocky is only 3 years old and urgently needed to become part of a loving stable family having spent almost his entire life in care.
This is just such fantastic news for Rocky and we will send him on his way with all the love and best wishes we can. WELL DONE ROCKY - you sooooo deserve this.xx
Please note that we have amended opening times...
(we are closed on Wednesdays for staff training – sorry!).
With many thanks and our best wishes,
Would you love the chance to be Father Christmas?
If so, we have a very special Christmas list from our animals if you can help...
