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 was our 20th Birthday and we thought that was well worth celebrating! During the year Eden Animal Rescue purchased Moorlands Head Farm, Newbiggin to become our new home. 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 still have a daunting amount of work to do over the next few months as the build progresses. We are working incredibly hard and are hoping the new centre will be ready for the animals to move in hopefully late spring 2016. Fundraising is going to be 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 going to be a very busy and exciting year to come!l
