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.
Eden Animal Rescue are proud of the fact that we have a non-destruct policy and believe that NO healthy animal should ever be put to sleep. We always seek advice from our vets and it would be only on the advice from a vet that an animal would be euthanised.
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.
The Eden Animal Rescue Team!
Thank you Vince Raven for raising £500 for Eden Animal Rescue.
The evening was a great success and Vince even came to the Rescue centre to play for our volunteers and kittens!
Thanks too to Rob and Helen the refreshments
Smudge is a super friendly senior kittizen aged 13. She's always at the front of her pen desperate for cuddles and attention. She really misses home after her human became too ill to care for her. Smudge is a real lap cat and would adore a quiet retirement home. She's recently been diagnosed with diabetes and has two insulin injections each day which she is happy with. If you can't offer Smudge a home please consider sponsoring her to help us pay for her medical care.
Love animals? Love Eden Animal Rescue? Still determined to

An up to date Will ensures your wishes are carried out after your death.
Free Wills Month starts on 1st October 2018.
Individuals and couples aged 55 years and over can have a simple will written
or updated free of charge by using solicitors participating in the campaign.
Complex wills may involve charges and the solicitor can advise on this. The
campaign is funded by many charities all hoping people will consider leaving a
legacy to their favourite charity in their will.
There is no obligation to do this whatsoever. Appointments are limited
and once all appointments are booked the campaign will close. More information
is available from various sources including www.freewillsmonth.org.uk
By leaving a legacy to Eden Animal Rescue you are helping fund a place of safety and care for all those animals in need of shelter in the future. We receive no lottery or government aid. Legacies are vital to charitable income. Legacies accumulated over 20 years finally gave us the opportunity to move from Hardendale to Moorlands Head Farm in 2016.
To all those wonderful people who put their faith in us and supported our
vision we owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
Our Rescue Centre is open 6 days a week by appointment only

We were delighted to share in the celebrations at North Lakes Hotel on Monday 20th August as our Patrons Max and Paddy received a PDSA Commendation!
Congratulations and well done!
We are hopeful that the end is in sight for our recent bout of kennel cough.
