Eden Animal Rescue

Eden Animal Rescue (EAR) has been caring for animals since 1995.

  • Entirely independent and proud to save animals other rescues refuse to help. We never turn down an animal in need. We are very proud of our non-destroy policy
  • Actively seeks good homes for all animals in our care
  • Rescues hundreds of dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets each year

Thank you!

We'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who braved the weather to attend our open day at the end of May. You helped to raise more than £2,000 to help the animals in our care. Special thanks to our volunteers, to those that donated food or prizes for the raffle and tombola, and to Jen Cartmel and Shona Broome for amazing dog obedience and agility demos. We are also grateful to Appleby Fire Service and Frames and Swift Vets for their support on the day.

If you'd like to you can bring along a photo of your pet to be added to a display. Everyone welcome, including dogs. Entry by donation, and light refreshments available to purchase.

A lovable trio!

These beautiful residents are constantly overlooked and are all desperate to leave kennels and become part of a loving family. Some come with a few quirks which makes them even more interesting! Willow has been searching for her special human for over TWO YEARS with Jack Russell Penny not far behind. Derek the cat just need a rural home to chill out in. Can you help one of our special long stay residents?

Special Seniors...

Seb is a gentle, timid senior kittizen found as a stray in poor condition. He is really struggling in a busy rescue and urgently needs a very quiet, patient retirement home where he can gain confidence in his own time. Seb loves food and it's the highlight of his day. As Seb is FIV positive, he needs to be the only cat in the household. Seb is also available to foster.

Please contact the centre if you'd like to meet this special boy.



Herbert is an older cat that has always had to fend for himself until now. Sadly Herbert is diabetic so we need an owner that can give him the insulin that he needs twice daily, 12 hours apart. Herbert is still a little bit nervous but in a home with time and love he will soon learn to trust, he has never been aggressive and likes other cats. Please give this special boy a chance!



Meet Bridie and Groomie ❤️❤️

This pair are 14 years old and are looking for a quiet home for their retirement. Sadly their previous owner passed away.

They didn't really have much contact with any other humans other than him, so they are timid but with someone that can offer them time and patience they will learn to trust and love again.

Please can you be that special person for them?


Kittens, kittens everywhere!

For many people "kittens, kittens everywhere" conjures up an incredibly cute and joyful image but for rescue centres across the country it means the start of a very busy period as catteries are filled to bursting with new arrivals and expectant mothers.

You can help us by:

Neutering your cat - females can become pregnant at just 4 months old so it is essential that your cat is spayed to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Adopting an animal - as well as kittens we have lots of amazing older cats looking for homes. They make wonderful pets but are often overlooked.

Volunteering - help us look after the cats and kittens while they wait for their forever homes.

Donating - make a contribution towards the cost of feeding, housing, neutering, and vaccinating the animals in our care. Keeping kittens happy and healthy soon adds up!

Thank you!

Thank you Olivia!

A massive thank you Olivia for doing the Yomp walk at Kirkby Stephen, to raise funds for Eden Animal Rescue. She learnt about our charity after we went to her school to do a talk about the work we do with the animals in our care. Olivia raised £200! She was able to come to our centre recently to see the animals that she has helped. She had a great time helping with the rabbits and is coming back in the school holidays to help us care for our animals with an adult.


Saturday 15 June

Come and see us at WCF Pet & Equestrian in Penrith where we will have a fundraising stall between 10:00am and 3:00pm on Saturday 15 June.


Volunteer roles

A huge THANK YOU to all our dedicated long term and new volunteers! Sadly due to the amount of animals in our care and our small staff team, we need more help with many areas including animal care, fundraising, shop work and administration. If you can donate any of your spare time to help please contact me on 07850451450 or 01931716114. Sarah
