Eden Animal Rescue

Eden Animal Rescue has been caring for animals since 1995.

The scale of our work is enormous; last year we homed many cats and dogs... not to mention lots of 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!

Pretty Penny...

Will pretty Penny steal your heart?

Beautiful 10 year old Penny is looking for experienced owners with a pet and child free home. She doesn't like having her neck touched, and will need someone who can give her time to build trust, but is such a friendly little dog once she gets to know you.

She has been in kennels since July 2017 and desperately needs her forever home. If you're the perfect person for Penny please get in touch!

Penny is kindly sponsored by JIW Properties while she waits for her furever home. Thank you!
