Eden Animal Rescue (EAR) has been caring for animals since 1995.
The animals in our care have written their list to Santa Paws and as they've been extra good boys and girls while they wait for their forever homes we think they deserve some special treats this year. To make it easier for Santa Paws at this busy time of year we've set up an Amazon wishlist.
If you'd like to help give them a very happy Christmas and an even better New Year you can:

Gemma is gorgeous Jack Russell who is around 6-7 years old. She has been handed in because she has issues with other dogs. She is a very friendly, happy little dog with people and has lived with children before. She would prefer a home where there aren't close neighbours with other dogs as she can get stressed if she can hear dogs barking outside, it would also be great if there was a very secure garden for her to have some "off lead" time.
Please call 01931 716 114 if you think you can offer her the perfect home.
Toast is a handsome 3 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He loves people and giving lots of staffy kisses! He's lived with children 9 years and older but can be reactive to other dogs so need to have controlled introductions.
If you could be the right family for Toast please give us a call on 01931 716 114.
Kia is 6 and a half years old and a beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Patterdale Terrier cross. She is a very friendly girl with people and likes playing.
Do you have a pet and child free home for Kia?
Call us on 01931 716 114 if you do.
Can you offer Lola a quiet, rural home and some comfort and security in her senior years? This lovely lady has lived as a barn cat for most of her life and deserves some TLC. She likes the company of other cats, and although she needs long term medication for her eye we can help cover the cost.
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.
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?
Can you help a feral cat become a cosy cat this winter? If you have a barn, stable, or outbuilding and can provide a warm bed and some food you could make life a lot more comfortable for a street kitty. Please contact us if you can help.
