Eden Animal Rescue response:

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is wide ranging and is the biggest challenge we have faced since the 2001 Foot and Mouth epidemic.

As a result of Government advice and its impact on daily life we have carefully considered how we can best continue to look after the animals in our care at the Moorlands Head Farm centre, our staff and volunteers who work there as well the volunteers who run our shop in Penrith.

Sadly, we have decided that for the foreseeable future our shop in Penrith will close at the end of business on Saturday 21st March. We would like to thank everybody who has supported us up until now and we look forward to reopening as soon as possible.

Please do not leave donations outside the shop as it will not be taken in and will cause a nuisance to the local area.

The Centre will remain in operation to care for the animals resident there but we have made the difficult decision to close to the public for the foreseeable future with immediate effect. This is to ensure that our staff are protected as far as possible from the virus.

Our phone line and email answering will still be available but with it may be that we cannot answer as quickly as we or you would like. Please do not send personal requests by Facebook or Twitter and if you do need to contact us urgently an email to admin@edenanimalrescue.org.uk is the best solution.

Equally, we have decided to cancel all our fundraising events until the end of April including the Dog Show due to be held at Greystoke Castle on 19th April. This will have a serious impact on our income but in the light of Government advice we believe that it is the right thing to do. So if you were going to support us at one of the events please consider how you can make a donation either through a collecting tin in a shop, a cheque in the post, or an on-line donation. Our work will not stop during this crisis and we intend to be here working for animals in need when this is over.

Special appeal

We are looking for a very special home for this wonderful pair. Sadly Badger and Roman are carriers of CALICIVIRUS (FCV). FCV is a contagious virus that is one of the major causes of upper respiratory infections or cat flu. They need to find a home that will take them both and where they can be the only pets. They both love to play with toys, Badger loves a lazer pen and Roman loves the toys on a string. They are both have a very sweet nature and deserve a chance to find a home of their own.

If you can help by offering them a home or sponsoring this lovely pair then please call us on 01931 716 114.


Mitch is a handsome one year old lurcher who is looking for a child-free home with someone who can help him with his basic training and build his confidence. Once he gets to know people he is a fun loving, affectionate pup.

Contrary to popular belief lurchers don't need hours and hours of high energy exercise. Regular walks, mental stimulation, and access to warm, comfy places to snooze are what this intelligent hound needs.

Please call 01931 716 114 if you think you can offer him a comfortable sofa in the perfect home.

Barney the Bunny

Barney is a friendly 18 month old bunny who is looking for a home. He'd like to be an only bunny and isn't keen on being picked up so needs a home with adults or a family with older children.


Benji is a 5 year old Chihuahua Terrier Cross who is looking for a very special person. He needs an experienced owner in a child and pet free home who can make several visits to the centre to get to know him and earn his trust. He tends to bond very strongly with one person and is affectionate and loyal once he does, but can be territorial and aggressive towards people he doesn't know so time, patience, and understanding will be essential.

If you think you could be the right person for Benji please give us a call on 01931 716 114.
