Message from the Chair of our Trustee Board:

2021 seems to be taking over where 2020 left off. We are now in our third national lock-down and although there is hope with the vaccine in the future we all have to cope with the difficulties before normal or even near normal life resumes.

For us as a Charity it means that many of our regular fund-raising sources are not available – our shop is closed and sadly so are many of the shops who kindly host our collecting tins. So the generous donations from our friends and supporters are more important than ever. Can I say a particular thank you to everybody who bought a calendar or Christmas Cards from us this year as it was our most successful campaign ever.

The terms of the Government lock-down means that we are not open to the public and we have no volunteers on site enabling us keep the risk of infection to a minimum. However, I would stress that if you are interested in adopting one of our animals you can complete and return an application form. It will have to be held over until the current restrictions are lifted but we are looking to find ways to keep prospective adopters involved.

Finally, I hope you like our new web site which is going to see some further interesting and informative developments going forward. So watch this space!

So please stay safe in the weeks ahead and we look forward to welcoming you back to Moorlands Head as soon as we can!


At Eden Animal Rescue we have a policy of never putting an animal to sleep unless a veterinary surgeon recommends it.

We've had dogs take as long as 18 months to find new homes and a number of cats have spent more than a year in our care. A few have even become permanent residents – Sparky, who was our office 'guard cat' for many years, was the most well-known!

No matter how busy we get or how long an animal has been with us we will continue to care for them.

We urgently need donations to help the animals in our care.

We are eligible for Amazon Smile donations, which come at no cost to you. Additionally, we would be very grateful if you are able to nominate us for the Ecclesiastical Movement for Good awards, which could win our centre £1,000.

Details of all the above as well as other ways you can help are available on our website.
