Happy New Year to all our Supporters from everyone at Bleakholt. You have been amazing and we couldn’t do it without you. Here’s to a successful 2018 and the next 60 years and beyond! Thank you everyone!

Committed to Caring

Nestled on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Irwell valley, Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary is a charity committed to caring for dogs, cats, equine and farm animals and small pets.

Our aim is to find happy, loving homes for our dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals and those that cannot be re-homed will spend the rest of their days in our care along with our equine and farm animals.

On a cold Winter’s day the ‘Bleak’ in Bleakholt really means something!  However our staff and volunteers are relentless in their dedication to care for our animals and none of this would be possible without your support.

Looking to adopt?

Here are just a selection of the animals recently added to the site. To see all the animals available please go to the Adoption menu at the top of this page and select either Dog, Cat or Small Animal.

Stables & Farm

Bleakholt is not just a Sanctuary for animals that can be re-homed. We also provide a loving and safe environment for the retirement of a large number of Equine and Farm animals. These two groups are a very important part of what we do here and the animals will spend the rest of their lives in our care.

Take a tour around these parts of our Sanctuary and see for yourselves how wonderful life is here!
