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?

You can see a selection of our animals that are available for adoption on this site and get some basic information about them. You may also see a ‘home profile’ where we outline the kind of home that would be suitable for that dog, e.g. older children only, no other animals etc. In these cases they are not merely recommendations as it is important for us to ensure that we do not put animals into homes that are inappropriate and also that you get the pet that is right for you.

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!
