24 March – COVID-19 UPDATE: Following the latest Government update we have had to close our doors completely. Only Staff are allowed on site, so regretfully we cannot allow our wonderful Team of Volunteers to come & help us. We thank them for their dedication.

We can no longer offer appointments for adoption until further notice and this will be reviewed in 3 weeks.

We would like to thank all our wonderful supporters, please take care of yourselves and others and we wish everyone good health.

26 March – Regretfully we have had to reduce the hours we are able to take your phone calls. There will only be someone available from 10 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. each day. It may take a little longer to answer emails.

We are doing everything we can to protect our Staff and prioritise the welfare of our animals and we are all getting stuck in to make sure this happens. Our dedicated Staff have been truly remarkable and are doing a magnificent job – we couldn’t ask for more.

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?

To see all the animals available please click on the images below or 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!
