Make a real difference to the lives of our animals NOW! We desperately need VOLUNTEERS for our 2 Charity Shops to ensure their success in raising much needed funds.

This is so important to us and we simply cannot do this without YOU.

Every little helps, so just bring a bucketful of enthusiasm and have some fun!

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!
