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. As with all our animals, some of them are rescued from an unsuitable environment or living conditions and some come to us as their owners are no longer able to look after them, but whatever their circumstances their welfare is our primary concern.
Some of our farm animals have medical conditions, some of them may need ongoing medication and care for life, but we happily take them on to transform their quality of life and to give them the chance they need for a happy and fulfilling life at Bleakholt. In return of course, we get plenty of loving back and they never cease to amuse us in the process!
Bleakholt has been home to a variety of farm and small animals since the very early days of the Sanctuary. Our small animals are available for rehoming, the main small animals we help are rabbits but we also help Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils, Rats, Degu’s, Chinchillas and any other small animal that needs our help.
Our larger residents include:
