Animal Care is a very busy animal rescue charity (registered). We have been helping animals since 1978. We take unwanted and abandoned animals in from all over the North West and look after them until we can find them loving new homes. We save predominantly dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents and birds. We rehome over 1000 animals every year.  We are the only rescue in this area which can help dogs and small animals so we are always very busy and always very full.  We also rehome ex battery hens, and have two resident goats which we saved from slaughter.  In addition to this we have a wildlife rehabilitation centre, where we take in injured wildlife, which we care for and release after recovery.

The Blea Tarn Kennels are usually open 365 days a year focussing on finding new homes for stray dogs and cats and miscellaneous small animals. They are always looking to recruit volunteers for a very wide range of tasks, from dog walking and cat-cuddling to charity shop-sorting.
