Check out our new 2022 Calendar


Our new 2022 Calendar is now available to be purchased either online or from our shop. They cost £10.00 (+p&p, if required) and all the profits from the sale of these calendars will be donated to the Shelter to help the animals in our care.

All the photos have been taken by Dave at Olive Paw Photography. 


Thank you to Pets at Home

Huge thanks to Chris, Alice and all at Pets at Home, Kendal, for voting us their Charity of the Year again for 2021.  Our rescue animals benefit directly from the team’s fundraising efforts on our behalf. 

Not only do we receive generous donations of food, but we also benefit when customers donate their points to help the cats and dogs in our care.


We are thrilled to have been selected as a Charity of the Year by Nutriment, supplier of top-quality raw food for cats and dogs. Call into our shop to learn more about raw feeding and how it is bringing health benefits to some of our Shelter animals.
