BLEAKHOLT Animal Sanctuary volunteers said that they are in need of loving owners for the sanctuary’s abandoned pets.

If you could re-home an animal you would be giving it an extra chance in life and a comfortable forever-home.

Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary manager Karen Weed said that admissions are still coming in during lockdown and is urging people to get in touch.

She said: “Whilst we are currently closed and unable to have visitors on site, we will be taking applications for our dogs and cats. 

“Once we are able to start booking visitors in, we will contact you to arrange an appointment.

“We believe that every animal deserves a second chance and this means we often take in animals that have health conditions or are elderly.”

“We continue to support these animals in homes so they have a better chance at finding that special forever home.”

To make an application for one of the animals visit, fill out the application form, mention the animal’s name and email it to

Here are this week’s pets in need of re-homing, each described by Karen Weed.


The Bolton News:

Charlie is a curvy lady who is quite shy when she first meets you but is lovely once you gain her trust. Charlie has a hyperthyroid condition.

She needs daily medication for this which she takes easily on her food, she will need blood tests every three months to check the medication is working. 
We think Charlie would be best suited to a quiet home where she is the only pet because of her timid nature.

Mitzy- Maria came to Bleakholt as her owner had dementia and couldn’t continue to care for her. 

She is a 10 - year-old female who is full of personality. 
Mitzy is a full time princess and wants a new home all to herself. 

She doesn’t like other cats or dogs. 
Older children would be best due to her sassy nature. 

She may swipe at you and has a lot to say for herself but she is a loving lady when she wants to be.
