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.

The Bolton News: 1

Gemini is a ten month old male. 
He is very handsome and has a lovely coat and colouring, he is fit, well, very lively and full of mischief. 
Gemini has been neutered so we would like to find him a home with some company and plenty of space to play about in.

The Bolton News: Tab

Titch is a pretty young girl who came to us as a pregnant stray, all her kittens have new homes and Titch is now looking for one of her own.

She will needs an understanding home where she can be her to her own devices as Titch hasn’t had much human interaction before coming to us and so is very wary of people.

We feel that Titch would benefit from living with another compatible cat in an adult only environment with no dogs. She would be most suitable to be rehomed to a farm or a small holding as she is feral and has lived on the streets so is used to this type of environment.

The Bolton News: Smokey

Smokey came to us when his owner was going into a care home but with him originally a stray, we think that he would be best suited to a home where he can be left to his own devices and not be forced into human contact, a farm or small holding is the best option for Smokey as he can be very scared.

Stefani is female dwarf, she is around three-and-a half years old and has recently been neutered.

Her previous owner’s health problems meant they could not keep her so she needs a new home.

She is a little shy and timid at first so would suit a quiet home hopefully with the company of another rabbit.
