Our Story

Who We Are

Fenland Animal Rescue is a registered charity, founded in 2015. The charity was started by Joshua, a Cambridgeshire local that found himself wanting to do more to help those without a voice. After realising that animal organisations and Emergency Services in the county were at breaking point, Joshua designed and created an additional specialist rescue service in the local area could be useful to both the public, other charities/organisations and the emergency services.

We provide a safe haven and sanctuary for all animals, wild and domestic and rehabilitate them to allow them to have a second chance at life.

We provide these services in the Fenland area, which covers the area between Peterborough, Huntingdon, Cambridge and Kings Lynn.

We run our own foster and adoption programme that allows animals to find a loving home to happily live out their lives.

We Run Entirely on Public Donations,

Our Services

Fenland Animal Rescue provides the emergency service for animals within the county of Cambridgeshire. Our primary aim is to ensure the safety of animals in need, but also to make sure emergency appliances are readily available for emergency situations. Fenland Animal Rescue is a service designed to alleviate the strain placed on emergency services that costs the taxpayer thousands of pounds each month in animal related incidents. By tackling animal related incidents with the further training, knowledge and skill set to provide the best outcome possible for the animal in need. Whilst working closely with emergency services, vets and other animal organisations, we are able to provide the safest and most efficient rescue for the animal in question and minimise the stress or trauma caused throughout the rescue and recovery process.

Whether it be anything from a cat stuck in a tree, a dog underground, a horse in water or wildlife injured on the water way, fenland animal rescue can see to the animal and then transport the animal directly to the appropriate safe place or veterinary care with minimal stress caused.

I contacted F.A.R after a mother squirrel was hit by a car whilst carrying a young baby. The team arrived quickly and were able to search tree tops extremely high up for any other orphans. The team then took the recovered orphan back to the centre for rehabilitation. I would highly recommend these guys to everyone and anyone!

I telephone Fenland Animal Rescue, the responder arrived within the hour, unfortunately it was a sad outcome for the bird, but it was extremely reassuring to know that there was someone out there with a great understanding of these animals. Their knowledge was great and they were a real help to me and the bird. I will definitely be saving their number!
