We are based in Co.Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.
Bright Eyes was established in 1989, formerly registered with HMRC as a charity and reregistered with the Northern Ireland Charity Commission in 2016.
Our main purpose is a reduction in unnecessary suffering and distress of companion animals through the provision of a rescue and re-homing service. We provide a sanctuary for the care, protection, treatment and temporary or permanent accommodation of such animals.
We rely heavily on volunteers to help with the running of the sanctuary and in return we provide social support, education, mental support and animal welfare training (in some cases leading to employment in a related field or academic qualifications). We have undertaken intensive feral cat neutering and spaying over the years resulting in a noticeable reduction in feral cat population. We operate a no kill policy at Bright Eyes and if an animal for any reason cannot get a home it will have shelter here with us for life. We receive no government funding and rely purely on the generosity of the public to help us continue our work. Rehoming from us All animals rehomed from us are neutered/spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and deflead Please see page with animals that need a home and relevant application form.
