About Us

The Animal Lodge

Animal Lodge, Lancashire’s Premier Pet Holiday Home, set in approximately 10 acres of privately owned countryside on the edge of the Ribble Valley.

In accordance with new legislation relating to the Licensing of Activities Involving Animals from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Hyndburn Borough Council have awarded Animal Lodge with a 5 star rating

We offer accommodation for up to 70 dogs, 40 cats plus small pets and birds. All pet accommodation exceeds space requirements and benefits from central heating. Each cat chalet boasts indoor and outdoor space, with scratching posts, hiding places and climbing trees. Our dog kennels also exceed the required dimensions and also have indoor space and an outdoor run.

Outside we have three large field areas for exercising and playing with your pets including free running if required and also a river for those who want to get wet and muddy. The revamped ménage has created a great secure run for the smaller dogs as well as a wet weather play area and holding area during busy change over periods.

The People

Every team member at Animal Lodge is an animal lover. But, being an animal lover isn’t enough to work here.

We’re so proud of each one of them and the qualifications they hold that they are available for all to see in our reception. Furthermore, each trainee or volunteer are provided, monitored and assessed by the local education departments as part of their animal care or veterinary courses.
