Information and Enquiry Form
Animal Refuge Furness, Barrow-In-Furness – The Animal Refuge Furness has been involved with animal welfare in the Barrow-in-Furness area for over 30 years. A registered charity, we work in the Barrow area to find new homes for stray and abandoned animals. Dogs – Animal Refuge support the dogs in Barrow Borough Pound. When a dog is handed in or taken into the pound by the local Council, the council have to keep them for seven days.

To stop these dogs from being killed, Animal Refuge take over all expenses for these dogs. after the first seven days. Local councils elsewhere across the UK kill thousands of dogs every year Cats – We also have plenty of cats in our care waiting for a new home. Some have been here for years. You can meet them here.
