Dawn CargillHULA lost a valued supporter recently and we would like to send our sincere condolences to Dawn Cargill's family and friends. We would also like to sincerely thank them for the very generous donations made to HULA Animal Rescue in memory of Dawn.
"Dawn Cargill was a beautiful spirit. Kind, generous, helpful and just a brilliant person to know. She had a most wicked sense of humour and an infectious laugh.
She was passionate in her love of animals - particularly dogs - and her two Pomeranians: Honey and Daisy, were her children. She would attend every companion dog show that she could and if her own dogs came home with a rosette then she was more than a little happy. Instantly recognisable with a ready smile and her camera, she'd be there in wind, rain or shine cheering everyone on.
Not only did she attend the shows, she also organised a number of them and HULA was one of the charities that benefited from her endeavours.
Sadly, at only 48 years old, Dawn lost her life on the 6th November this year. She will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved her."
Christmas is coming … the season of good will or is it?Despite much publicity and warnings, companion animals will still be given as presents this Christmas.
If we look at the HULA picture today we are currently full & have the following guests in our care :-
- 17 Dogs
- 15 Cats/kittens
- 14 Small animals
- Owner moving into rented accommodation
- Owner had no time to care dues to ill health or work commitments
- Owner moving home
- Owner had a baby
- Result of an accidental mating
- Owners tired of them
On our waiting lists to come in through no fault of their own we have :-
- 52 Dogs
- 53 Cats
- 51 Small animals
So please, before you think of giving a companion animal as a Christmas gift, think of those on our waiting list, think of those facing an uncertain future in pounds up and down the country.
Every animal deserves a loving forever home and we spend every day working towards helping as many as we possibly can.Larry, Angel and Thunder pictured here are just three of our lovely guests and are all hoping that 2015 brings a forever home and that more animals living in difficult circumstances can be helped.
If you would like to make a donation towards HULA’s work please do visit our Just Giving page.
