A visit from local Guides
The 1st Woburn Sand Guides unit had a VIP tour around the site by staff members Susan Willet and Sarah Tester. They enjoyed their time at HULA and have sent us some pictures.
We were also very grateful for the kind donation from the guides.
Newport Pagnell CarnivalMassive thank you to everyone who came to see us at Newport Pagnell's carnival where we had a stand.
A hugh thank you too to our team of ever willing volunteers who, without, events like this would not be possible.
Each lead carries a special message such as "Nervous", "Friendly" or "No Dogs" which we think is a brilliant idea for dogs who may need some special attention when out and about.
If you would like to know more about Jenny and the work that she does to see if your doggie friend would benefit then please visit her website. You can also find Jenny’s details on our Useful Links page.
A Purrrfect Open Day at HULAFelines had their turn in the spotlight at Sunday’s Purrfect Open Day at HULA, along with the usual fun stalls, delicious home-made refreshments and of course the popular dog parade featuring pooches looking for a loving home. Newly renovated café ‘The Trough’ was busy serving up hot and cold drinks and a wonderful selection of cakes which were baked and donated by talented volunteers.
Long and short haired, kittens and senior cats, the fabulous residents of HULA’s cattery are hoping to find a permanent home soon. If you are interested in a purrfect addition to your family, then please consider one of our rescue cats. Prospective cat pawrents are subject to introductions and a home check. Cats must be homed at least five miles away from their previous address, if known, and preferably away from busy A roads. Full details of each moggy and the sort of home he or she needs can be found on the cattery page.
Once again from the cats, other animals and the staff, huge thanks to all the volunteers who made the Purrfect Open Day a success, and of course to the many visitors who joined us on Sunday. Your support helps us in our vital work to care for and rehome stray and unwanted animals.
We hope you had fun and look forward to seeing you in July at our next Open Day!
A much needed makeover
We are very happy to show off our refurbished caravan!
Thanks to a lovely family, who adopted a dog named Reece from us last year, Dimmock Construction Ltd and some hard working volunteers and staff our caravan is now back in business!
As always, we're moved by people's generosity and hard work and are sincerely grateful. How long before a dog is snoozing on the sofa?!
An unusual appeal
We are in need of broom heads and lots of them, so if you have a discarded broom at home then we would love to have it.
....and speaking of our farm animals it's been a busy time for the HULA sheep.
Last week it was time for the sheep to have their annual hair cut! Sheep shearing is a quite an art and we call in the specialist for this. 3 sacks of wool later and our sheep are all ready for the summer!
Pets at Home VIP PointsAs you may already know you can nominate HULA as your chosen charity for the Pets at Home VIP card. This means we get a little bit of money each time you purchase items from the store.
As you can see we had a field day at Pets at Home in Aylesbury and have purchased many enrichment items for the animals.
