Humbug is missing
Humbug is very nervous and is not very well handled. Her owners haven't had her long and she bolted through her fencing into Bow Brickhill Woods on the 27th May.
If you do spot Humbug please contact HULA who will pass on any sightings to her owners.
Bolt has something he'd like to say...
We recently received a voucher for £442! Hopefully these HULA humans will buy us all something nice. I'm sure they will.
Word on the kennel street is that the items are due to arrive this week. So I'll have a root through the things and let you know what they chose! Thank you!!"

Special AppealA special appeal for Kia, Gorgeous Boxer Cross Female, aged 5 who has been overlooked for too long.
Back in July 2014 Novak Djokovic won the men’s title at Wimbledon & the Football world Cup was taking place....
Meanwhile here at HULA our news was that on July 9th a beautiful dog by the name of Kia arrived in our care. Kia has been a stray and had sadly found herself in a dog pound and faced an uncertain future. The wonderful people at Safe & Sound appealed for a rescue space for Kia and the next minute she was HULA bound. When she arrived she was quite subdued but soon she began to flourish she was very strong on the lead but after lots of training and TLC Kia settled in at HULA.
Once she had finished her assessment and went up for adoption we thought she would have lots of enquiries and that Kia would soon be leaving us. Sadly this was not the case and Kia is still here at HULA. She loves her life at HULA and spends time in our quiet rooms and she is a huge help in reception where she fulfils the role of Girl Friday and meeter and greeter. Despite this that forever home has proved to be elusive.
Kia has spent some time away from the centre recently as we wanted to give her a little mini break and here is what her foster mum had to say:-
"Having Kia for the weekend was an absolute pleasure. Kia was such a well behaved house guest and we loved having her"
As much as we have enjoyed the pleasure of Kia’s company for the last 302 days we really would love to see Kia in a loving new home before her first anniversary at HULA arrives.
Here are a few words from the beautiful lady herself:-
Hi everyone, my name is Kia and I’m looking for my forever home.
The team at HULA doesn’t have any background history on me as I was a stray, however they have found me to be a very sweet girl and they know I love human company. I love being out and about but I will need to go to training classes. I do pull a lot on my lead...what can I say, I’m excited to be out, so I’ll need training on this too.
I can be quite bossy around other dogs so would like to be the only dog in the house. The team here is socializing me with other dogs though. There’s nothing I love more than my food, so show me food and I'll show you the love!

As I am sure most of you are aware we have had an enormous amount of support over the years from Pedigree. This has been through their Adoption drives and also their "Feeding brighter futures" campaign where our dogs were fed their new brand called Pedigree Vital for a whole 2 years.
Well the support doesn't end there, look at what came through the post for our HULA doggies to wear for the next few winters! We received 3 HUGE boxes in lots of different sizes to cater for all.
We are so grateful for this support and cannot thank the team at Pedigree enough for their continued support to HULA. Our dogs are now as "snug as bugs in rugs" on these cold days!
We think you'll agree they look very smart.
Thank you Pedigree UK.
