Up n Over AgilityWe would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the Up N Over Agility Dog Training Club for donating a wonderful £200 to HULA.
Everyone at HULA is so very grateful for your support.
A home for BarryCould Barry be the boy for you? Our Barry very sadly gets overlooked and we can’t understand why.
"Barry has so many friends here at HULA. He's everyone's favourite. From the minute you see his cheeky little face staring up at you, you will be smitten.
Barry is the 'demonstration' dog we always use when introducing new volunteers to the art of putting a harness on a dog. Does he jump around and bark like some of his doggy friends, ensuring the volunteers don't stand a chance of putting the harness on? Well of course not! Barry stands still, lifts his paws and seems to understand that the sooner the harness is on, the sooner walkies begin.
Sometimes we are joined by Queenie the American bulldog who likes to walk up front and Barry is quite happy to follow on behind. If we happen to pass someone he knows - a member of staff or volunteer - or even someone he doesn't know, they are always greeted with a friendly tail wag.
So why is Barry still at HULA? Because he's a Staffie and a little grey around the muzzle. Get to know him though and you'll realise he's a Super Staffie! And did I mention his curly tail - so cute."
Take a look for yourself. You'll be smitten too!
Huge thanks to PedigreeWe would like to say a huge thank you to Pedigree who very kindly donated a huge van load of Chappie dog food to us for which we are very grateful.
Thank you Pedigree from everyone at HULA
MK Re-Use Community ProjectThank you to Milton Keynes Re-use Community Project.
We recently put out an appeal for a second hand washing machine and we were delighted to be contacted by Margaret and John from the Milton Keynes Re-use Community Project whose words were music to our ears. Not only could they help us with a washing machine but Margaret, John and their fabulous customers had very kindly organised a brand new washing machine for us!
We popped along to meet them and took delivery of a fabulous new machine which has immediately been put to use in our laundry.
On behalf of everyone at HULA Animal Rescue we would like extend our huge and sincere thanks to everyone at MK Re-use who are based in Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes for their kindness and generosity.
Why not visit their website.

Thank you again for your kindness which is really appreciated by everyone at HULA.
Thank you Santander!We would like to say a huge thank you to Santander and their Quality Team who helped to build a new home for our resident geese, Bazza and Wilma.
It rained (of course) and due to essential maintenance taking place we were without electricity for a few hours so we couldn’t even make them a hot drink in the afternoon, but they persevered and we now have two very happy geese.
We are very grateful to Santander for allowing their employees to come along and join the HULA team for the day.
Thank you everyone for your hard work, help and enthusiasm.
Thank you!We have some wonderful volunteers at HULA who help us in a variety of activities from attending to our animal’s needs to raising funds for HULA, especially at our Fete and Dog Show events. Many thanks to each and every one of you for all of your hard work – we really couldn’t continue our work without you.
Our September fete was a great success and our volunteer photographer, Bridget Davey has taken some lovely pictures of the day. Please click on this link to view and if you wish, buy them. The photographs will be available until the end of October 2016.
Our thanks also to Sarah Carter from Milton Keynes Veterinary Group for judging and sponsoring the dog show. The picture shows her presenting the prizes for Best in Show and Reserve prizes.
More thank yousFour cheers for four wonderful local companies and their hardworking employees who helped us prepare for and dismantle all our marquees and gazebos after our recent fete.
Hip, hip, hip, hip hooray to all of them!!
We are so grateful to the groups who helped us and we feel they all deserve a very special mention for all of their hard work in helping to make our Fete such a success.
Staff from Whiteclarke Group and Mazars came to HULA on the Friday before the big day to help erect the marquees and prepare the site. Luckily the weather was good unlike Saturday when the heavens opened! On Monday work groups from TSystems and Barclays visited and helped to take down the marquees and get Hula back to normal daily activities.
We thought you might like to see some of the photographs of the hard working teams that we took during these activities. Everyone at HULA extends a huge thank you to these wonderful people and their employers for allowing them to come and help us.
We really couldn’t have done it without them and it was a pleasure to have them join the HULA team!
Please could you help us with our Christmas Raffle?
