Newport Pagnell Carnival

Newport Pagnell carnival poster for HULA dog show


Thank you to Homebase for volunteering june 2015


Cisaro Concert

On the 7th of June some kind and very talented people came together in a beautiful venue for an evening of incredible music to raise money for HULA, and boy we were grateful that they did!

Many of our staff, volunteers and trustees were in the audience and had a wonderful evening. We cannot thank those involved enough.

The retiring collecting raised us £312.11 and the tombola raised a terrific £67. Not forgetting all the wonderful donations of pet food donated as an entrance "fee".

Thank you very much to everyone involved and everyone who attended, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Thank you to 9yr old Jade Redford.

On 22nd June Jade raised us an incredible £225 by doing a sponsored silence! She lasted 11 hours – which meant getting through school, guitar lessons and brownies all without saying a word!

Well done Jade and a huge thank you for raising money for HULA.



Templefield Lower School

Photo of post-it note saying thank you
With massive thanks to Mrs Wright and the youngsters at Templefield Lower school who recently raised £36.62 for HULA in one of their classes as an end of topic project.

If you didn’t already guess it, the topic was “animals” and the children learnt about adoption and care of animals and ‘rehomed’ some toy animals to raise money.

What a great project and thank you everyone for taking part and raising funds for HULA.



Thank you Karen & Delia

Karen Baker and her lovely sister Delia have raised us £209 by holding a tombola and charity stall at their local village fete in Oxhey near Watford.

By all accounts Delia is very creative and her lovely hampers and decorated baskets were a big success!

Thank you so much for raising funds on our behalf!



A helping hand from Vauxhall

We would like to say a big thank you to Vauxhall and their staff for volunteering here at the Centre for the day and achieving many jobs we just don't seem to have the time to do!

The guys did a fabulous job of clearing our dutch barn and also helping with some other odd jobs. The best part though I am sure was grooming the ponies, pigs and goats for us!

Thank you everyone for all your hard work

Pizza & Quiz

Pizza and a quiz, we can't think of anything better and it seems we aren't the only ones!

Sian Lewis along with Pat and Neil recently organised a Pizza and Quiz night to raise funds for HULA, well a whopping £547 was raised which is just amazing!

We would also like to say a thank you to Jean from Bletchley who did the teas and coffees and also Stephanie and Kay who sold the raffle tickets on the night.

Sian dropped in to HULA with the raised funds and met George who has recently had an operation costing around £600, so you can see the money will go to good use!

"On behalf of all my friends at HULA I'd like to say a massive thank you to all the staff and customers at Pets at Home stores who have chosen HULA to support for your VIP card points.

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 Appeal

A 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.

Photo of Kia the dog

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!


My Ideal Home

Please contact us on 01908 584000 if you think Kia could be the girl for you?

Pedigree


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.
