Bridget & Kia...what a match!

Kia is currently looking for a home and Bridget Davey is a fantastic photographer who very kindly gives up her time to come along and take the most wonderful photographs of the guests in our care.

Bridget dedicates so much time to helping rescues and giving them the benefit of her superb photographic skills. We are often visited by potential adopters who comment on Bridget's pictures and her work has been responsible for lots of animals finding their new homes.

How lucky are we to have such a wonderful friend as Bridget who braved the icy wind for us recently...well our Kia certainly thinks so....

Why not take a look at Bridget's website and see more of her wonderful work.

So on behalf of Kia and all of her HULA friends... THANK YOU BRIDGET

Last year some fantastic individuals, Janine and Kevin, along with 2 others cycled from John O'Groats to Land's End in September to raise money for HULA Animal Rescue.

They also raised money throughout this event for another fantastic charity Cry. The total they raised was over two thousand pounds and we're so very grateful... and very impressed with this feat!!!

They presented the cheque to us before Christmas and have just sent us some pics of their trip.

Well done and thank you!

Thank goodness for Micro chips

This little fella made a mad dash from his home and was picked up by two kind gentleman after being spotted taking himself for a walk. All this whilst his worried owner was searching for him!

Photo of microchipped dog happily reunited with his owner
Fortunately, he was picked up by lovely people who brought him to HULA. We are not able to take in strays but we were able to scan to see if he had been chipped.

We were all delighted that he had a chip and most importantly that his contact details were up to date. As this was the case we were able to contact his worried Dad immediately and the two were soon happily reunited.

If this little chap had not been micro chipped, or the details had not of been up to date, then the dog warden would have had to take him away to the local stray kennels and he would of stood much less chance of being reunited.

Please please make sure that your pets are micro chipped. HULA are happy to micro chip your pets for a fee of £15, just call us to make an appointment. Also, if your pet is already chipped why not take a few minutes to check that all of your contact telephone numbers are up to date so we can have more happy reunions like this.

New Year's Day Walk

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers who heled us out by taking the dogs offsite for a lovely long walk... It may have helped them also blow away the hangovers.

We would also like to thank all the volunteers who have helped us throughout the festive season and the year of 2014 - we couldn't do it without you all.

A very special gift

Recently Samantha Gomez turned 10 years old. Instead of presents for herself she asked her friends and family for gifts and donations for the animals of HULA Animal Rescue.

Samantha's friends and family were so very generous and Samantha paid us a visit to donate the items to us.

We cannot thank Samantha and those who donated items to her for us enough.

It was a pleasure to meet Samantha and her Mum and our animals are very excited to receive these items at Christmas!

Staffies. They're softer than you think

On Sunday 12th October we held our monthly open day. As you may be aware we have teamed up with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to launch the Staffies. They're Softer Than You Think campaign.

We were so delighted to team up with such a fantastic and dedicated rescue and we are also delighted to have had such wonderful support from Staffie and non Staffies owners that afternoon.

It was great to see so many loved Staffies and we have a few picture for you to see.
