HULA gets a clean upDriveway Cleaning Solutions
Simon very kindly gave up his valuable time and visited HULA to clean all of our gutters and drains. Simon did a fantastic job and we are now all ready and prepared for those Autumn leaves.
Thank you Simon for all of your help it really is appreciated.
Well, yes. To be honest, you won’t hear us complaining. Because for every down moment, every "I’m sorry we cannot help you" you have to say, every animal you meet who’s clearly been abused, and you know full well there’s thousands out there who you just can’t help, you just can’t get to, there’s those moments when we receive an email from a previous HULA guest, who’s landed on their paws and is in a loving home. There are those moments where you get to spend 5 minutes with an animal who is simply grateful that they can trust you enough to enjoy a belly rub. When an animal who was a HULA guest years ago pops in to say “hello, look how happy I am, look how much my family loves me”. Obviously, it makes it all worth it.
They bake, they sell, they dress up, they shake the tin, they tombola, they raffle, they smile, they fundraise. All to help HULA help animals and they do it all simply trusting that their efforts will pay off. Well they do.
Sometimes people say to us “You do such a good job here”… “Keep up the good work” … “Thank you for all you do for these animals”. Please don’t thank us. We get our rewards. Help us to thank the people like Sharon and her team, for without them we couldn’t do what we do.
Sharon and her team’s recent efforts have raised us £2419.46 and we could not be more grateful. To see the work of the Support Adoption for Pets drive and to see how you can get involved please have a look at Support Adoption for Pets.
Thank you Noah's Ark
We are so happy that you thought of HULA and the animals will really appreciate your gifts.
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 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.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up and nominated HULA
