Can you help Jacob help HULA?

Photo Jacob the cat
Despite, being partially sighted Jacob is the cattery clown! Always making the staff and volunteers laugh, this friendly well natured cat is always looking for fuss, cuddles and a good time. He loves being in the outdoor run at HULA.

Jacob can’t repay HULA Animal Rescue but would love you to help him, on his behalf. Help us raise £150,000 to support rescue homes throughout the UK by simply shopping at Tesco (instore or online at www.tesco.com) between 27th April and 17th May. Purchase any Tesco own label Petcare products or any of these brands; Pedigree, Whiskas, Cesar, Sheba or Dreamies and together we will support rescue homes and give that forever loving homes to pets like Jacob.

Have a look here for more information.

Are you a Pet's at Home customer? Please don't forget to sign up to the VIP Card scheme (ask in store for more details), not only do you get lots of lovely benefits for yourself, but you help raise money for charities like HULA too!

We're very grateful that we recently collected items we purchased with our recent voucher totaling just over £400!! This is a massive amount for us and helps us purchase the things we really need.... and often leaves us a little to buy some treats for the animals too.

This time, along with much needed puppy pads, training long lines, frozen dog food and feliway refills, we also got some toys and chewy toys for the small animals in the small animal house.

THANK YOU Pets at Home VIP Charity Scheme

Thank you Mars Petcare and Tesco

Imagine this.. You have just had to cancel a series of Open Days that are key to fundraising for HULA as the awful weather has rendered your field unable to park your valued visitors and supporters. You are thinking what you can do, to encourage our wonderful supporters to keep helping HULA.

You then receive a telephone call from Andrew Winfrow, Charities Manager at Pedigree to say that Tesco’s and Mars Petcare are to partner to "raise awareness of Pets in Need" and that this very unique event is taking place from 27th April 2016 to 19th May 2016.

Well as you can imagine we were delighted to hear this but even more delighted & excited to learn that HULA and seven other charities have been selected to benefit from this fabulous initiative.

So we all hope that you will support HULA by getting involved in the Pedigree/Tesco initiative to support rescue homes.

How can you get involved?

Between 27th April 2016 to 19th May 2016 every time you purchase Tesco own label, Pedigree, Whiskas, Sheba or Cesar pet care products at your local Tesco, the wonderful people there will donate 1p to be split between the lucky charities who have been selected.

How fantastic is that? As you know only too well, every penny helps. As you will see from the poster below the aim is to raise a staggering £150,000 to support rescue homes.

Everyone at HULA would like to extend sincere thanks to Pedigree and Tesco for thinking of us and nominating us to be part of their initiative to support rescue homes up and down the country.

Super Support from Santander

Image of Santander bank logo
Hula was founded in 1972 and moved to Glebe Farm in 1977. At that time the site was derelict and had been unused for some years. There wasn’t even a road to drive from the main gate to the centre. With lots of hard work a road was built and over the years repairs have been carried out to try and keep the surface smooth and usable.

Image of Santander employees volunteering at HULA
With the recent bad weather we found that a huge number of new pot holes appeared and it’s been a mammoth task to try and keep them filled and maintain the road to a good standard. In total, we were faced with 68 potholes to fill and fifty bags of tarmac to move. As you can imagine this is a huge task so we appealed for help.

We were absolutely delighted when the Finance team from Santander, who have their headquarters in Milton Keynes; contacted us and said those magical words ‘we would love to help’.

Jarrod from Santander visited the site and saw the extent of the work and then rallied his team. We were delighted to welcome 20 Santander employees who carried out the following jobs on Wednesday March 16th:- Photo of Santander employees volunteering at HULA We are so grateful and extend our sincere thanks to the hardworking employees from Santander who picked HULA for their Community day - without them we really could not have achieved such terrific results. The whole team all wore a smile whilst braving the cold and nothing was too much trouble, it was such a pleasure to have them join the HULA Team for the day.

Here’s what the Santander Team said about joining the HULA Team for the day..

Lisa Sparks – ‘Although it was a cold day, it was good fun and all the staff there were very helpful’

Lisa Trigger –‘It was a really lovely day!! Can we do it again?’ :)

Jarrod Glover – ‘HULA are a fantastic local charity and we welcomed the opportunity to support them with our Discovery Day. The HULA team were fantastic, very supportive and welcoming and this was reflected by the huge effort from the Santander team; working beyond the allotted time and providing personal donations of over £70 to fund additional materials”.

Thank you so much Santander we are extremely grateful for your help and support.

A belated thank you

Photo of HULA's Laura Randall receving Pets at home cheque
During December 2015, Support Adoption worked so hard and organised the Santa Paws Appeal with a target to provide over ONE MILLION meals to provide meals to homeless and abandoned Animals. This target was exceeded and over one and a half million meals were donated.

As a Support Adoption partner we were delighted to be given the opportunity to take part and visit our local Pets at Home stores and this year we were also chosen by the lovely team at Pets at home Bletchley. Because of their hard work with Support Adoption For Pets we were recently awarded a cheque for £950.68.

We really can't say thank you enough!

Barrel Bikers

It's with sincere gratitude that we say a massive thanks to Barrel Bikers who paid us a visit recently and brought us a MOUNTAIN of food, donations, office supplies etc, to help HULA and our animals.

It was very exciting having you all on site and it was great to meet you all!
