The aim of this year’s campaign is to promote the message that "every dog deserves a loving home" to raise awareness regarding the number of stray dogs in the UK, and the number that sadly through no fault of their own are put to sleep as there is not a rescue able to take them.
The latest edition of the Closer magazine has a feature profiling four of our lovely dogs with some wonderful photography.
Since the photographs were taken Roxy, Jax and Charlie have successfully found new homes however Jason and Max are still looking.
Now very happy in his own home Oscar (formerly known as Kaiser) spent many many months at HULA. You can read the full Citizen article here.

We have recevied the great news that HULA has been awarded a £5,000 grant from the 2011 Pedigree Adoption Drive. This will be used to improve the lives of dogs in our care.
Funding comes at a crucial time, as rescue centres like our own are continuing to face increasing pressures, with the number of stray and abandoned dogs in the UK reaching their highest in over a decade.
The Pedigree Adoption Drive works in association with the Petplan Charitable Trust and seeks to raise funds to help find stray and abandoned dogs new and loving homes. This year’s campaign has raised over £160,000 to help rescue centres just like HULA to continue the work we do with abandoned dogs. All of the funds raised have been distributed through a grant system which will benefit shelters belonging to the Association of Dog and Cat Homes.
Katie Wragg, Marketing Manager for The Pedigree Adoption Drive said: “In the last four years we’ve raised over £1million for rescue centres supporting the country’s abandoned dogs and despite the tough economic climate, the amazing public reaction has enabled us to really make a difference to the lives of abandoned dogs across the UK and help give them a bright future.”
