Hula - Animals

 

HULA Animal Rescue is a small registered charity that has been helping animals and their owners since 1972. The charity has had a few names in the past such as the South Midlands Animal Sanctuary and the Bedfordshire Home for Unwanted and Lost Animals, but as this was rather a mouthful has been shortened to HULA.

 

·         HULA has re-homed many thousands of animals since it was founded

·         The average length of stay at HULA is one to two months before being re-homed

·         HULA has a non-destruction policy and never put an animal to sleep unless for physical or psychological health reasons

·         All animals are neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, vet checked and wormed

·         HULA receives no Government funding and is an independent charity

 

The Charity's work
