It’s unfortunate, but not surprising that rescue centres are struggling to make ends meet – battling a tide of irresponsible owners and abuse to help our animal friends.
Their efforts make such a difference to creatures who otherwise would be condemned to miserable lives bereft of love, comfort and safety.
Hula AnimalRescue are one
of the most prominent in our area, and on Sunday volunteers will once again throw open the doors of the centre in Aspley Guise, in the hope that you will spend some pennies and pounds to aid the cause.
The Summer Open Day will run between 1 and 4pm, giving you plenty of time to spend a few bob at the car boots sale, and over at the bazaar, and you can enjoy some cheeky, yummy refreshments while on site .
Dogs are welcome, so long as they are on leads and in a good mood, and of course you get to see the animals in need of forever homes.
Admission is £2 per adult with accompanied kids going free.
