HULA - Giving Back to an Animal Rescue
As you all know, I am volunteering since now 6 years at the HULA Animal Rescue, taking photos of their dogs and cats, looking for their forever home. Animal Rescues like HULA doing an amazing job, but as you might know, they also rely very much on what people can give. So with this in mind, here are two links for the HULA Animal Rescue, which shows some of their items they need.
The Amazon Wish List - HULA Wish List
Donate - Just Giving
Already a big Thank You to all of you. Even if you can give only £1, every little bit will help to give the HULA Residents a wonderful Christmas Time.
