Locally based animal rescue centre are hoping to raise £20,000 after Covid pressure rises

HULA Animal Rescue have taken a huge knock from the Covid Pandemic and it is now having an impact on the future care of animals in need.

The charity are hoping to raise £20,000 which will help to cover 6 months of Vet bills.

The charity have set up a JustGiving page to receive donations. On their page they posted a heartfelt message.

''Lets face it, 2020 has been a bad year.

Businesses, shops, schools, cafes, young people, old people have all been affected and sadly so have animals. HULA has taken in 96 animals since the lockdown restrictions were eased many of whom have needed vet care and attention.

HULA Animal Rescue is fundraising to raise £20,000 which will assist with approximately 6 months of vet bills.

It feels like weve been hit twice an increase in animals needing high veterinary care and therefore high vet bills at a time where fundraising and income is down. Vet bills can reach £4000 a month, which is no small amount to find.

Since arriving at HULA in July friendly and sweet boy Zeus has needed surgery to fix a torn ligament in his knee, a fairly serious operation that requires a strict post-surgical rest period. Zeus, a Dutch Herder, who arrived at HULA as his owner was unable to manage him along with her own health issues has cost the charity £3,500 and his treatment is far from over; more X-rays are booked and more surgery may be on the cards. Another HULA emergency rescue Eros, a homeless kitten, recently cost HULA £608 due to extreme dehydration and malnutrition on arrival and these are not unusual occurrences.

Its not just the medical emergencies that rack up the bills. Routine operations such as spays and neuters can cost HULA anywhere from £50 for a simple cat castrate to £300 for a large dog spay. During the last 3 months HULA has paid £1162 for necessary dentals.

Please help us by donating whatever you can to our appeal. If you would like to hold your own fundraisers (with appropriate covid measures of course!) then please do let us know as wed love to shout about them on our social media.''
