HULA Animal Rescue has saved thousands of animals since it was founded, and offers an educational trip into the sad necessity to rescue animals, with plenty of happy, loved and rehabilitated furry guests to visit with.
HULA is a small registered charity that has been helping animals (and their owners), since 1972, and aims to relieve suffering and distress by providing care (and hopefully adoption) for unwanted domestic animals.
The centre takes in small animals such as guinea pigs, cats, rabbits, and dogs, larger animals like Shetland ponies, goats, and sheep, plus geese, chickens and ducks. They're all fairly adorable and it's a good way of gently rubbing home to kids the importance of treating helpless (and even non helpless!) animals with care and respect. There will be the odd sad story that will twinge kids' heartstrings (and yours!) but they are positive ones really as everyone you'll meet has been rescued! Expect a new interest in the RSPCA and similar afterwards, which isn't a bad thing!
HULA is an independent charity, and doesn't receive any Government funding, so please feel free to donate more than the small admission charge and maybe encourage kids to bring a little pocket change along so they can follow your good example!
Please note: some sat nav systems may take you to the south of Aspley Guise railway station. If so, cross the line away from the village, travel approx. three quarters of a mile and you'll find them just around the corner on the right hand side.

It's a rescue centre and not at all a petting farm. We saw an old horse, chickens, goat, a few rabbits and two cats. We were not allowed to pet any animals or see the rescue dogs as they keep the dog kennels closed so the dogs don't get stressed. I guess I went hoping that someone would interact with us, promote their rescue work and let our son interact with maybe a rabbit or dog. This was not so. It's quite run down and not really a public place to visit at present although some attempts have been made in this direction. It's fine for a ten minute visit or take a picnic and eat it by the goat pen.
