History - Buka arrived into rescue as a puppy and was adopted but he came back after his adopters abandoned him! Buka belongs to SHARE rescue and is currently staying at Oakwood while he finds his new home.

Personality - Buka is affectionate and full of beans. He loves playing with people but he isn't keen on other dogs. He has been learning to walk nicely on a lead and he really, really, loves food and so is easy to train!

A little message from Buka -

“What have you got there? Can I eat it?"

 

How Can You Help?

How Can You Help?

There are several way in which you can help our dogs have a happy and fulfilling life while they are in our care. Whether you can give us an hour or two to walk some dogs or help us with our fundraising efforts, or even buy us an item or two from our shopping list, every little bit is a huge help to us.

Volunteering

We always need people to help us in the following ways -

Dog Walking/Play Sessions - If you can spare just half an hour to walk one of our dogs, or even have a play session with one in our hall or on our field it can really make a difference to that dogs life.

To dog walk you need to be over 16 years of age and bring Photo and Address ID for all people who are walking, visit between the hours of 8-12midday or 5-9pm, 7 days a week. (no appointments required)

Collections/Events - We always need people to help on our Street Collections and at any events that we collect or have stalls. This is one of the main ways in which we raise funds and is very important to the rescue.

Car Boot Sales - We are hoping to recruit a team of volunteers to run regular car boots sales for us, selling items we are donated to raise funds. We are looking at getting a regular indoor pitch for winter and an outdoor one for summer.

Shopping List

We have a shopping list of items that we use daily to ensure that the dogs have clean kennels, full tummies, and lots to keep them occupied whilst they are with us. You could pop an item or two into your shopping basket or even do some online shopping and get it sent directly to the centre.

Fostering

Some of our rescue dogs are much happier being in a home environment then in the rescue centre ,and this is why we have fosterers. A foster home can offer a dog a stable environment whilst they are waiting for their forever home. We can only accept foster applications from people who live in Hull or the surrounding area as we will need the dogs to be brought into the centre for viewings on a regular basis.

At the moment we are only taking applications from people who are willing to have the dog on a full-time, long-term basis. We need people who are at home the majority of the time, have no children, and no other pets except possibly quiet, calm dogs.
