Who are you and what do you do in your day-to-day job?

We are Jaz, Jemma and Leigh from the Member Support Team. 

Who did you help today?

We volunteered at HUHA for the day. 

Why did you choose them?

We love what they do for all the animals they care for that are looking for forever homes. 

What did you do?

We helped wash and clean the dog runs and yards, walked and interacted with the dogs, assisted with feeding the dogs and basically all that is involved to take care of a dog and fulfil their needs on a daily basis. 

What did you enjoy most?

Interacting with all the dogs was a delight, and they also had a new litter of puppies (who are lookings for homes at the moment!)

What did you learn from the experience?

How important it is to not only look after our people but our animals too, they are so vulnerable and need a lot of love, care and attention. 

How can I help?

There are plenty of opportunities to help HUHA. You can volunteer like we did, donate either financially or your time, or even sponsor an animal! Check out all these options on the HUHA 'get involved' page.
