Helping you help animals (HUHA) is dedicated to teaching empathy to the community and providing shelter for those less fortunate animals that struggle to survive in today's disposable culture. The sanctuary is fun and interactive in many ways, designed to encourage our community to be proactive and take responsibility for the welfare of animals and the protection of our unique environment. HUHA actively works everyday to find homes and foster care for a multitude of homeless, abandoned, seized and abused animals. We're here to help you help animals.

HUHAs 3 missions to CHCH to relocate animals was a great success, 120 dogs, cats, turtles and roosters are safely snuggled up with either permanent or foster families. We would like to send our thoughts to the CHCH families that have had to let their friends go...it is heartbreaking that they are going through this.
