Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska

On January 29, 2014, HUA rescued 45 dogs from a puppy mill in South Dakota. Some of the dogs went to other groups and the majority of them (about 30) came to HUA. HUA has been working with this particular mill on downsizing and we are pleased to announce that this mill is now shut down!

Because of these collaborative efforts, another 45 dogs are now free. Of the group, only 3 of them are males. All others are females. Puppies were also released. A few three-month-old Japanese Chin pups and four six-week-old pups are in the group. What does all this mean? Female dogs are not needed at the mill for breeding because puppies aren't selling. Efforts in educating the public are working and we must continue to let people know about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores, newspaper ads, internet ads, etc.

Alemna arrived with a severely infected mouth and a mammory tumor. She lost 29 teeth at her dental visit and thankfully, her tumor was benign and posed no danger to her health. She is a sweet, tiny little poodle girl who loves playing with the volunteers and her roommates. During recess, she surveys the crowd, eyeing up potential laps and carefully deciding which one she wants to curl up in first. It is usually Gale, the Poodle Lady (as pictured). Alemna is polite and non-discriminatory, however, and is careful to make sure everyone gets a turn with her. She is nice to all the other little dogs and enjoys their company very much. Alemna is so very ready for her home and will bring nothing but sunshine and happiness to her lucky new family.

Her Buddy, Karen Shultz, from San Diego, CA, sent her this message: "You are a darling little girl Alemna and sound very sweet. Glad you are safe and getting love every day from the wonderful folks at HUA but I do hope you find your furever home soon. Until you do, I will be your buddy along with my pups Jujubee and Izzy." Alemna sends Karen, Izzy and Jujubee many happy puppy kisses, plenty of grateful cuddles and lots of playful hugs!
Her Buddy, Linda Kolter, from Bellevue, NE, sent her this message: "You are such a sweet girl. You deserve a great home where you will be spoiled and loved forever." Darling Alemna agrees, and sends Linda many grateful kisses and happy hugs, and can't wait to see her again!

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
