Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Michigan.

Poor Claude arrived at HUA in very, very rough shape. But at least he arrived. He was almost hit by a truck on the highway when a nice passerby stopped to bring him to safety. Claude's entire body was raw and red from both fleas and mange. He also had an awful eye infection. Claude did not even care to be touched because he was in so much discomfort. Once the fleas were gone and the manage and his eye infection started to clear up Claude had a new lease on life. He would happily pitter patter all around, so happy to feel better. He clings to people now, just ever so grateful to be saved and feeling better. He is one happy, cuddly little man who would love to be in a good home with people who will take great care of him always. After these photos were taken Claude had his cherry eye operated on in Omaha and it was a great success. Claude is 100% healed and cleared for take off to a loving home.

His Buddy, Emily Castro, from Tuscon, Arizona, sent him this message: "I hope you find a home very soon, your face says so much of what you have already been through.

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.
