Homeward bound-adopted!

Mitch is from a puppy mill in a small town in Nebraska. True to his breed, he is a sensitive soul and we could see in his eyes the depth of his pain from living a life of horror. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was afraid of everything - the sights, the sounds, the smells. Everything was new and scary and he did not know what to make of all of it. He has discovered, though, that the human touch is comforting, that toys are interesting, and that having a safe, warm place to lay his precious head is quite spectacular. Mitch has taken his own time to come around, but each day we see a little more happiness and spark. He is a beautiful little boy who deserves a future filled with the wonderful things only a family of his own can give him.

His Buddy, Donna Warnat, from New York, sent him this message: "Sweet Mitch, I’m so glad you are safe with HUA. I know you will be happy and well cared for there while they look for a great “forever” home for you. - Donna W." Mitch sends Donna many happy kisses and grateful little hugs!
His Buddy, Karen Palmerino, from Southbridge, MA, sent him this message: "Mitch, you have such beautiful, soulful eyes and I feel that someone gentle will see your big heart and help you to heal from the horrors you suffered in that awful mill. I hope you find your furever home quickly! I wish I could hold you close and make you feel safe. Love from Karen" Mitch sends Karen little but very happy kisses and many happy smiles and tail wags!

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.
