Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Chicago, Illinois.

Sweet, charming, quiet Ava was rescued from a disgusting puppy mill in Nebraska from which we have taken hundreds of dogs. She is a typical mill dog: a little bit shy, a little bit scared, and a lot hopeful. We think her blue eye may be sightless but this does not hinder the little darling in the least. Although healthy in most ways, the eye and the fact that she lost 16 teeth upon arrival shows just how very little vet care she has received. Ava likes to be held and snuggled; she thinks it feels pretty fabulous. She is an unassuming, patient gentle soul who just wants a chance at love. We can think of nobody more deserving.

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.
