Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in Louisville, KY
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.
Kitts is one of a kind. She plays some big games with people, and we find her absolutely hilarious. Sometimes, she acts like she is shy and fragile. Take her to the sunporch for lunch, however, and she is the life of the party. Request her presence at a photo shoot and she honestly cannot be bothered. We laughed so hard taking her pictures that we about fell out of our seats. Kitts turned her face this way and that, refusing to pose, closing her eyes so she could not see our ridiculous behavior. This little girl is a real pill. We expect big stories to come from her home, and know that she will keep us giggling long after she has left the shelter.
