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.
Neema is one of our Dakota Darlings. She is an easy liver. She loves meeting new people, has a blast goofing around with her room-mates, adores recess time and special trips to the sunporch. Nothing gets her down and everything gives her joy. She has the cutest little button nose and likes it when we tell her how pretty she is. Neema will do well in just about any home. She is sweet, easy-going and appreciative of all good things that come her way.
