Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Beatrice, Nebraska

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.

Hula is another of our Dakota Darlings, and is she ever. She is the most adorable little thing and people comment on her astounding beauty all the time. She has been a bit shy but warms up quickly. When she is comfortable, she is a curious, funny girl who wants to see the world. We are seeing more of that silly side every day. Hula loves playing with the other dogs and has decided to join in all the fun during recess time. She will need just a very short amount of time in her new home before her family meets the spicy little girl we know is in there.

Her Buddy, Darci McAbee, from Bellevue, NE, sent her this message: "You are a darling little girl!! You will make someone a great furbaby ~ as Schnauzers are the best!! =) (I'm only a little biased!) My babies Moment and Callie send love and snuggles until you find your furever home!" Hula loved the snuggles and sends Darci, Callie and Moment many happy smiles and joyful kisses!

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.
