Homeward Bound!

Now living happily in 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.

Rollie is one of our Dakota Darling Schnauzers. He is a darling little guy, still a little shy but not scared anymore. His beautiful eyes bare his soul. He watches a lot, absorbing his new surroundings and looking amazed at all the fun that is going on. He likes his two Schnauzer roommates and the three of them snuggle up in the most adorable piles. Rollie will quickly capture the hearts of his new family members and he will blossom into a very happy little guy with lots of attention and a little understanding.

His Buddy, Karen Schultz, from San Diego, CA, sent him this message: "Hi Rollie. You are a very handsome pup! We are very happy that you are safe in the care of HUA and will be praying you find the perfect forever family soon. Until then consider us your buddies. Doggie smooches from Jujubee & Izzy and tummy rubs from their mom Karen." Rollie really enjoyed the tummy rubs and sends Karen many happy snuggles, and sends lots of puppy smooches to Jujubee and Izzy, too!
His Buddy, Jennifer Smith, from Omaha, NE, sent him this message: "You are a cutie! I can't wait to come meet you, but it would still be great if you were adopted before I make it there! Take care, little buddy! My students and I are looking out for you!" Rollie is pleased to have lots of student buddies, and sends Jennifer and her students many shy, little kisses and tender cuddles!

adoption info


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.
