On April 15th, 2013, Hearts United for Animals rescued 19 dogs from miserable conditions where they had lived for years in a Lancaster County, Nebraska puppy mill. Most of them were underweight, and all have medical issues due to severe neglect. All of the dogs were so happy to be rescued. They delighted in the comfort given to them by their rescuers. They enjoyed their clean new spaces and wonderful soft food. They lapped up their fresh, clean, abundant drinking water – something they had been lacking.
Rescuers decided that these dogs are definitely rock stars! They came through their ordeal with such happy, positive attitudes, looking forward to their much improved new lives. They survived, they endured, and they will become loved family members.
Lita Ford arrived at HUA with a serious uninary tract problem and a grossly infected mouth. After her dental and medications, she is now right as rain. The staff calls Lita "the Trooper". She is right with the program all the time with not a shy bone in her body. She adores being in the middle of things and seeks out people for fun. Her grin is constant and her tail is always in motion. She exudes peace and joy. After all this darling girl has lived through, we marvel at her absolute refusal to be anything but gloriously happy and open to love from all humans.
