Hanlon came to HUA with two other lovely dogs, surrendered by their owner who advised one of our directors that if we did not take them in, he would either shoot them or dump them. It was 100 degrees that day. Obviously we were horrified. We ushered Hanlon and his pals right on in the door and ushered that awful man right out the door. Hanlon is a wonder to us. He adores every single creature, large or small, on the planet. When volunteers get out the tiny, puppy mill dogs for socialization, Hanlon insists on being in the mix. Never before have we allowed a big dog to have recess with 20 or 30 scared little ones running around, but for Hanlon we have made an exception. He LOVES those little guys! He steps very carefully around them, ever so gentle, with a patient smile on his face and gold in his heart. He is an amazing creature and we are in deep admiration of him.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Teresa Smith, from Ericson, NE, sent him this message: "My dear Hanlon, you are such a wonderful, caring boy. I am amazed by your gentle spirit and impressed with your concern for the shy, scared dogs at HUA. You are sure to find a family soon and they will be so lucky to have you! I will pray for that day to come soon. Until then, please keep taking care of the other dogs who need your love. Love and prayers, Teresa" Hanlon sends Teresa many, many happy kisses, joyful hugs, and playful tail wags!

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.
