Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska

For close to five years, Hansel and Gretel lived in puppy mills. They were bounced around and sold between millers because of their stellar production. What they went through before they finally made it to HUA is something we cannot even fathom. Somehow, Hansel has found the strength and courage to leave his past in the past, and he means to live the rest of his life as a happy, trusting and friendly fellow. He likes hanging out with us here at the shelter, and he has made many terrific friends. Hansel is taking advantage of every second of his freedom. We are thrilled with his progress and couldn't be more proud of this adorable little guy. Due to chronic dry eye, Hansel will have to use eye drops for the rest of his life. He is a good boy when we give him his medicine as he knows it makes him feel all better. Other than that, he was given a completely clean bill of health and is ready to bounce into his very own home and begin the celebration that will last forever.

His Buddy, Margaret Majors, from Ft. Atkinson, WI, sent him this message: "Dear, sweet Hansel, I am so happy to be your Buddy during your stay with our friends at HUA! You've already escaped the witch (the puppy mills), and I'm sure you will be finding your way to your forever home soon! Hugs from your Buddy, Margaret (Josie & Gabby, too)" Hansel sends Margaret, Josie and Gabby many grateful hugs and tender little kisses!
His Buddy, Lou Taggart from Moab, UT, sent him this message: "Dear Little Guy, if I could, I would give you a great forever home with me, but until you DO find your forever home, I know your friends at HUA are giving you the next best thing! Big hugs from your Buddy, Lou!" Hansel sends Lou many grateful hugs and little 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.
