Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Tilden, 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.

Alda is another of our Dakota Darlings. She had 4 teeth left when she arrived at HUA and they all had to be pulled due to decay. She has a hilariously gummy smile that cannot be contained. Alda is a riot. She adores people and adores attention. She is always cuddling up in human laps and does not discriminate against any of the staff or volunteers. She loves all of us equally and unconditionally. Alda gets a lot of laughs around here and she cherishes every minute of it. She would be thrilled to find a home with people who are around often so that she can make sure her humans are well taken care of and loved properly.

Her Buddy, Heather Vanderslice, from Seward, NE, sent her this message: "Sweet Alda, you are now safe from the puppy mill thanks to the angels at HUA! I pray a nice family adopts you soon, as you deserve all the love in the world. Best wishes from Heather V." Alda sends Heather MANY grateful kisses and lots of very affectionate hugs!

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.
