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.
