Homeward bound-adopted!

Bounce, Downy and Snuggle were rushed to the shelter in an emergency situation, having been discovered almost dead from hypothermia and dehydration. They arrived huddled together, shivering and whimpering, in a laundry basket piled with towels to help get them warm. Their people had taken their mama, moved out and left them behind at only 6 weeks of age, with no food or water. The utilities had been shut off and the pipes were frozen. They were perhaps only hours away from perishing. It took days of constant contact with humans and heating pads to get them to the point where we thought they'd survive. Becuase they were so young when they arrived, they remember nothing of their hellacious ordeal and are now happy, playful, loving, spoiled puppies who trip all over each other and everyone else. When they are let out to run in the long hallway, hilarious adventures ensue. They meet and greet the people, they tumble about, they run into walls, steal leashes, bounce on beds and bug the heck out of our resident greeter, Noah Boxer. They think that guy is the bees knees and Noah loves them like crazy. Bounce, Downy and Snuggles are puppies. They are just babies. They now know nothing but soft, warm hands, scrumptious food, cushy beds, hugs and kisses, toys and love and joy. They are exactly what all puppis should be.

Her Buddy, Lynette Dugan from Tremonton, UT, sent her this message: "You are such a cute girl and will find a loving heart very soon. Such a sweet face that will definitely melt your special new family." Bounce sends Lynette many little kisses and 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.
