Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Sweet, darling Caritas has had some double trouble. She was rescued from a puppy mill and finally had found herself a home. Just as she was settling in and starting to understand that the horrors of her life in a mill were behind her, she was given up to rescue. Caritas was so confused and so sad and disappointed. The poor thing had no idea what she did wrong and now she thinks that maybe nobody likes her. She has decided not to totally give up on humans, but she is careful about taking her time to get to know us. She will not allow herself to trust again until she is absolutely, positively certain that she will not be abandoned. Her sorrow is visible. She loves being held and falls asleep in our arms, only to jolt awake to make sure we are still there. We are making it our mission to convince Caritas that she is good and that we love her. She wants so badly to believe it. The precious angel deserves all the love and comfort in the world and we are going to make sure she gets it. Forever.

Her Buddy, Lou Taggart, from Moab, Utah, sent her this message: "Dear Caritas, You are so precious. I love you and so do the kind folks at HUA. You will find a home soon where you are completely adored forever. I just know it. Love, Lou" Caritas sends Lou many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.
Her Buddy, Pam Marshall, from Port Edwards, Wisconsin, sent her this message: "Dear Caritas, I wish I could adopt you and love you, but I already have as many dogs as I am allowed to have. Still, I love you very much and want you so very much to learn how to trust humans and live a happy life. I am sorry you had so much pain in your life, but so happy that everything is going to be all right now that you're with HUA! Pam Marshall and family" Caritas sends Pam many happy, grateful hugs and 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.
