Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Kentucky

Carlissa is a dear sweet girl who suffered for nearly 5 years in a Nebraska puppy mill. She had untreated periodontal disease and lost 10 teeth on her first vet visit. She is really enjoying herself now that she is free. Touching grass for the first time in her life was such a pleasure to her. She loves running and playing in the yard with her doggie friends, and she is warming up to people and learning that life (and humans) can be good. She has learned to search for available laps and really enjoys cuddling with the staff and volunteers. Carlissa is a female longhaired Chihuahua. She was born 11/1/04 and weighs 9.6 pounds.

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.
