Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in New York.

Garnet was abandoned at an Oklahoma puppy mill. The millers were not making any money as their pups weren't selling. They packed up and moved and left all of the dogs behind to starve to death. Fortunately a neighbor realized what happened. Many of the kind townspeople came together to rescue all of the dogs from the horrible conditions and get them to safety at various no-kill shelters throughout the mid-west. We are so happy Garnet had such wonderful rescuers who were willing to drive him all the way to Nebraska. They took excellent care of him and we can tell how much he appreciates being rescued. He is still a bit shaken from his ordeal, but he has a look of hope in his eyes and a sense of relief. He is a very kind, sweet boy who is so grateful for things other dogs take for granted, like a warm bed, good food, and love. Garnet is a male Dachshund. He was born 06/11/03 and weighs 9.2 pounds.
Buddy Messages (1)
His Buddy, Bonnie Faimon, from Lincoln, Nebraska, sent him this message: "Hello to Garnet from Lincoln, Nebraska.  I am a Dachshund myself, and my mom just couldn't stand seeing your picture on the computer without any Buddies. So now you have a new Buddy, me, a Dachshund just about your color.  I was lucky; when I was a puppy 9 years ago I came to live with my mom and dad.  Then they adopted my sister, Daisy Blue, who is a very tall black and white Chihuahua, from a less-than-scrupulous "backyard breeder" 7 years ago.  Then 7 months ago our BIG little brother, 3-year-old Black Lab Trooper--my dad's guide dog--came to live with us.  I'm telling you all this so you will see that somehow or other things work out so that every good dog, like you, ends up with a good home.  I'm glad to be your Buddy, and hope your forever home will come true very soon.  Love, Toby (officially Tobias Truffle because I am so sweet!) " Garnet sends much love and grateful hugs and kisses to Bonnie and Toby.

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.
