Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in New Jersey.

Gemma had a rough start in life. Nobody took care of her and made sure she was safe and healthy. Whomever she belonged to did not take the time or make the effort worthy of such a dear dog. When she was rescued from a rural area after being abandoned, she was heartworm positive, practically starving, and in immediate need of medical attention and tender loving care. The heartworm disease has been irradicated, and Gemma is now a seriously cute little poot with a renewed sense of well being. She has shown herself to be quite the party girl after all those weeks of being still while she recovered. She is discovering all sorts of new things to do and new places to explore. She is thriving on all of this awesome attention and has been promised that from now on, she will get all of it that she needs. That, and a whole bunch of love.

Her Buddy, Nancey Evans, from Charleston, West Virginia, sent her this message: "Hi Gemma, I think you are so cute. Please allow me to be your buddy. My name is Jackson and I am a small Yorkie with a big buddy heart. Thanks for letting me be your friend. Enjoy" Gemma sends Jackson and Nancey 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.
