Homeward Bound!

Now living happily in Florida

Jonella came to HUA with 6 other dogs of the same breed from a terrible hoarding situation. Some people think that hoarded dogs are not as damaged as dogs from mills, but sometimes they can be just as bad. Many hoarding situations involve filth, neglect, and malnutrition. Luckily, Jonella and her friends were not in horrible shape when they arrived and had few medical problems. Jonella is well-socialized and extremely friendly. She is one happy girl all the time. She loves being around people, loves playing with the other dogs and can't get over the toy jackpot she hit when she arrived. She is a funny, energetic girl who would thrive in a busy family that would take her good places and include her in all the fun activities.

Hope you find playful people to share your life and show you lots of fun and love!" Jonella sends Kari many happy kisses and lots of snuggles, too!
Her Buddy, Kristin Knecht, from San Diego, CA, sent her this message: "Jonella, you're a darling girl and I'm so glad you're having so much fun playing with all your new toys at HUA! You will be a great joy to your new family, and until they find you, I'll be your buddy!" Jonella sends Kristin thousands of happy hugs and some happy kisses, too!

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.
