Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in Plattsmouth, Nebraska
On January 29, 2014, HUA rescued 45 dogs from a puppy mill in South Dakota. Some of the dogs went to other groups and the majority of them (about 30) came to HUA. HUA has been working with this particular mill on downsizing and we are pleased to announce that this mill is now shut down!
Because of these collaborative efforts, another 45 dogs are now free. Of the group, only 3 of them are males. All others are females. Puppies were also released. A few three-month-old Japanese Chin pups and four six-week-old pups are in the group. What does all this mean? Female dogs are not needed at the mill for breeding because puppies aren't selling. Efforts in educating the public are working and we must continue to let people know about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores, newspaper ads, internet ads, etc.
When Lavani arrived at the shelter she took off running and zoomed and hopped all over the yard. Our sides ached from laughter. She had a gigantic smile on her face and bounced up and down like a jack rabbit. When she was done with the celebration, she ran to each of us, front paws in the air, asking sweetly to be picked up and cuddled. And boy, does Lavani cuddle. She insists upon it. She is known for stalking unsuspecting victims while out for recess. Anyone sitting must beware, because in a flash she is in your face and covering it with kisses. She is a riot and everyone is completely in love with this darling, silly girl.
