Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Omaha, 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.

Sandrina is one of our Dakota Darlings. She is absolutely adorable. She loves people and has so much fun playing with her roommate and the other little dogs during recess. Sammie the Cat even thinks she's cute and that guy is very particular. Sandrina lost 11 teeth during her dental visit but other than that was found to be in excellent health. She is a happy, fun, precious little girl.
