Homeward bound-adopted!

Now living happily in Palm Harbor, FL.

In July 2012, a sheriff of a small town in South Dakota called one of our directors, Julie, about 30 Pomeranians who were starving with no water. They were living in a patch of noxious weeds taller than most people. The owner/breeder had planned on shooting them, but she was allowed to willfully surrender them. The situation was one of the worst Julie had ever seen, and the rescue itself seemed impossible to carry out at times. Many of the tiny dogs were so feral and afraid that they bit and thrashed and screamed at the end of the catchpoles. Working in the heat and filth caused many rescuers to become ill. Newborn pups were found under boards near their mother, who was eating a dead bird. One fragile, terrified little Pom's fur was matted so badly that a frog was living in it. Julie and the sheriff were absolutely horrified by the sights and smells of that day.

Sybil Ludington is a wonder to behold. She is so petite with a coat that is almost as white as snow. Her dark eyes tell tales of the horror she lived through, but her tiny smile also speaks volumes about the relief she now feels. She is still a tad bit shy, but we know she wants some excitement in her life. She does the most precious litte dance on her back feet, waving her front paws, begging for attention. But then, she is sometimes afraid to be picked up. We are positive that Sybil will come around beautifully. We are confident in her ability to trust and love. She will be a success story.

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.
