Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in Smithville, Missouri
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.
Veletta is a Dakota Darling to the fullest extent. She is silly and bouncy and curious about everything. She loves all people and when she is not busy checking out the yard or the recess room or the toy bin, she is all snuggles. She gets along well with the other dogs and is just a very happy, precious little girl.
