Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Lincoln, 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.

India is a sweet, quiet, gentle little girl. Thanks to the complete lack of vet care at the mill, she lost 30 teeth due to decay and infection. Thankfully, she is very healthy otherwise and happy to be pain free. India has a nice, calm nature and approaches people in the sweetest of ways, asking for attention by wagging her cute stubby tail in crazy circles. She likes the company of other dogs and never seems to be overwhelmed by the wild parties at recess time. Her caregivers have deemed her "the perfect little Schnauzer".

Her Buddy, Nancey Evans, from Charleston, West Virginia sent her this message: "What a sweet and gentle creation you are and how patiently you are waiting for someone to love you and support you. Well here I am! Please say you will accept me and may HUA pass on to you the many, many hugs and kisses I am sending you. . .until you find your forever home." India sends Nancey many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.

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.
