Happily living in Evanstown, IN

You can see the worry in her beautiful eyes. You can see the nervousness in her gait. It is heartbreaking, and we aim to fix it. Katerina was raised on a farm. She lives outside in kennel with very little human interaction for her entire life. She was so confused when she arrived at the shelter, not certain if she had done something wrong or something right. She had no self-confidence or self-worth. Our hearts broke for her. Sweet Katerina is coming around. She gets excited to see her leash and behaves like a perfect lady during her walks. Although still a bit timid, she will offer a shy little smile to people she recognizes. She is starting to figure it out. Sweet Kat just needs a little time and a little understanding. We have faith in her and we predict a wonderful future filled with happiness and love all around.

Our mom and Dad had a sheltie that lived to be 17 and his name was Barkley. He came from HUA too. Gain your confidence because people like ours are wonderful and live us! Hope you get a forever home like ours. We love you, Petey,Patches,Baron and Fergie Meadows" Katerina sends Petey, Patches, Baron, Fergie and Jan 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.
