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.

Keota is a charming little girl who thinks she belongs in Malibu. the sun is her constant companion. She loves rolling around in the grass and trotting around the yards with her little dog friends, basking in the glory of the beautiful skies and the knowledge that she will spend the rest of her life being adored and pampered. Keota had some dental issues when she arrived and lost 13 teeth, but she is an otherwise healthy gal who is loving every minute of this new life filled with fun people who tell her how cute and special she is.
Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddies, Jason and Rochelle Paine, from Lincoln, NE, sent her this message: "Keota, you are the sweetest, most silly, and lovey dachshund I have ever met. Someone will be lucky beyond measure to have you as part of their family." Keota loves seeing Jason and Rochelle every week when they volunteer and sends them extra kisses and cuddles to thank them!

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.
