Kayson was rescued from a Nebraska puppy mill where he suffered for 8 years, caged, lonely and ill. By the time Hearts United for Animals rescued him he was very sick. He has a bad heart condition, a collapsing trachea and had a cancerous lump removed from his side that did not have clean margins. Because of Kayson's collapsing trachea he cannot have a second surgery for the cancer at this time. He goes through bouts of struggling to breath but with several medications and rest he manages well most of the time. At one point Kayson lost use of all four limbs but did recover after a week in the animal hospital. He has also lost most of his teeth. Despite all of Kayson's problems he is a happy, bright little ray of sunshine who delights in everyone he meets. From the moment he was rescued he has danced and smiled constantly. He enjoys being rescued, loved and adored. He lives on the property at Hearts United for Animals with one of the caregivers. Although his days may be limited he is making the most of each one and his caregiver gives him all the love and attention his heart desires to help make up for all of his years of misery and neglect.
Sanctuary Sweethearts

Hearts United for Animals is dedicated to the philosophy that all dogs deserve happy healthy lives with people who love them. Some dogs find that home with us as Sanctuary Sweethearts. They are animals who are not up for adoption for various reasons including health, age and personality issues.

The Sanctuary Sweethearts live full, comfortable, happy lives at Hearts United. It costs about 25 dollars a month to care for these special needs dogs (and to keep them in frisbees and balls!) The Sweetheart Program allows people to sponsor one of the animals living at the Shelter. We will send you a photo and information about the dog you are sponsoring and will update you on their lives during the year. You can stop your donation at any time.

These are some of the dogs who live at the Shelter as Sanctuary Sweethearts. You can sponsor a Sanctuary Sweetheart by clicking here. The cost is twenty-five dollars a month.

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.
