Minette was rescued from a horrible puppy mill in Missouri where she spent the first 7 years of her life. She was so frightened that she would go stiff when touched by the humans. She was terrified to be picked up or held. Her past life of abuse at the mill was horrific. Slowly she began to trust those with whom she had contact on a daily basis. She would sit in the corner and observe her surroundings while laying on soft blankets and snuggling with her best friends. Eventually she would allow herself to be picked up and held by those she trusted most without being panic stricken.

Minette loves her freedom to be herself and bask in the companionship of the other dogs while interacting with the humans on her terms, at her own gradual comfort level. She is happy to be where the people allow her room to grow and thrive at her own pace. HUA is happy to provide care and love for this dear Sweetheart.
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.
