Nibbles came from a home where drug addicted members of a cult resided. We are not sure what happened to Nibbles in that home but it must have been horrific. We have never met a dog like Nibbles. She will only allow humans to touch her for a few brief seconds before she snarls and bites in terror. She does crazed dances that are strange and awkward. Sometimes, out of a deep sleep, she jolts awake, biting at the air as if she is being attacked. Despite how awful this sounds Nibbles is happy, in her own way. She has many lucid moments where she requests affection, although she can only tolerate accepting it for a very short time. She loves to gallop strangely around the office to view all of the happenings and she loves treat times. Her favorite treats are popcorn and little pieces of Mentos mints.

Because Nibbles cannot be touched for more than a few moments without extreme reaction she will live life at the sanctuary where she can do things on her own terms. We will continue to help her fight off the demons that torment her lovely soul.
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.
