Sammy came to HUA when he was young. He was was a feral cat who rather liked things his way. No placements were available for Sammy so he continued to live at the shelter in the dog rooms. Sammy came to enjoy his environment. He lives in a multi-level cat condo and has servants who feed him, rearrange his cat toys to his liking and change his litter several times a day. During these recess times he proudly struts around the dog rooms reminding all of the canine residents that he is in charge. We are a bit unclear if Sammy knows he is a cat, or if he thinks he is a dog after all the years of canine only companionship. Regardless, he takes his duties of keeping the canines and humans in line quite seriously. Although living at a dog sanctuary is certainly no traditional life for a cat, Sammy does truly love and enjoy his life at HUA.
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.
