Now living happily in Edgewood, MD
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.
Sarette is another one of our Dakota Darlings. Since being rescued, she has lived each and every day as if it is her last. She is overjoyed at every new thing. She wants to cuddle AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE and never lets a person slip through without excited greetings and crazy tail wagging. Being outside is a glorious event for Sarette. She just cannot get over her good fortune. She adores playing with the other small dogs and is nice enough to show the shy ones how to live. She is the sweetest thing and will be over the moon once she is finally in her very own home.
