Homeward Bound - Adopted!

Now living happily in Aurora, Colorado!

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.

This very special Dakota Darling came to the shelter with five precious puppies. She was the best little mama and took wonderful care of her babies, all of whom have been adopted. Susan is a quiet, gentle, tiny sweetheart. She loves to cuddle up on laps, loves to be pampered and swooned over. She gets along with the other little dogs, but is not a big player. She prefer to perch upon the humans, being told how darling she is, and watching the crazy play from above.

Molly and I would love to be your buddies until you find your forever home. Enjoy your time at HUA as they will take extra special care of you! Love, Stacy and Molly" Susan hopes Stacy visits again soon, and sends her lots of sweet cuddles, along with little puppy kisses for HUA alum Molly!

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.
