Happily living in Stilwell, KS.

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.

Topeka is another of our Dakota Darlings. She is categorized as AWESOME. We are so charmed by her incredible cuteness and zest for life. Topeka is an attention seeker and insists that we pet her, talk to her, pick her up, cuddle her, love her and admire her. We are very happy to oblige. She has actually learned the clever trick of gently crawling up our legs to sneak into our laps which yields some enthusiastic applause. Topeka is a smart, happy, silly little girl who is so excited about this new life full of freedom and adventure.
Buddy Messages (1)
Her Buddy, Jennifer Petersen, from Springfield, NE, sent her this message: "Topeka, your smile will melt many hearts, and it sounds like you have a personality to match that sweet face! You deserve a future full of love from a forever family who will cherish every minute with you, and I hope they find you soon!" Topeka sends Jennifer more sweet kisses than she can even imagine, and many grateful hugs, too!

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.
