LKBlogHUA managers John and Julie arrived at Hearts United for Animals late yesterday afternoon with The Lion King. He has been homeless in a disadvantaged part of north Omaha (just north of 20th and Lake) for an estimate of three years. An HUA Director was alerted to the situation on December 10th. Local animal control had reportedly been trying to capture him for three years.  The dog, sweet but very afraid, only had the courage to approach children. Unfortunately, this summer those children thought it would be funny to dump green paint on him. He forgave them. He often walked with them to school, keeping them company at the bus stop, but no adult could get close enough to touch him.

Kind neighbors, who nicknamed him The Lion King, reported

BuddyCockerBlogBuddy, an exceptionally sweet elderly Cocker Spaniel mix, is having a very Merry Christmas Eve.  He just heard the news that he and his two kitty pals, Ying and Kammer, who have all been together for 10 years, will get to go home to their mom on Tuesday.  They have been separated since November when their mom had to flee a domestic abuse situation that was putting her and her pets in grave danger.  She was facing eviction as well.  The domestic abuse shelter would not accept pets, so Buddy and his cat pals went to a city animal shelter where their mom thought they would be safe.  Unfortunately, she soon received a call saying they were no longer welcome.  They would either be adopted to other families or euthanized.

CubbyGumbyCubby was found motherless at only five weeks old.  He is one of many puppies who have been

recently dumped in the frigid cold Bottineau region of North Dakota along the Canadian border.  They all have had mange and are very malnourished.  Cubby was taken in by a family who realized when he was unable to walk that they could not care for his extensive needs, so they took him to animal control where he would have been euthanized if it weren't for a kind rescuer, Jackie.  Jackie took Cubby into her home and posted pleas for help.  Sadly, mange is the least of Cubby's problems.  All four of his legs are misshapen.  His bones are very soft and not forming correctly.  Cubby suffered malnutrition to such an extent that it effected his growth.

HarveyBlogStories conflict on what exactly happened to Harvey, but we know that on a car ride with his family he ended up outside of the car, with the car still moving but still attached to the leash which was inside the car. Witnesses said he tried and tried to keep up, but the car just kept going and eventually Harvey's legs gave out and he couldn't keep up. He was dragged for what witnesses report was approximately half of a mile, screaming for his life. His family didn't stop. They said they didn't notice. Animal control in the town finally got custody of Harvey.
