Hearts United for Animals

Hearts United for Animals is a Smithsonian Award winning, state-of-the-art no-kill shelter and sanctuary dedicated to relieving the suffering of domestic animals. HUA has rescued over 12,000 dogs from puppy mills, provided low cost spay/neuter services for over 14,000 patients, and offers temporary housing for animals of families fleeing domestic violence. We have placed thousands of cats and dogs in wonderful new homes across the country through our JetSet Dogs program. The Proud Pets Program provides free veterinary care for the beloved pets of previously homeless veterans. With your support, we continue with these very important missions of mercy that save precious lives and heal broken hearts.

Meet Heron

Sweetie Pie Heron is a lover and a fighter. Although he was rescued from a puppy mill known for severely abusive conditions, he has emerged a tiny hero. Even though he is still somewhat shy and wary of new situations, he has forced himself to branch out into the world full of fun and is allowing himself to be happy. His best friend and room-mate, Phoebe, feels very safe with Heron and he keeps a watchful eye on her if he thinks she is feeling uncomfortable. He is so very caring and concerned if anything is troubling her. We think Heron is the best of all dogs and applaud him constantly for his bravery. A home is what he needs, what he so very much deserves, and we will work very hard to make sure that he gets the very best. Visit Heron at http://www.hua.org/component/animals/?id=923
