911 Emergency Assistance & Rescue911-Landing-Page

Hearts United for Animals assists with emergency medical cases as funding allows. Sometimes an owner needs a little help in being able to keep their pet, sometimes a dog or cat in dire straits needs a place to go immediately where they can receive the medical attention and rehabilitation they need to find a happy new life. Without assistance these animals would not survive. We receive calls and emails daily from emergency animal clinics, distressed owners who are afraid they will lose their pets because they can’t afford care, city pounds that have taken in animals that are beyond their capacity to help, and concerned citizens or police officers who have found animals in desperate need. 

Without your donations these stories of hope, recovery and happy endings for the most needy of our animal friends would not be possible. Please consider a donation to assist with our emergency medical funding program so that we can help save more lives.

While we cannot help in every case, we make an effort when funding is available. Because inquiries are numerous and funding is limited we require that you have asked friends and family for assistance first and that you have been turned down by Care Credit. If we cannot help we can refer you to other sources that may be able to assist once we learn more about the specific needs of your pet.

Homeless Man and His Dog Need Help to Stay Together
Tracy rescued Buck when he was just a baby.  Buck was tied outside where neighbors would watch him fall off the porch, suspended by his leash, just short of being able to put his little paws on the ground and strangling himself.  They would help him out only to have it happen again.  Finally Tracy came along and gave him a home where he would be safe.  Returning the favor for being rescued, Buck rescued Tracy.  Tracy had Buck certified as a therapy dog to help him with his PTSD.  Buck became his best friend and helps him tremendously with his mental illness.  Several months later Tracy received a call saying that his mother in Nebraska was in ill health, that he needed to come be with her and get her set up in a permanent care facility.  Tracy was able to

18 Puppy Mill Dogs Were Scheduled to Die
Just seven days ago, late in the afternoon, we received an urgent message.  Eighteen puppy mill dogs were going to be killed by the breeder first thing the next morning if they weren't rescued.  Another rescue had found out about it but did not have the resources to drop everything to go save them.  Within 20 minutes of receiving the details, Julie and Lori threw crates and blankets in the HUA van and took off for central Missouri.  Six hours later, after a harrowing trip through the steep hills of Amish mill country, complete with horse and buggy crossing signs, the dogs were safely resting and gobbling down soft nutritious food at HUA.  We were told they were all old, but some turned out to be quite young.

41 Dachshunds Saved from Arkansas Puppy Mill
Forty-one Dachshunds arrived at Hearts United for Animals on Monday evening, January 25th.  Julie and Linda from HUA rescued them from an Arkansas breeding facility that was going out of business.  We were told that they were rare colors, gorgeous dogs with many championship winners among them.  The breeder said they were well cared for and were her babies.  She knew each one and would tell us all about them.  That sounded different from the typical puppy mill rescue, a breath of fresh air to find a breeder who treated the dogs so well.  Unfortunately, when we arrived the story didn’t resemble reality at all.     Julie and Linda were taken into a
