Happy Valentine’s Day from the Sanctuary Sweethearts at HUA

Uncategorized 6 Comments

Dulcea and her pals at Hearts United for Animals would like to wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you so much for your generous support that saved their lives and allows them to be happy as Sanctuary Sweethearts.  The Sanctuary Sweetheart program is for dogs who are not adoptable due to age, medical or behavioral condition.  Dulcea came from a horrible puppy mill in Nebraska.  Her eyes were so severely damaged that they both had to be removed to spare her further suffering.  When she came to HUA several years ago she was on death’s door, but today she is the happiest, spunkiest little ray of sunshine you could ever imagine.  She has a permanent foster home with Aunt Jean, who is Florence Nightingale and Mother Theresa wrapped into one for so many downtrodden, sick and forlorn animals who have come through our doors.  Jean talks to Dulcea all day so that she knows where to find her and feels comfort at all times.  Dulcea has surprised everyone by learning to hop into bed by herself and even do stairs.  She has been known to make special guest appearances at local events urging the public to adopt rather than buy animals from pet stores.  People say, “oh she must be tired, she is sleeping”.  When she is in her snuggle sac with Jean it looks as if her eyes are closed and she is napping.  Jean then explains that she isn’t sleeping, she just does not have eyes due to the abuse at the puppy mill.  We are sure that many people are now spreading the word to their friends about how the parents of pet store puppies are treated due to the special public appearances by our dear little Dulcea.

Dulcea has also been an activist in pet store protests.  Twice she came out to help HUA protest the Petland at the corner of 120th and West Center Road in Omaha.  This Valentine’s Day she is proud to announce success!  The Petland store closed for good this month…an amazing gift to the puppy mill dogs.  No longer will sick puppies whose parents suffer in large commercial breeding establishments be sold here.  We thank Dulcea for her efforts to help fight for those still suffering in the puppy mills.

From our Sweethearts to yours, we wish you a wonderful Valentine’s Day.  To learn more about Dulcea and her other Sanctuary Sweetheart friends please visit their special webpage.  For just $25/mo you can sponsor a HUA Sanctuary Sweetheart.

    Dulcea thanks everyone for saving her and wishes other puppies can know the joy of walking on grass, having good food and snuggly beds, and, best of all, hearing lots of sweet talk.
    Happy Valentine from Dulcea.

    Her secretary, Aunt Jean

    Belated Valentines Greetings to all of you, four and two-footed, and especially to my very own Sanctuary Sweetheart, dear Ingrid!

    P.S. Any recent pictures of her are always more than welcome. Hint, hint. (Perhaps wallet/purse size so I could show her off, which I would gladly do…)

    I just heard about you on kalx in berkeley. My heart goes out to animals, and after reading about the little one that you saved, I started crying, as I cannot believe people can be that cruel to someone who cannot fight back. thank you for caring, and doing what you can for these creatures, I salute, you, and bow quite low. namaste.
    and blessings,

    It was great to hear from Dulcea on Valentines Day and to know that she is so active and happy. Thank you, Aunt Jean, for being such a wonderful caregiver. We are Dulcea’s “buddy”, and we think about her often. She is in our prayers. We always appreciate hearing about how our little Dulcea is doing.

    Vic and Candy Pajak
