Ingrid and the Sanctuary Sweethearts at HUA would like to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Hearts United for Animals is dedicated to the philosophy that all dogs deserve happy healthy lives with people who love them. Some dogs find that home with us as Sanctuary Sweethearts. They are animals who are not up for adoption for various reasons including health, age and personality issues. Ingrid is one of the senior Sanctuary Sweethearts. She has been with us for 10 years. She was rescued from a puppy mill in the year 2000 when she was only 2 years old. We do not know what happened to Ingrid to make her so fearful. She trusts no human. She is completely petrified. She is happy at the sanctuary because she knows that she can live life on her own terms. We give Ingrid the space she needs to be happy. She is free to play with her dog friends and takes much comfort in their presence. They know how fragile she is and take pride in protecting her and comforting her. Without your generous support our Sanctuary Sweethearts would not have the option of this happy place to call home, a place where they can live their lives knowing peace, joy and love. Please visit Ingrid and all of the Sanctuary Sweethearts of HUA on their own special page of our website and join us in wishing the these sweeties a very Happy Valentine’s Day, and every day.

I am so glad you and your friends have a safe loving home where you are cared for and not forced to be someone you cannot be. Thank you for the Valentine.
Love from your friend Marilyn

Dear Ingrid –
You are so beautiful and I’m so sorry that people caused you so much hurt and pain that you can’t trust any humans! I am so glad and thankful that you are at the sanctuary where you can live life on your terms and that you have many dog friends to play with and that they protect and comfort you. I have three Dachshund’s that you would love to play with and they would in turn love you – especially my long haired boy, Max, that was rescued from a shelter in Scottsbluff, Nebraska 5 years ago. He’s black and tan and is the same age you are. I’m sure you would love him because he is so sweet.
Thank you for your valentine! Love, your friend, Lynne

Dear Ingrid, thanks for the Valentine Gifts. It will remind me of you when I hug it. The candy was also appreciated. I wish I could be there to pet you and give you some Pennsylvania love. I am so happy to be among your many friends and admirers. Blessings to HUA for giving you a comfortable, safe and happy home. Love, Rosemarie and Nick. PS Teenie, your feline friend, will send you regards when she decided to wake up and get out of bed.

Jeb wanted to say he remembers Ingrid and remembers her as a really beautiful girl, second only to his Sister, Rachel.He’s really sorry that she doesn’t trust people because they have big white boxes full of great dog food.
