> HUA has operated a very low-cost spay/neuter clinic since October of 2003.
> The Spay/Neuter Program serves a 4-state area and is so extremely popular
> that a waiting list exists at all times. Over 5,000 cats and dogs have been

> HUA assists families of the Midwest region with vet care for their animals
> when the families are unable to pay.
> HUA emphasizes animal welfare education for young people, including free
> education curriculum for schools and other organizations.
> HUA operates an extensive anti-puppy mill effort nationally. They supply

> To sum things up, HUA states:

> Our gratitude to the thousands and thousands of people across the world who

> HUA happens to have an incredible weakness for the wieners....right now

>  Billow
> (Note..Billow has stolen my heart...she is so proudly postured, and even

> Born: 10/02/2004, 11 lbs
> Billow is the perfect example of why her breed is so popular. She is willing

> decided that she is going to live a nice, peaceful life.
>  Oscar--He looks ready to play!!!
> Born: 02/01/2010, 9 lbs
> Mr. Happy here was transported to the shelter from another rescue group in
> Wyoming, where there are too many dogs and not enough adopters. He is such a
> special little guy with a love for toys that comes close to that of the
> famous Darik Dachshund. Oscar is all about good times. He is a high roller
> when it comes to play time, but also cherishes the time he spends in the
> many warm laps he encounters belonging to staff and volunteers. Although he
> is loving and generally an all-around great fella, we think someone may have
> been mean to Oscar at one time in his life. He loves to be held, but we must
> be careful not to startle him when we pick him up. It scares him, as if it's
> been done roughly to him before and he remembers. This deeply saddens us as
> we cannot imagine anyone ever intentionally hurting Oscar or being too rough
> with him. Nonetheless, Oscar adores people and is incredibly thrilled at the
> prospect of a fabulous home where he can play the day away,
>  every day.
>  Ava--look at that sweet face!
> Born: 12/07/2004, 10 lbs
> Sweet, charming, quiet Ava was rescued from a disgusting puppy mill in
> Nebraska from which we have taken hundreds of dogs. She is a typical mill
> dog: a little bit shy, a little bit scared, and a lot hopeful. We think her
> blue eye may be sightless but this does not hinder the little darling in the
> least. Although healthy in most ways, the eye and the fact that she lost 16
> teeth upon arrival shows just how very little vet care she has received. Ava
> likes to be held and snuggled; she thinks it feels pretty fabulous. She is
> an unassuming, patient gentle soul who just wants a chance at love. We can
> think of nobody more deserving.
>  Meara--this one is Tascha's favorite. :)
> Born: 03/26/2005, 10 lbs
> Meara was turned over to a vet friend of the shelter due to a severe case of
> mammary tumors. Our friend wanted Meara to have a shot at life and the best
> of care, and asked if we'd do that for her. Meara had multiple tumors, and
> although there were many, they were well excised and fairly easy to remove.
> Happily, this means that her prognosis is good and Meara is considered
> healthy. She has a calm, sweet temperament. She is loving and kind. She is
> grateful that we saved her and shows us nothing but goodness. It warms the
> heart to watch this girl roll in the freshly cut grass, soaking up the
> sunshine and enjoying the day. We hope that very soon, she'll be doing the
> same thing in her own yard with her new family.
>  Flame--How gorgeous is he?
> Born: 10/18/2005, 12 lbs
> Flame is a happy, outgoing boy who adores people. He appreciates and
> remembers all good things that come his way. Everyone who meets him can't
> help but smile and give him a moment of their time. Every day is a new and
> exciting opportunity to meet new people for Flame. We hope that one of these
> days those new people will be a family he can call his own and entertain
> with his silly Dachshund antics. Flame has a slightly enlarged heart that
> should continue to be monitored by a veterinarian, but is currently causing
> him no problems.
>  Posey--So sweet....
> Born: 07/11/2003, 15 lbs
> Posey came to us from a horrible hoarding situation that produced many
> unhappy and very unhealthy dogs. This little darling was suffering from
> extensive and enormous hernias and mastitis from being bred over and over
> again. She was a hot mess. She was in pain. She was scared. However, we got
> Posey allllllll fixed up and she is thrilled about that! She is the sweetest
> little doll, with a friendly disposition and a charming personality. She
> waddles about the place looking for friends and making up to everyone she
> sees. She scurries about with a wide grin and a super waggy tail. Posey is
> so happy to be feeling great and just delighted that she is to be featured
> on her very own web page, where all the world can see what a stunner she
> is.
> I would have copied all the wieners, but I thought I'd leave a reason for
> you all to go to the HUA website and check out the rest.  (  Let
> yourself fall in is Valentine's month you know....
> Hope to see you tomorrow (Sat 2/9) at our Wienter Formal!!! 12-2 pm at Good
> Karma Dog Center.
