No-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Dedicated to the relief of suffering.
Hearts United for Animals takes in the lost, afraid, and abused creatures and provides everything possible to relieve their suffering, restore their health, and most of all love to restore their spirits.
Our shelter is located on over 60 acres of farmland in Southest Nebraska - only an hour away from Lincoln. The location, our dedication to ending puppy mills and our no-kill mission makes HUA the perfect place to go for dogs rescued from a Lancaster County puppy mills. After much activism on the part of HUA supporters including television, newspaper, internet attention and many protests, two puppy mill have been shut down in Lancaster County in the last two years.
HUA boasts five housing areas for our animals that are temperature controlled year round. Many large play and exercise yards are used daily for our dogs and all of the larger ones in permanent housing areas have indoor/outdoor runs. The majority of the dogs have roommates for comfort, companionship and play. The cat room is a feline delight. Our cat friends enjoy many beds, play towers and even a super highway around the ceiling with ramps and spiral stairs. Opening soon will be a state of the art emergency rescue building and indoor agility course.
Our typical animal population is over 400 dogs and 25 cats that have nowhere else to go.
Hearts United for Animals started began in 1989. HUA provides the best for our animals as they await their forever home. They are given the best food, veterinary care, beds, blankets, toys and most of all love. Those that are not adopted stay with us for the remainder of their lives as Sanctuary Sweethearts.
Yet, we are so much more than that. We are truly Hearts United. Our dedication to and efforts in Lancaster County run deep.
Each year Hearts United for Animals spends over $300,000 on Lancaster County programs and services. Programs and services include housing and medical care for animals rescued from Lancaster County, providing temporary shelter for animals whose owners have become homeless or are fleeing domestic abuse, low cost spay/neuter for pets of Lancaster County residents, Lancaster County foster dog and cat programs, public education and assistance programs, and emergency veterinary medical funding for indigent residents of Lancaster County.
Your support is greatly appreciated and used to restore happiness and health to the neediest creatures.
