8 Great Places to Adopt a Pet
What it is: Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill animal shelter, sanctuary, and animal welfare organization situated on a 65-acre farm in Auburn, Nebraska. It seeks to comfort homeless animals by providing warm beds, good food, medical care, and love.
How it works: Go to hua.org and browse through available cats and dogs. If you don’t live near the shelter, the organization will handle transportation for your new best friend if appropriate. “We will fly the dog out in cargo if the flight is safe, the weather conditions are right, and the dog has the right health status to fly,” says adoption coordinator Tera Bruegger.
Why it’s unique: Hearts United for Animals focuses primarily on dogs, especially those rescued from puppy mills and natural disasters, as well as long-distance adoptions.
