Long-Distance Adoptions

Carrie Ann is a Shih Tzu cross available for adoption

Looking to adopt a new friend?

Hearts United For Animals is a Midwest-based rescue group that does long-distance adoptions. You don’t need to live in the Midwest to adopt one of their dogs, but you do need to meet other requirements and pass a “home visit”.

There is an element of trust here, where you either need to accept what HUA tells you about your new prospective pet, or you need to fly or drive there to look at the dogs yourself.

But if you’ve been looking in your own area for some time and haven’t found the right dog for you, you should visit HUA’s website — you might just find your next best friend waiting there. They do have many small dogs, which can be hard to find.

  1. I have been searching for an addition to my family and am coming up empty. And my friend told me about your website and I see carrie Ann and think she is very cute. Could you tell me more about her? I am looking for a small dog. I have a 16 month old Toy Aussie now and we just lost our best friend.

      Hi, Lauri, thank you for your interest in Carrie Ann. She has been adopted, but you can visit the Midwest Animal Shelter site and see if they have any other dogs that interest you. Also visit petfinder.com and you’ll find hundreds of small dogs who need homes in your area.

      All best,
