This animal welfare organization was founded in 1966 by a small group of dedicated citizens and the shelter has since grown to care for more than 2,000 homeless animals every year. Every animal that comes through their doors receives a safe home, medical treatment, a spay/neuter procedure, and a great shot at a loving home for life.
Programs and services offered by the shelter include low-cost adoptions, humane education programs, lost and found pet reporting, a pet food bank, and a Safe Housing Program to temporarily provide care for the pets of people seeking assistance in times of crisis.
Heartland Humane Society strengthens the local community with these services that keep pets safely in homes and educational programs fostering compassion, responsible pet ownership, and safety with animals. The nonprofit is so dedicated to preventing unwanted animals and saving lives that they partner with other rescue organizations to transfer in animals from shelters that don't have enough space or resources to provide thorough care. Additionally, they operate a foster care program to provide animals too young or ill to thrive in a shelter environment the individualized, compassionate care they deserve. In everything that they do, Heartland Humane Society works towards a happier, healthier community where all companion animals have homes.
