The Heart of America Humane Society is a 100% volunteer organization working to find good homes for animals that are received at two shelters in the Kansas City area. We
do not have a shelter of our own but we have created cooperative partnerships with the
Prairie Paws Animal Shelter and the
Lee's Summit Municipal Animal Shelter.
Without a facility or paid staff, Heart of America Humane Society relies on its all-volunteer network of caring individuals to carry out its mission.
Many of our animals are cared for temporarily in the "foster homes" of volunteers.
This gives us the ability to build a history with them, observing and evaluating their behavior and traits outside of an intimidating shelter environment. That foster knowledge helps create a better match between an animal's personality and the home situation of a new owner. Animals available for adoption can be found either in our Petfinder.com listings, visited during the week at selected pet supply stores, or seen first hand at rotating, weekend "Adopt-a-Pet" Events.
