Our Mission

Heartland Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter and a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.  We depend on your donations in order to rescue more pets from ill fate as well as care for our current pets.  Adoption fees are based on vaccinations, medications, microchips, and procedures such as the spaying and neutering of rescued pets.  We can only help our current and future pets when additional donations are made.  As a private shelter, Heartland operates with income provided by adoption fees and donations from the public.  We receive no government funding.


Our Mission Statement:


To find permanent, loving homes for homeless animals and promote responsible pet ownership through education, community outreach and collaboration while maintaining respect and compassion for all creatures.
