Heartland Needs Your Support

Funding to our shelter has dropped significantly with the closure of our Thrift Shop, but our life-saving work with animals hasn’t stopped. We need your help now more than ever:

Monetary Donations Keep Heartland Open to Animals

Donate directly to shelter operations. Donate Online or visit our Donations Page for other methods.

Your Pet Food Donations Keep Animals Fed

Our #1 need is always high quality dry cat food. We aren’t picky about brand; as long as the first two ingredients are meat proteins, our cats are happy. We use adult, kitten, and senior dry cat foods, or you can purchase ‘All Life Stages’ food.

Monthly Giving Guarantees Our Work Will Continue

Join our Circle of Kindness monthly giving program. Join at any level and know that you are creating a better future for the animals. Join Now
