10/11/2021: Cat and Dog Intake by Owner Surrender is Temporarily Suspended

Our kennels are full and we’ve got more coming back from foster, so cat and dog intake for owner surrenders is temporarily closed. Please check back soon for more updates. Questions can be directed to staff at adopt@heartlandhumane.org.

Note: Small animal surrender is still open, and our doors will always be open to strays from Corvallis and Benton County.
