Heartland is taking in cats and kittens every day, with more coming in as the season progresses.
You can help provide supplies and medical care so these cats and kittens have the best chance at
staying healthy and finding a loving home.


Heartland Humane’s animal shelter is open-intake.

We will never turn away a Benton County pet in need because of poor health, age, breed, or temperament. Saving lives since 1966. Find us on Oregon’s No Kill Network.

Our shelter is location-based, serving the pets and families of Benton County and Corvallis with lost-and-found pet services, low-cost adoptions, animal welfare programs, and humane education.

Our services are available by appointment. Details on our operations during Summer 2020 can be found at the bottom of this page.

Summer is here. Protect your pets.

Indoors or out, pets need access to plenty of water on warm days. Outdoor pets need access to shade and protection from the elements.

Don’t leave your pet in the car! Heat stroke is deadly and can happen quickly. Refer to the chart below to see how rapidly the temperature rises in your car, even on mild days and with the windows cracked.


COVID-19 Update for the Shelter: June 11th, 2020

Stray services are still active, and our Pet Food Pantry is open. We thank you for your patience as we keep safety and our ability to maintain caring for animals as our top priorities.

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.
