139 dogs were adopted from Heartland Humane in 2020!


Adoptions are by appointment.

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions on public entry, we cannot guarantee the availability of individual dogs at the time of your appointment. We thank you for your understanding.*

Make an appointment to meet our adoptable dogs.

To set up an appointment, fill out an online adoption application: Dog Adoption Questionaire

  • Please specify the dog(s) you are interested in.
  • Staff will contact you to schedule an appointment once your application has been received.
  • Dog adoption appointments take place outside. We are unable to allow the public into our kennels at this time.
  • Some animals will require more than one meeting with their potential adopter before they can be adopted. In this case, we will work out a schedule with you to facilitate multiple appointments with that animal.
  • Due to safety restrictions on public access to the shelter, we cannot place holds on animals that are ready and able to leave the shelter. If the animal you are interested in does not require multiple adoption meetings, please come to your appointment ready to take them home that day.

Email adopt@heartlandhumane.org with questions about adoptions or individual dogs.
