Dog Adoption at Heartland Humane Shelter & Care

 

Dog adoptions are by appointment.

Fill out our Dog Adoption Questionnaire, which tells us about your home and which dogs you’d like to meet. Once received, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.

Dog Adoption Questionnaire

  • Dog adoption appointments take place outside. As a municipal shelter, Heartland Humane houses stray pets and pets involved in law enforcement situations. Our kennels also host privately owned animals in our Safe Housing emergency pet boarding program. For this reason, we are unable to allow public access to our kennels but would love to bring our adoptable dogs outside to meet you.
  • Some pets will require more than one meeting with their potential adopter before they can go home. In this case, we will work out a schedule with you to facilitate multiple appointments with that pet.
  • If the dog you are interested in does not require multiple adoption meetings, please come to your appointment ready to take them home that day. We are currently unable to place holds on our adoptable dogs.
