Heartland Humane’s Plans as Benton County Reopens

“Rocky here with an important announcement:
As Benton County enters Phase 1 of reopening, Heartland’s shelter will remain closed to the public until further notice. Animal services are still active by appointment, including adoption, surrender, and stray assistance.
The Heartland Humane Thrift Shop will be reopening as soon as possible, with restrictions and precautions that will keep customers, donors, and volunteers safe. If you’re interested in helping us resume this crucial revenue source, you can join the Thrift Shop volunteer team: Apply now!
We thank you for your patience as we keep safety and our ability to maintain caring for animals as our top priorities.
This has been Rocky with today’s breaking news. Stay pawsome, friends.”
