Pet Surrender

Heartland Humane operates an open intake-shelter for pets in Benton County. We will never turn away a pet in need because of poor health, age, or breed. Limitations on intake may be temporarily placed in response to lack of space.

Surrendering Your Pet

Intakes of surrendered animals is by appointment only. This service is for pet animals. Feral cats can be neutered or spayed and then returned to their territory through our Trap, Neuter, and Return program, but are not good candidates for shelter animals. If you are working with a cat that cannot be handled, please call the shelter to discuss TNR.

If you live in Benton County or Corvallis, please fill out the appropriate profile below. You will be contacted by staff to schedule your appointment.


Intake by owner surrender is temporarily closed. Please check back soon.
