Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Heartland Humane Shelter & Care!

Who we are

We have a small and passionately dedicated staff that oversees the welfare of our animals and handles the daily operations of our animal shelter.  We deeply rely on and value our volunteers here. We recognize that they donate their many talents, time, resources, and energy to help us provide the best care for the animals entrusted to us.

There are many different volunteer opportunities to engage in here at Heartland. We depend on our volunteers to help care for the animals, to help socialize and prepare them for their forever homes, to assist with our education and foster programs, to help maintain the building and grounds, to spread awareness of our mission, and to assist in fundraising efforts to support our organization, among many other important contributions.
