Shelter Notice: State-wide restrictions on surgeries have temporarily suspended intake in our barn cat program. Questions can be sent to adopt@heartlandhumane.org. Our other animal services will remain active while the shelter is closed to the public. Please visit our homepage for more information.


Heartland frequently receives feral, semi-feral or stray cats that are not suitable to be traditional pets. These cats would love the opportunity to earn their keep controlling rodent populations and patrolling your barn, farm, or rural/industrial property!

All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, ear-tipped, vaccinated (FVRCP and rabies) and dewormed. It is a $40 adoption fee for barn cats.

PLEASE NOTE: barn cats require a consistent source of food and fresh water as well as shelter where they can keep out of the elements and escape predators.
