Heartland Humane Society is a local, progressive, not-for-profit animal welfare organization. Founded in 1966, our mission is to build a more compassionate community by teaching humane messages to our youth, caring for homeless animals and strengthening the human-animal bond.
It probably comes as no surprise to hear that at Heartland, we want every animal to have a safe and loving home. What you might not know is that we do a lot for people, too. We reunite owners with lost pets, visit classrooms to educate children about humane animal care, provide safe pet housing for people going through tough times, and work with partner organizations to extend our impact. From medical care to animal rehabilitation, Heartland works every day to make our community a safe, healthy place for animals and the people who love them.
