Heartland Animal Shelter has been saving lives of homeless pets since 2002.
Dr. Herbert Preiser, DVM and founder of Heartland Animal Shelter, wanted to make a difference by saving the lives of pets who might otherwise be euthanized due to overpopulation. Driven to make a change, Dr. Preiser opened Heartland Animal Shelter in October of 2002.
Heartland’s staff and volunteers are committed to giving our pets everything they need to be healthy and loved.
Heartland rescues pets from various situations and each pet arrives with their own unique needs. Some of our pets require medical care, some require emotional support, some require behavioral help, and all require good old TLC (Tender Loving Care). Heartland’s staff and volunteers are committed to giving our pets everything they need to be healthy, to be the best they can be, and most importantly to feel loved. Heartland asks for your support by spreading the word about the importance of why pets should be spayed or neutered in order to prevent overpopulation of cats and dogs. Together we can make a difference!
Heartland’s mission is to provide care, humane treatment and adoption for dogs and cats in need through community outreach, progressive programs and partnership collaboration.
Heartland’s vision is to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia for every adoptable dog and cat within our community and for all of our shelter and rescue partners.
