Apply to adopt a cat from Heartland Animal Shelter.

Heartland Animal Shelter reserves the right to approve or deny applications. Applications are considered with the best interests of the animals in mind and should not be construed as a reflection on the applicant. In order to adopt, applicants must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older and a U.S. citizen,
  • Have the consent of all adults living in the household,
  • Have a valid state-issued ID with current address, and
  • Have a current lease or landlord’s name and phone number for verification that pets are allowed (for renters only).

Please Note: False or omitted information will result in an application being denied.


When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces him.
