Heartland Animal Shelter alumni living their own happy tails.

These Happy Tails pages are dedicated to those pets from Heartland Animal Shelter that have found happy forever homes, and to the kind and generous people who adopted them. Do you have a pet from Heartland? If you do and you would like to have him or her (or them!) highlighted in a “Happy Tail,” please send an email or letter about how your pet is doing along with a picture or two.

Heartland wishes to thank all who have shared their pet adoption stories with us. Pet adoption is such a “win-win” act. Not only does a homeless pet find a home, but, in return, they bring so much love and happiness to our lives.
