The Board of Directors and Executive Director of Heartland Animal Shelter are excited to announce that we are in the final phase of purchasing our very own building, located in Wheeling, just three miles from our existing shelter. Our new building will allow us to plan for the long-term future of the shelter and continue Heartland’s mission in a modern, up-to-date facility that will be better for the animals by creating a more safe, sanitary and welcoming space for them while they are in our care. 

New Address:
586 Palwaukee Ave

Wheeling, IL

We hope you share in our enthusiasm about this exciting news!

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