News & Events
We are extremely proud to share with you that 2019 marked one of our most successful years of helping cats and dogs in need. We rescued and adopted out even more animals in need this year and are proud to have achieved an exceptional 98% save rate in 2019, even with our increased focus on rescuing the most vulnerable populations of animals – those with severe medical issues or special behavioral needs. It is through continuing to work together, build relationships and support the community that we will soon help the Chicago area reach no-kill status so that every adoptable animal is able to find a home.
Thank you to everyone who spread the word about Heartland. Thanks to all who adopted, fostered, volunteered, and donated. Also, a special thanks to our amazing staff members who work so hard on behalf of the animals. The support and love you showed Heartland in 2019 resulted in almost 1,000 lives saved, and far more impacted.
