Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Heartland Small Animal Rescue is a group of volunteers serving South Bend, Indiana, and surrounding cities. We do not have a physical shelter, but a group of volunteer foster homes. Almost all our animals come from local shelters. We take in the animals that would normally be euthanized by the shelters. Occasionally we take in other animals on a case-by-case basis.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a group of animal-loving volunteers who work toward reducing the euthansia rate in Michiana. Our volunteers work tirelessly to rehabilitate and re-home pets in our area. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit and have no paid staff. Without our volunteers, we would not be able to save all the animals we do! If you would like to volunteer, please contact us!

Come Meet our Pets:

We hold adoption events on select weekends at Petsmart in South Bend and Mishawaka. We also hold other events throughout the year. You can also contact us directly regarding a pet seen here and we will set up a time for you to meet them in person. You can see our full calendar of events on facebook or email info@heartlandsmallanimalrescue.org.

Our Adoption Process:

All of our dogs, cats & ferrets are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We try to spay/neuter all of our rabbits as well. Small animals are usually not altered. We have adoption applications, a short interview process, and an adoption fee for each animal. All animals (except rabbits & small animals) are up to date on all shots.

Adoption Fees:
Puppies (under 6 months) $225
Adult Dogs $225
Senior Dogs (over 7 years) $75

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
