Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Heavenly Pet Sanctuary is a peaceful countryside refuge on 34 acres for homeless dogs and cats. We offer adoptions and also long term care and sheltering for pets who have special needs or who require time to rehabilitate.

Our specialty is the relaxing, natural environment where cats live in a homelike, cageless environment and dogs have very large, fenced, grassy outdoor enclosures with pools in summer and access to miles of walking trails.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are available for visitation Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm at the shelter which is at 2174 Key Blvd. in Fairfield, IA.

Directions to Heavenly Pet Sanctuary are easy. Once in the city of Fairfield head south from Burlington Ave. (Hwy 34) on Route 1 (or any southbound street) until you reach Fillmore, go west until you reach S. 7th St. and turn left; you are now on Liberty Dr. Follow this road and in less than a mile it leaves the city limits and you will be out in the country, where it becomes Key Blvd. The shelter is the first property on the right hand side, sitting on the right where the road turns sharply to the left. Turn in the driveway and you will immediately see our address, gate and sign. The main cat shelter house is right behind that, with one of our smaller cat shelter buildings on the left. There will be lots of animal greeters to show you the way!

Alternate Directions are: Take Rt 1 south from Hwy 34 (Burlington Ave.) to Libertyville Rd. (Hwy 43, the sign before intersection says Jefferson Cty Park); turn right and go under 1 mile to Key Blvd., turn right and the sanctuary sits on the left hand side on the bend in the road which goes to the right. There are pine trees out front, turn left into our driveway, through the red gate and you will see our sign on the right along with the cat shelter, park your car and welcome.

Directions coming in from Hwy 34: There is now a four-lane highway coming into town from the east and the west. From either direction you would exit on the 2nd Fairfield exit--Rt 1, Main St. and go north towards town; the very first intersection is Libertyville Rd. at the corner is the Jefferson County Hospital and you would turn left and then right at the first intersection Key Blvd and follow the directions above.

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a pet from Heavenly Pet you need to fill out our adoption application, the fees are variable from $25 - $50 for catgs and $50 - $150 for dogs. The application is available by e-mail and once received takes a day or two to process and includes a phone interview and sometimes a house visit for local applicants.

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.
