Mama Sprite may only have one eye but that doesn't slow down this spunky, fun-loving orange tabby. Born in 2015, Mama Sprite was a very young mama. She lived in a couple foster homes and her foster families adored her. She even got along with the dogs in her foster homes! Mama Sprite is always ready for playtime, especially when it includes the laser pointer or cat dancer. She wants attention from her human friends but can get overstimulated when petted and give love nips, so we recommend she be adopted by experienced cat owners who don't have small children. Mama Sprite loves her human friends and will even have conversations with them! Mama Sprite is as curious as she is cute. Mama Sprite's eye was removed due to a detached retina and the beginning of glaucoma. Her other eye was not affected. If you are interested in knowing more, please ask our medical staff.

About Heartland Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Heartland Animal Shelter is a no-kill humane 501 c 3 organization dedicated to finding homeless pets forever homes while educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets in order to help with the pet overpopulation problem.

Dr. Herbert Preiser, DVM and founder of Heartland Animal Shelter wanted to make a difference by saving the lives of pets who might otherwise be euthanized because of the over-population of unwanted pets. Dr. Preiser opened Heartland Animal Shelter in October of 2002.

Heartland's vision is to eliminate euthanasia to any adoptable animal. Heartland asks for your support by spreading the word about the importance of why pets should be spayed or neutered in order to prevent overpopulation of cats and dogs. Together we can make a difference!
