The purpose of the Heartland Cats is to work with the community, local shelters, rescue groups and veterinary offices to take in cats that might otherwise be running out of options due to medical problems and/or space constraints.
We are a "no kill" shelter concentrating our efforts on the older cats, as these are least likely to be adopted. In order to place these animals in loving homes, we have developed our Senior Companion program. You can read about this program at ww.heartlandcats.org.
Since we work with area shelters and rescues, we do not normally accept surrenders or younger cats.

Our Adoption Process...
We prefer you come to our shelter to meet our cats. There is a form you will need to complete and should you decide on a cat there may be a 24 to 48 hour wait period. We like to make sure the cat gets a final health check prior to leaving the shelter. There is an adoption fee for those cats not placed through our Senior Companion Program. We reserve the right to deny adoption privileges at our sole and absolute discretion for any disclosed or undisclosed reason.

Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
