Areas Heartland Small Animal Rescue Serves

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.
