About Heartland Pet Connection

Heartland Pet Connection is a 5,000 square foot facility providing a safe haven for lost or surrendered pets and an opportunity for many families to find the perfect forever friend. Our mission is to serve as a voice for the humane treatment of all animals and better the connection of people to pets through education.

The Heartland Pet Connection is owned and operated by the Hastings Animal Shelter Association, Inc, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization founded in 2001. We are a non-profit organization, not managed by city or county government.

The concepts of changing the community's animal shelter was originally introduced to the community as The WAGS Project - Wonderful Animals - Great Space. It was born out of the compassion felt by many of Hastings area residents who wanted to improve the lives of hundreds of animals that passed through the dilapidated city animal shelter. The original WAGS Project was a grassroots effort that has expanded into a variety of avenues all carefully designed to serve the needs of people and animals in this community.
