All you have to do is present the attached flyer to your server (printed or on phone) and 10% of your food sales will be donated to Heartland!

Urgent Need for Food and Supplies

We need your help! We are in urgent need of food and other supplies for our adoptable pets and foster homes. With as many animals as we have in foster care, it doesn't take long for us to run out of critical supplies, like food and litter. Additionally, our vet bills have reached thousands of dollars and average $8-10K per month.  That's a lot of money for any rescue, but especially one our size.  Nonetheless, we pride ourselves on quality care, and that means no belly goes hungry. However, recently, our volunteers and fosters have had to use their own money to support some of our fur babies. Our organization is made possible through donations, so please consider making a donation that directly helps an animal in need.
There are several ways to help! To donate directly, please click this link to purchase an item from our Amazon Wishlist. Or, visit our donation link to make a financial donation. We also accept donation items during our adoption events at the O'Fallon Hwy K Petsmart on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. To make other arrangements, please contact us at info@hhsrescue.org.

Featured Pets:

Gamora was living outside, under a porch, in the city with her newborn kittens.  They were found by a good samaritan during a heavy rainy period and sadly, all but one of her kittens perished from exposure.  Her surviving baby, Rocket, will be available for adoption in July 2017.  Gamora is just as sweet, mellow and friendly as can be.  She absolutely loves people and will coo and chirp at you when she wants attention.  She is very gentle and accepting of other cats too; so much so that she immediately took to an orphaned kitten, Groot, who is now very bonded to her baby, Rocket.  By the way, if you haven't figured it out, these cuties are all named after characters from "Guardians of the Galaxy".  

Gamora is FIV+, which means that her immune system is not quite as strong as that of a non-FIV cat, but she has been nothing but healthy while in my care.  She should live a very long and happy life with good nutrition, regular vetting and being kept indoors; all things that every kitty should receive.  FIV cannot be passed to other cats unless through a deep bite wound (saliva to blood) and it is not transmittable to people or dogs.  Fortunately, Gamora loves all kitties and has never shown a bit of aggression towards them.  I usually find her cuddled up with and grooming one of the other foster kitties.  As such, she should do just fine in a home with other cats as long as they are friendly and not aggressive.  This link provides more information and common misconceptions about FIV - http://www.fivcats.com/FIV/fiv_common_myths.html.  

Gamora is the perfect mix of sweet, playful, and social and she would make a wonderful companion to a very lucky family.  She has very good household manners and LOVES her canned food.  She also enjoys a good game of feather stick and when she's tuckered herself out, she likes to perch on her cat tree by the window and watch the birds outside.  Gamora would do just fine with kids and would probably even adjust to a cat-friendly dog.  She is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations - DOB 11/8/14 - tag # 10606.

By adopting just one pet, you won’t change the world; but you certainly will change the world for that one pet! 
Save a life - adopt, don't shop!
Prevent a litter...
Neuter your critter!

I adopted Cassidy the Border Collie over six years ago. She is still doing very well. We moved to South Carolina over three years ago so that is why we haven't visited you all at Petsmart. I am happy to find you are still rescuing. Good luck!
