'Tis The Season for Giving!
This has been a tough year for Heartland... adoptions have decreased overall, but intake continues to increase because more and more animals are finding themselves homeless and in need of help! Strays off the streets, animals on death row at shelters, and pets who are surrendered by their families for various reasons... it never ends yet we aren't letting it stop us. We will continue to do everything that we can to help the animals who so desperately need us!
Unfortunately, donations have decreased as well, which has really taken a toll on us because our vet bills are higher than ever and with fewer adoptions and donations, our funds are quickly depleting. As much as we hate to ask for help, we must in order to continue in our mission of saving the animals who so desperately need us. So, as we approach the holiday season, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Heartland - every penny counts and is greatly appreciated! To make a donation via PayPal, click on the "Donate" button on the right side of the screen, or mail a check to: Heartland Humane Society, PO Box 113, O'Fallon, MO 63366.
In addition, you can also donate pet supplies from our Amazon wish list and have them shipped directly to us, and of course you can always drop by PetSmart in O'Fallon on Saturdays to bring donations! Tidy Cat scoopable litter is always a favorite, as is canned cat/kitten food and toys & treats. :)
Thank you for your consideration and generosity; our foster parents, volunteers and furry babies really appreciate it!
Wishing you and your loved ones (human and furry) a very happy holiday season!
All Fur One Fundraiser!
Attention holiday shoppers and fellow animal lovers, do we have an offer for you! We are excited to be doing a "One Fur All" fundraiser this month that offers something for everyone! Buy any of their candle, wax melt or air freshener products by December 14th and 20% of the proceeds will benefit Heartland Humane Society's foster animals!
If you are like me and have lots of pets (or even just a couple) and enjoy a nicely scented and cozy home, then be sure to check out their amazing products that will eliminate even the stinkiest of pet odors. They have many great items for the holidays so if you are looking for the "purr-fect" Christmas gift for a friend, family member or co-worker, then look no further because their products make awesome stocking stuffers!
To browse their products or place an order, please use this link - http://www.onefurallpets.com/?rfsn=412698.27d0d
Fundraisers like this one allow us to continue in our mission to save animals, but we need YOUR support to do what we do as we can't do it alone! It costs us a lot of money to help animals in need (our vet bills alone can run up to $8-9K per month) and fundraising is absolutely critical in ensuring that we have money to pay our vets and provide quality care for the cats/dogs in our foster homes.
So as you do your holiday shopping, please consider making a purchase through our fundraiser - not only will your loved ones be happy with a great gift, but you will be helping animals in the process!
Happy holidays and thanks for your support!

Meet Miss Cleopatra! She came to us from animal control who rescued her from the streets. Cleo loves to talk to her foster mom just like she is speaking like a human and is roughly 4-5 years old and she is very soft and enjoys cheek scratches! We are working with Cleo about her manners though. She does not understand that playing needs to be with soft paws and with no teeth. We don't feel that she is doing it out of meanness, just perhaps bad social skills from her past. Cleo is up to date on her shots and has been spayed & microchipped and is ready for a permanent home to call her own, preferably one without young children.
