Massive Rescue Underway - Please Help!

Heartland Humane Society is partnering with multiple other animal welfare groups to take part in a massive rescue effort and we need your help! We are working hard to place approximately 185 cats from an animal shelter in Southeast Missouri that has been given 60 days to transfer all of its cats to licensed rescue groups/no-kill shelters.  We have until the end of June to find placement for these cats or else they will be confiscated by the state and risk potential euthanasia. While multiple rescue groups are coming together to take in these animals, much help is needed from the public in terms of supplies, donations and families that are willing to adopt a cat in need!

Here is list of immediate needs:

  • Pet carriers
  • Scoopable litter
  • Litter scoops
  • Small food & water dishes                                                                          
  • Trash bags
  • Bottled water                                                                                                   
  • Cat food
  • Puppy pee pads                                                                                                              
  • Paper towels
  • Pet safe wet wipes                                                                                         
  • Rubbermaid containers (for supplies)
  • Clear packing tape (medical records will be taped to the carrier for each animal)

Supply donations can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Any Kennelwood Pet Resort location - www.kennelwood.com for locations
  • Olivette Veterinary Clinic - 3622 Olive Blvd., 63132
  • Creve Coeur Petco - 12519 Olive Blvd., 63141
  • Pet Doctor - 3046 Winghaven Blvd., 63368
  • PetSmart - 4621 Chippewa or 4451 Lemay Ferry Rd.

In addition to supplies, financial donations are also needed to help cover the cost of medical care for these animals.  Financial donations can be mailed to Heartland Humane Society, PO Box 113, O’Fallon, MO 63366 (please indicate "Southeast Shelter Rescue" on check); or submitted using the "Donate" button below.

One of the most significant ways to assist is to adopt!  Once these kitties are adoption-ready, they will be in need of loving, permanent homes. By freeing up space through adoptions, it allows groups like ours to help even more animals in need!

For more information on how you can help, please call us at 636-922-0569 or 314-497-1329.

Featured Pets:

Kibosh is a stunning Siamese Mix and came to Heartland with two brothers.  They boys tamed up right away and are long since adopted out.  The beautiful Kibosh is still skittish as can be and is not going to change her ways.  She loves other kitties but despite months of care she still does not trust humans.  She would be an excellent companion for a lonely kitty, has perfect litter box manners, shares food and toys and space with all cats; runs from me!  I am very patient with shy kitties and always appreciate good house etiquette, so she is most certainly safe here; but needs a forever home with more freedom and some friendly and playful fur friends.  Kibosh was rescued off the streets of St. Louis and quite often these street kittens faced abuse at the hands of humans and they have a hard time trusting again.  She loves her canned food every night and gets within six inches of me to eat it, but if I more toward her she will take off to a safe distance where I cannot reach her.  She was born in September of 2014 and is not yet full grown.  She is spayed, up to date on shots, treated for parasites (perhaps another reason she does not trust me), negative for FIV and FeLV, and micro chipped. 


This is Nala! She is such a sweetheart and is sure to make you laugh with her goofiness! She is a one year old pitbull/boxer mix with a beautiful tan and white coat and little white socks. She is crate trained and potty trained.  Nala loves to play with her toys, interact with her foster parents (she loves belly rubs and playing fetch), and gets along very well with our senior dog, Ben.  In fact, she would love to have another dog to play with and keep her company when her owner has to leave the house. When we began crate training Nala, she had some separation anxiety. We eventually decided to put both she and Ben in the same room with their crates side by side, and it worked like magic! She instantly became calm and would wait patiently for us to come back home. All she wanted was another doggie to keep her company! It is for this reason that she would do best in a home with another loving dog.

We do not have a fenced in yard, and she is perfectly fine without one, but we have been informed by her previous owner that she has a tendency to jump fences - probably due to the fact that she loves to chase squirrels, so if you have a fence, it will need to be nice and tall and secure.  She has been spayed, tested negative for Heartworms, microchipped, and current on vaccinations/Heartworm preventative – she is roughly 2 years old.  Nala is gentle, playful, and affectionate, and can't wait to find a forever home!

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!

Funnily enough,,, children also love the cat

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!
