I'm a volunteer at the Wentzville Petsmart with Heartland and with the group that was there previously. Heartland is phenomenal. Julie, the other fosters and volunteers I've met are great. After many, many years of fighting myself not to adopt so many wonderful kitties, I finally gave in May 2021 and added Meredith and Mercedes as a hopeful foster-fail. I was a successful failure and formerly adopted them into our family. After 3mo of getting to know them at Petsmart, I couldn't change their names then, so they joined my Mishuti. My 3M girls! My dad's cat, Mao, also visits often and all the girls seem to like him so it's all M's these days. Wasn't planned so it must have been meant to be!

We adopted Micki (originally Mookie) from Heartland on July 2, 2005 at a Petsmart adoption event. Her picture in the adoption ad online did not do her justice. She was tiny and adorable. We walked her around the store to see if she was interested in us. She was!! She stayed right with us. Did not bark at the other barking dogs. Sat when we stopped walking. We knew right then and there she was going home with us!
We had a wonderful and amazing 14 years with her!!
With a broken heart we must say we lost her on July 4, 2020. We brought her to AVS in Bridgeton and they found a tumor in her abdomen. They did a late night surgery but after finding it was not going to be a good outcome, we told them to let her go. The hardest decision a pet owner has to ever make.
She was such a sweetheart. Everyone that met her said so. Our hearts are broken. We gave her a great life, but she gave us an even better one.
Thank you to Heartland for giving us the opportunity to bring Micki into our lives!

I adopted Hitch and Stowie back in 2010 when they were about a year old, they are going on 11 years old now. Both are sweethearts, and Hitch while he tollerates other people seems to be a one person cat, and that person is me. Stowie will demand attention from everyone.

I adodted Blitzen, aka Blitz or Blitzy in 2011 when he was 9 years old. He lived to be nearly 18 passing away a few months before his 18th birthday. He will be missed. He was a wonderful old man who loved attention.

The next pair of cats I got were were Micah now called Dino and my roommate/best friend adopted Parker. Parker never really bonded with my friend and adopted me as his human. When she had to move back home to help out her parents she couldn't take Parker with her, and asked me to keep him. Parker and Dino are still with me, and they are probably about 8 years old now. Both are very loving and adorable.

I actually ended up resucing my next cat Lucky at work when he was a two day old kitten. I reached out to Hartland for help. They got him to Snuggle Rescue, and when Lucky was old enough I adopted him back. The poor little guy had a rough start to life, but he had a great 4 years before I had to put him to sleep due to illness he couldn't fight any longer. Lucky was well loved and everyone loved his spunky attitude. He aways seemed to know when someone needed to be cheered up. He's missed by everyone who knew him.

A few weeks after Lucky's death, I got two new 5 month old kittens. Brair and Rose, now called Chy and Skittles. They are now going on 3 years old in March of 2020. They are lover cats. Chy like Hitch has decided I'm the person for her, and she really doesn't care for too many other humans, but will tollerate them. Skittles is outgoing and loves attention.

When my friends are asking about where I got my cats from I tell them Heartland, and tell them to adopt from there, since there are many wonderful pets just waiting for their furever home.

I adopted "Kendal" a little black terrier mix in Oct 2004. She made it to 15 yrs old and passed away 12/4/18.
I also adopted "Nabisco" AKA Dasher who was a 16 week old grey short haired kitten early 2005. He is now 14yrs old.
Now we are looking again for a new pup to love

Today we added Sammy to our family! He is a beautiful, sweet, and loving cat! He is the perfect addition to our family. I’m so thankful that Heartland was able to take him in and care for him until he found his forever home with us. We love him so much already and can’t wait for him to come out of his shell.❤️

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!
