Thank you for visiting Heartland Cats.

We are a no kill sanctuary specializing in caring for senior cats.  Not only do we work hard to find them forever homes but we also serve the community with several different programs.

One of Many Happy Tales of Heartland Cats

When she was found she was just a wee young thing at a few weeks old.  Abandoned outside, dehydrated, starving; her eyes barely opened and already one damaged and infected.  She was named Ursula and after many veterinarian visits and round the clock dedicated care by Tanny and shelter volunteers she grew strong and healthy, and while still needing medication she was able to keep her eye.

Today she lives with us. She has been renamed Poptart, Poppy for short, because of her amazing energy level and her incredibly happy outlook in life. Everything is an adventure or a game to be enjoyed and shared not only with her human companions but her feline ones as well.  She is quite vocal with little peeps and chirps accenting almost every move she makes. She loves chasing the red dot, fetching paper balls and most of all helping her people with everything.  Today she assisted me in cleaning out my over-flowing yarn stash by helping chase down and re-roll many balls of yarn.  She is a treasure and we are grateful to Heartland Cats for caring for her and giving us the opportunity to bring her into our family.    


 Some of our programs:

The Heartland Cats Senior Companion Program places older cats with senior citizens. Many who are retired would love to have a companion but either feel they cannot afford the expense or are concerned for the animal’s welfare in the event they can no longer care for it.

The Military Deployment Foster Program is designed to help ease the burden of active duty military when they are sent overseas, to temporary duty assignments or hardship situations. Click here for more information.

We also host an Everlasting Love Program to offer peace of mind to those who wish to make sure their pets are cared for if they pass away or may no longer be able to care for them due to health reasons.  Click here for more information.
