"Great people, they truly love the animals". ~ Casey

"Good people looking out and caring for sweet animals who need homes." ~ Jacki

"Great people doing great things for animals. They're all about the animals." ~Vinnie

"I am a volunteer at animal care in Chicago who assisted in a transport of a mom, 4 of her babies and a 10 month old out of a kill shelter to safety, Heartland. The staff was super friendly, showed me around while I waited for them to transfer the cats. All the animals were well cared for and the place was clean. This would be a great place to adopt from if you want to expand your furbaby family! The more you adopt, the more they can save from animal care!" ~Michelle

"They've a lot of animals to pick from. Give them all homes!!" ~Derek

"Great place, I have gotten two beautiful souls from here." ~Rusty

"I love this shelter.  The staff is amazing.  I adopted my fur baby from there about two years ago.  He was heart worm positive and they walked me through every step of his care.  Would adopt from there again."  ~Iliana  

"I adopted my dog at Heartland two months ago to date.  After having adopted from shelters in the past, I knew the sad and cold feeling it normally is to walk into one.  I walked into Heartland and felt warmth and love.  They had my son and I wash our hands before seeing the animals.  We were there to specifically look at one dog we saw online however we wanted to look at the others as well.  The gentleman, Jack, that helped us through most of the process opened the dogs file and gave us all the information on the dog we were there to see.  He had just gotten there a few days prior as a save from a kill shelter.  I am so appreciative of them saving him because it was love immediately and he is now my other "son".  There was another lady, Jenny, helping in the process with the paperwork as well and she made the adoption process so easy and pleasant.  I am going to begin volunteering at Heartland this month as I was so impressed with the way they love and care for their animals there and I want to help the animals as well as the shelter to continue to provide all they do!  Thanks so much!" ~ Constance

"Heartland saved two wonderful dogs (Toto and Penny - AKA Pumpkin Pie) that have greatly enriched our family! Toto welcomed Penny and they soon had a running/playing sequence around the house at fast speeds. We had Aspen Fence erect a chain link fence as a Christmas gift (and try Cardinal Gates for an aluminum gate you can install inside or out). They are well-behaved on leash due to Christy's training, and like the newly fenced area. Both are intelligent, loyal and protective. They kiss each other in the morning, and like to be kissed on their heads. Another favorite is soft petting under the chin. Toto enjoys being brushed; both like baths. Much fun to watch them play together. Best vest harness we found is the one Heartland provided Toto - brand "Canine Friendly"/"RC Products", vented/perforated fabric Model #301 or not vented Model #300. This harness has a double handle in which to thread a vehicle seat belt. "Many Thanks!" to all at Heartland " ~ The Para Family

"Our daughter adopted a wonderful kitten from Heartland last winter.  Little Tinsel, was a delight.  Our daughter renamed him, Helo. He is part Siamese and a true treasure of a loving wonderful pet.  Heartland provided us with a healthy wonderful kitten.  THe adoption process was clear and professional.  Heartland is serving so many families in our area now.  Thank goodness for all those who work and volunteer there." 
~ The Boyer Family

"Three years ago we purchased from Heartland. I must say that the process was easy yet they were thorough about where the dog was going since I would be living on the Navy base. The dog was healthy and a welcomed addition to our family. Although we are content with one dog for the moment, we still keep an eye on what is at the shelter.....you never know. We now will be encouraging our daughter to assist as a volunteer this summer and of course, her mother and I will assist. Additionally our daughter has saved money which she has sat asside to purchase needed items for the shelter. Clean facilities, great staff, highly recommended to anyone looking for new pets."  ~ Mark
