This fun-loving furball was taken in by a stranger who was willing to help out a kitty in need. Unfortunately, no one came to claim him and Milo ended up at Heartland Humane Society! Here's some reasons why he'd be a great fit for your household!
Our sweet Henry came to us after stumping quite a few people with his predicament. Henry, a 107-pound yellow Labrador, lost the ability to use his hind legs overnight. No trauma incidents and no clear indicators on x-rays either. After a few nights' say with us, Henry and his parents traveled to Ames, Iowa to visit a veterinary school and try to formulate a plan of attack.
There's nothing quite like a two-for-one... especially when it comes to kitties! Meet Lanette and Laramie, two 7-month-old fur balls who enjoy kicking back, relaxing and enjoying all the treats! Heartland Humane Society always has a BOGO deal on cats, so here's why you should consider adding this pair (or at least one) to your family this holiday season!
The idea of microorganisms living in your body can be pretty frightening! Creepy-crawlies going about their business inside your stomach may not seem like a comforting fact, but it should be! Probiotics go to work every day to compete with bad bacteria – like salmonella and E. coli – so that they can’t take over and make you feel ill. Over one billion dollars are spent annually on humans consuming probiotics, but what about pets? Even though they have different digestive systems than humans, their guts need protection too!
Imagine spending over 100 days in an unfamiliar place with no family. It's a pretty glum prospect, but right now, that's Beatrice's reality. This poor girl came to Heartland Humane Society in AUGUST and is still searching for a new place to call home.
As we close in on December, we can’t help but look forward to the holiday season and all the joy that it brings! Whether you’re celebrating Festivus, Christmas, Kwanza, Boxing Day, or Hanukkah - time spent with family (human and furry) is time cherished. You aren’t the only one who’s excited! Here’s 10 pets who are just as amped up as you are!
Ready... Set... GO! Perla is a peppy pup searching for her forever home. Rescued from a Texas kill shelter and on the brink of being euthanized, Perla has been here in Yankton since August 1st! Shelter life wasn't too nice to this sweetie, so she's currently in a foster home - set up an appointment to meet this energetic girl!
Don't let her size fool you! Little chihuahua mix, Punky, is part guard dog, part fetch extraordinaire! She arrived in the shelter in late October after her owner fell ill & wants nothing to do with being there! Punky is currently in a foster home but looking for a more permanent situation.
Ah, winter holidays. The season of travel and outdoor adventures in warmer climates! Whether you’re road tripping across the country or taking a quick trip to a cabin up north, your furry companion is right along there with you! If you can’t bear the thought of leaving your pet behind with a sitter, there’s some things you’ll want to know to make your vacation getaway as smooth as possible. After all, pets need a vacation too!
Don't be alarmed by this black kitty - the United States is actually only one of three countries that consider black cats to be bad luck! Mel's been down on her luck after ending up in the shelter. So what do you say, will you be her good luck charm?
