Welcome to the new website for Heartland Small Animal Rescue! While most of the functionality of the website is up and running, we're still making updates. Please be patient with us and send us an email if you have questions.
We are a non-profit, 501c(3), rescue based in South Bend, Indiana. We focus our rescue efforts on companion animals that are scheduled for euthanasia in local shelters. While we have many of the animals you would expect, like dogs and cats, we also foster bunnies, guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, degus (brush-tailed rats), birds, and even the occassional lizard!
Because we don't have a physical shelter, we rely on a network of volunteer foster homes to provide love and care to the animals in our care until they find forever homes. If you're interested in fostering or volunteering, please let us know by completing the foster or volunteer application.
Our main adoption events happen at both PetSmart locations on Saturdays, but you can usually find us on Sundays, too, at the South Bend PetSmart. Our cats are scheduled in the adoption centers at both locations. Check out our events calendar to see where we are!
