PETS OF THE WEEK:  Titan & Oh Henry!

Titan is a HUGE lovable male cat - weighing in around 14 pounds.   He is the size of a small dog and has the heart of pure gold.  He is super friendly and does a little chirp when you pet him.  He loves to play with ping pong balls and is completely litter box trained.  He free roams at his foster Mom's house and gets along great with other cats, kittens and kids - he doesn't run away and hide.  He is not a big fan of dogs but he holds his own and doesn't let them bother him.  He would love to have a home of his own - you have room for this big lug?

O'Henry is the sweetest 5 year old male cat you will ever meet.  He is super social and doesn't run and hide from you.  He is front paw declawed and completely litter box trained.  He does fine with dogs but would prefer to be King of the house as far as cats go.  He loves to chase a ping pong ball and a laser light.  He is super gentle and would do fine around kids too.  Please give this BIG boy a home to call his own...just look at that face.  How can you resist.

All cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, FIV/FeLV tested, and microchipped.  The adoption fee for cats is $100 for ages 12 weeks to 2 years, and $50 for ages 3 and up.

Heartland Small Animal Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)3 rescue based in South Bend, Indiana.

Heartland Small Animal Rescue was originally founded to rescue small pocket pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small & furry animals from shelters and adopt them out to forever homes through our established adoption program.  A few years later, we expanded the rescue to include cats and in 2010 we expanded again to include dogs. Since then, our rescue has significantly grown as we continue to rescue pets in need from our local shelters as well as other high-capacity shelters throughout the Midwest. When space is available, we also accept pets from owners who are no longer able to care for them.  We recently went through yet another expansion and are now welcoming reptiles and birds into the rescue. 

As our rescue continues to grow, so do our needs. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities; everything from exercising dogs in our kennel enrichment program, support crew for concession-stand fundraisers, bakers and sewers for our craft booths, and a cleaning crew for our cats in the adoption center at PetSmart. However, our two biggest needs have stayed the same throughout the years: we need foster homes for our rescued pets and monetary donations - without these, we would not be able to continue our mission of helping the animals who need us most.
