ARA Donation Programs

ARA Donation Programs

Heartland has joined ANIMAL RESCUE AID in goal to help support local rescues and shelters with monetary donations Forgotten Shelter Program and or quality pet beds TheBlueBed Program. By clicking the links or the ARA image you can help contribute directly Heartland or donate to a pool that ARA will distribute among local rescues.

Any contributions are appreciated and will help us give the animals in our care a healthy and comfortable life while they await their Furever home.  

We couldn’t do what we do for the animals we serve without the caring and kindness of wonderful people just like you … We thank you in advance for your compassion for the animals who find themselves in shelters due to no fault of their own. Please join us as we try to “Give them a hint of home ~ while they wait for theirs”™
