We urgently need new volunteers!  Visit our Foster & Volunteer page for more information.

PET OF THE WEEK:  Foxy Roxy

Foxy Roxy is a Boxer/Catahoula mix with a striking white coat with black spots. Her coat is very soft and she enjoys being petted and loves belly rubs. She is medium sized, about 35-40 pounds. Foxy Roxy gets along with cats in her foster home, but she can be selective with her doggie friends. She is potty trained and does well in her room during the day while her foster mom is at work. Foxy Roxy enjoys investigating the yard and she is learning to walk on a leash. Foxy Roxy is putting on some much-needed weight, because of her need to gain weight she does need to be supervised while eating or placed in a crate while she eats. She enjoys raw hides, doggie treats and the occasional hot dog. Foxy Roxy would love to be in a home where she can be loved and spoiled.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. An adult dog's adoption fee is $200

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.
