PET OF THE WEEK: Shoeless Joe
Shoeless Joe is a wonderful young cat. He is just adorable. He came to us as a stray with an injured bottom paw and nose and is a little timid at being held but loves to sleep with you on the bed and will rub all over you begging to be pet. He is such a lover. He will stand and make biscuits - or look like he is marching in place when he is happy!! He is fine with dogs, cats and kids although loud noises and fast movements sometimes scare him. He is so deserving of a home. He comes when called and is completely litter box trained. Although he is still young he is a little calmer - no need to worry about him running up your curtains or screen doors. Won't you give him a home - you won't be disappointed.
All cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations,FIV/FeLV tested and microchipped. A Jojo's adoption fee is $100. There is a $5 fee for credit/debit cards.

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.
