My boyfriend and I were in the market for two kittens and after going to about five different shelters in the chicagoland area we found the perfect pair at heartland. This was mid january so we've had them for a few months now and they're great. The staff at heartland were very helpful and friendly. The next door hospital was a bit crazy when we took the kittens in on a Saturday but that's to be expected. Would recommend the shelter to anyone looking for a pet. Kittens came fixed and with all vaccines for a year included in low adoption fee.

We walked into Heartland on Super Bowl Sunday, searching to find a companion cat for our 15 year old cat, who lost her litter-mate last summer. This is one of the cleanest, brightest shelters we found on our month long search and the staff was wonderful.

The cat that "picked" us was recovering from coccidia and he and other cats suffering from the same illness were each kept in their own clean cages until they were no longer contagious. Heartland held on to him for a week until he cleared his meds (so our other cat would not get exposed).

In the end we adopted two cats - the cat that picked us and his litter-mate (sister) that was also at the shelter. The shelter made us aware that his sister was there (in a different cage) but did not pressure us to adopt them both. We felt strongly about keeping two bonded litter-mates together and brought them both home.

They are great cats - outgoing, loving, playful, and happy. They get along great with our original cat and the adoption process here was wonderful. By the way, Heartland remodeled their cat room in the past year and are in the process of doing the same to the dog area. If you haven't stopped by recently, please do. The new cat space is wonderful.

My girlfriend and I were looking for either another dog or cat to adpot. We looked at a few different shelters and were really impressed with this one. They dont have great facilities there to house the animals, but they make the best of what they have and really care for the animals there. The cats there are all getting cuddles and plenty of love and care and are able to roam around. The dogs are not able to roam around but the staff are walking them all constantly to give them plenty of exercise. The volunteer staff there are great and very attached to the animals and their different characters they have. They dont charge much to adopt their animals only just enough to cover the spaying or neutering fee if needed. I encourage all to donate anything they can to this shelter for the animals. Food, blankets or money will help this shelter accomodate as many animals as they can.

PROS: Excellent and caring volunteers
CONS:
