A Better Future

Welcome to Heartland Humane Society

Heartland Humane Society is a limited admissions shelter, which means that we take in animals by appointment and only when appropriate space and resources are available to care for them. Please call our shelter first if you plan on rehoming an animal.

Come visit our shelter at 3400 East Highway 50 in Yankton, South Dakota. We have cats and small animals on site. If you would like to meet our dogs (since they are in foster care), please call to set up an appointment or come to one of our Meet and Greet events that we hold once a month.

Our Hours:
Sunday - Monday: CLOSED
Tuesday-Friday: 10a-6p
Saturdays: 10a-2p
