Volunteer Today


We enjoy the holidays and think vacation / holiday leave is a great time to adopt a pet. We also value our volunteers and staff and must close during some days to ensure time is spent with families. We apologize for the disturbance in our scheduling. The following changes will apply during the 2017 holiday season:

CLOSED: Sunday and Monday, December 24th and 25th for Christmas. We will reopen on Tuesday, December 26th.

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 re-homing 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
