Welcome to Heartland Humane Society

For public safety, the Heartland Humane Society Board of Directors has temporarily, but until further notice, approved the following policy changes:

1. The shelter is closed to the general public. Donations are accepted at the main door. We are not allowing the general public to visit animals. 

2. We are continuing to operate with admissions and adoptions, but are doing so by appointment only. If are wishing to surrender or adopt, call us at 605-664-4244 and we will return your call as timely as possible.

3. We are asking volunteers and our staff be responsible for their well-being and the well-being of our team. If you feel vulnerable to either contracting or spreading any illnesses, we ask do not enter HHS and notify our staff as early as possible.

We also want to remind you that COVID-19 has some concerned about their relationship and interactions with pets. Below is a link from the American Veterinary Association -…/animal-health-and-welfare/covid-19


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. Our intake hours are Tuesday- Friday. Please call our shelter first if you plan on re-homing an animal.

Adoption services are Tuesday - Friday, 10am to 5:30pm and Saturdays 10am to 2pm. We do encourage calling to check on an animal's status before traveling. All adoption are by appointment only during the pandemic. Some animals are in foster care and require an advanced appointment.

All animals currently adoptable are profiled on our "adoptable animals" pages.

Thank you for choosing animal rescue over other options.

Our Hours:
Sunday - Monday: CLOSED
Tuesday-Friday: 10a-5:30p
Saturdays: 10a-2p
