Community Spotlight: Heartland Humane Society

Heartland Humane Society is a non-profi t animal shelter in Corvallis, Oregon with a mission to create a more compassionate community by teaching humane messages to youth, caring for homeless animals, and strengthening the human-animal bond.

Heartland has served the community for over 50 years with programs including animal adoptions, lost & found services, humane education programming for youth, a pet food bank, vaccination and spay/neuter clinics, and the Safe Housing Program, which provides confidential housing for animal companions of families in crisis.

Heartland’s vision is to carry out our humane commitment to the animals of Benton County by operating an open-door shelter and caring for homeless animals, providing education and enrichment programs to promote healthy human-animal bonds, offering access to low-cost services to those in need, with an emphasis on population control, developing progressive outreach programs, setting a high standard of animal care and husbandry, supporting opportunities for clinical education, and enhancing our funding resources to continue expanding these efforts.

The Heartland Humane Society Thrift Shop has operated for over 20 years with the mission to generate revenue to provide support for the animals and programs of Heartland Humane Society. The thrift shop accepts donations of furniture, housing goods, books, toys, collectibles, clothing, and accessories, and is staffed by volunteers.
