To help with expenses as our costs continue to grow, the Heart of America Humane Society largely depends on people like you to provide the items we need to properly care for the animals. We ask that you please check this page for our current needs before you purchase donations or bring them to one of or events. As we receive donations our Wish List will continually change depending on how supplies last. We are also planning more regular updates to our Wish List so you will always know what we currently need. If you'd like to donate items to us, please review the list below to find out what items we need.
|Thank you so much for your donations and for keeping us supplied with necessities.|

Some community groups like Boy Scouts in the past have banded together their own local task force to help collect pet toys, cat litter, towels or small blankets - and donated the whole carload to Heart of America!
An elementary school "class project" can demonstrate early community involvement and helps today's kids become more aware of issues or situations they might not normally come into contact with, like the purpose of an animal shelter, having new pets to care for at home, finding 4-footed companions for retired or widowed owners, etc.
We've even heard of an elementary school girl who decided that instead of birthday presents for herself, she asked each party attendee to bring a small cat or dog toy to be donated to their local shelter!
Employees at the American Public Works Association collected items for Heart of America Humane Society at an office party. They held a "Dog Day" of summer and invited everyone to bring snacks, pictures of their pets and donations for Heart of America Humane Society. Two employees entered their cats adopted from Heart of America in the photo contest. Donations included lots of food, treats, toys and some cleaning supplies. A medium -sized carrier and some cash was also donated.
The Heart of America Humane Society (HAHS) recently received a huge donation from a very special person. Matthew Embers, a 10 year-old animal lover chose HAHS as the recipient of his family’s year-end donation. When Matthew’s parents, Richard and Christine, decided to make a year end donation to a local non-profit organization, they left it to Matthew to decide who would receive their generous gift. The family has a beautiful Golden Retriever and a genuine appreciation for animals so Matthew decided on an animal welfare organization. With a little research assistance from his parents, Matthew chose Heart of America Humane Society.
