Animal Shelter of the Week: Episode 6 – Heartland Animal Shelter in Illinois

Dr. Herbert Preiser opened Heartland Animal Shelter in October of 2002 with a vision to eliminate euthanasia to any adoptable animal. Dr. Preiser, DVM and founder of Heartland Animal Shelter wanted to make a difference by saving the lives of pets who might otherwise be euthanized because of the overpopulation of unwanted pets. Since 2002, Heartland has saved thousands of lives and they continue to be advocates for homeless pets until no more adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized. At any given time, Heartland has around 140 pets available for adoption.
