December to Remember Adoption Event

Tuesday, December 2nd 2014 - All Day at Heartland Humane Society

Make it a December to remember by adopting a dog or cat for just $25 throughout the month. This promotion runs from December 1st – December 31st and only certain dogs and cats qualify. All of the dogs and cats selected for this promotion have been waiting a long time to find the right home.

The event includes select dogs and cats; all are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. You can view the available animals at www.heartlandhumanesociety.net or stop by the shelter at 3400 East Highway 50 in Yankton. If you have any questions on this promotion, please call the shelter at (605)664-4244 or email hhs3@midconetwork.com.

The adoption event is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s national mission of No More Homeless Pets®, which aims to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. Heartland Humane Society is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society, and offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
