Location
Heartland Humane Society

Did you know that when you adopt a cat you are actually saving nine lives? Well, maybe not quite. But you are saving at least two. Because when you take a cat home, there is room for another homeless cat to find a forever family.

Saving a cat this summer has never been easier, or less expensive, than during Heartland Humane Society’s Nine Dollars for Nine Lives event Saturday, June 14th – Sunday, June 22nd.

The shelter has participated in the 9 Lives promotion for three years, the event taking place a different calendar month each year. Participation in the event allows the shelter a chance at a $1,000 grant from Best Friends Animal Society.

The event includes all kittens and cats age nine months and older available for adoption at Heartland. You can view the available animals at www.heartlandhumanesociety.net or stop by the shelter at 3400 East Highway 50 in Yankton. Schmidt said kittens will also be adopted during this event at a reduced $25 fee. Normal fees for adoptions range from $50 to $60.

All cats available for the $9 promotion are neutered, completely vaccinated, and healthy.
