Heart of America Humane Society

In Pursuit of Finding Every Pet a Home

About Us

Heart of America Humane Society is a 100% volunteer organization working to find good homes for animals. We do not have a shelter of our own, instead we have created a cooperative partnership with the Lee’s Summit Municipal Animal Shelter and Kansas City Kansas Animal Services. We have adoption events most Saturdays at PetSmart Olathe, PetSmart Overland Park, and PetSmart Lee’s Summit.

Our Foster Homes

In addition to working with local shelters, we also have a network of volunteer foster homes. Fostering gives us the opportunity to observe and evaluate an animal’s behavior and traits outside of the intimidating shelter environment. That foster knowledge helps us create a much better match between an animal’s personality and their new human(s).
