Name Your Price adoption event at animal shelter

Heartland Humane Society announces a three-day “Name Your Price” adoption event this Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 26-28.

During the “Name Your Price” event, approved adopters can choose their own adoption fee on a featured 15 cats and two dogs currently awaiting forever homes. Normal adoption fees are $50-$125 depending on breed and age. Animals available in this promotion range from 4 months to 9 years old.

Because our local shelters are overrun with kittens right now, HHS hopes that offering the “Name Your Price” adoption promotion will lead to increased cat adoptions so we can make room to save more cats.

Adopters during the “Name Your Price” promotion will complete the adoption application and go through the same process for a typical adoption. Once approved, they will be able to choose their adoption fee.

When you adopt a pet from HHS, you’re getting a healthy animal that’s fixed and up-to-date on all of its vaccines, microchipped and more. The initial care put into each adoptable animal could easily cost more than $300, which gives adopters an idea of what their adoption fee includes.

You can view our adoptable pets online at or visit them at the shelter at 601 ½ Burleigh Street in Yankton. The shelter will be open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday. Those interested in adopting must arrive 45 minutes prior to closing times.

For more information, call HHS at (605) 664-4244.
