Welcome to Destination HEA. We're proud to bring this innovative experience to the world of companion animal welfare. When you choose to stay with HEA, you'll come to understand unconditional love at a whole new level. You'll meet dogs and cats that count on HEA for refuge and their very own happily ever after. That's because our mission is to provide a loving home to every companion animal that enters our care. Lifetime guaranteed.
The guest cottages at HEA give our animals the chance to experience something truly life changing - a sleepover with YOU! Recent studies have shown that one night out can significantly reduce cortisol levels (stress) in a dog. This is also a great time for the animals to get a different kind of socialization. For approved adopters, this will give you additional time in a home-like setting for you to meet and bond with the animal before taking them home forever.
Whether you are an approved adopter or in search of snuggles for a night (or many nights!), we welcome you out to our Sanctuary in Marion, Wisconsin for a sleepover in one of our two guest cottages. The cottages are equipped with a bedroom, living room, kitchenette, bathroom, and an outdoor gathering area. The animal you choose to stay overnight with will have a sleepover bag packed with supplies.
The Community Cottage
The Lee & Kathy Anderson Community Cottage is a social hub for the Sanctuary. It contains our volunteer break space, a dog shower, laundry facilities, and a bathroom. The large deck is equipped with a grill. In the outdoor area surrounding the cottages, you will find a fire pit and wonderful views to be enjoyed.
