HEA Volunteers and the COVID-19 impact:
Due to the details surrounding COVID-19, as well as the Safer at Home order issued by Governor Tony Evers on Wednesday, March 25th, we have placed a temporary hold on our volunteer training program. The safety of our companion animals, our volunteers, and our community is our number one priority.

We will reopen our training program as soon as these orders have been lifted. Please continue to check back on our website and our Facebook page for updates. Thank you for your consideration of the cats and dogs at HEA!

Since our founding in 2006, we have seen great progress in the companion animal welfare world. Needless killing in shelters continues to decline. Organizations across the country are moving toward a no-kill measure. The agreed upon no-kill measure has been defined as a 90% live release rate. Our view is that 90% isn't enough. We are determined to see the day when the remaining 10% receive continued care and love too.

Innovative solutions are produced when killing is removed from the equation.
