The Nebraska Humane Society was founded in 1875. It is the fifth oldest humane society in the nation, and, today, is also one of the largest. They offer shelter to animals who have no place to call home and provide vital services to them and to the people who love them. Every year, more than 30,000 animals, including wildlife, find their way to our doors. Through our programs, they touch the lives of more than 200,000 people annually with their message of compassion and humane treatment for all living creatures. They are housed on a 13-acre campus with four buildings, 150 dedicated staff members and 600 volunteers.
They provide animal medical services to animals in our care. They offer training classes and behavior modification programs, a low cost spay/neuter center, humane education programs, a free behavior helpline, a pet food pantry for residents in economic distress, Project Pet Safe for companion pets of victims of domestic abuse, and Animals, a program to deliver pet food to elderly pet owners who no longer have the freedom or ability to leave their homes.
