The Nebraska Humane Society is a world class facility offering safety and care for animals in our community who need our help. NHS also provides animal control services to Omaha and all of Sarpy County, upholding the laws enacted for the protection of people and animals. As an open entry shelter, we don’t turn anyone away who needs a place to go. Ever. We provide education, encourage adoptions, and promote responsible pet care for our community.
In 2016 NHS:
- Adopted out 11,097 pets
- Spayed/neutered 6,414 dogs and cats
- Performed 1,549 specialized surgeries
- Fostered 2,068 animals in 241 foster homes
- Provided behavior help to 3,197 callers
NHS also returned nearly 3,000 pets to their owners; offered low-cost training classes, spays, and neuters; offered a free pet food pantry; was a safe haven for animals of domestic violence; and provided pet safety and animal care presentations to schools across the metro.
Pay it Forward
NHS is a private nonprofit corporation. Animal Control is funded through the cities who contract for those services, but all shelter programs including rehabilitating and rehoming of animals are funded through private donations. Our volunteers donate time and talent to walk dogs, enrich cats, counsel for adoptions, help market pets, and foster those needing TLC in their homes!
