The Nebraska Humane Society is one of the largest humane societies in the U.S. and more than 30,000 animals are brought to the shelter each year. The society is housed on a 13-acre campus with four buildings and employs 150 staff and 600 official volunteers.
Vital services offered by the Nebraska Humane Society include animal control services, shelter to thousands of animals each year and medical treatments for animals in their care. The society works to provide communities in Sarpy County and Omaha with a safe place to house stray animals and previously “unadoptable” dogs. The Molly Project rehabilitates fearful, aggressive and unruly dogs so that they can also find new, loving homes. In the first four years of the program, almost 2,000 previously-thought “unadoptable” dogs successfully maintained new homes.
Continued support is offered to those who adopt from the Nebraska Humane Society, training and other services are also offered to pet owners in the general public. Training classes, behavioral modification programs and a free behavioral helpline are offered by the society. To help owners in need, the society delivers pet food to elderly pet owners that no longer have the ability to leave their homes. The society also offers pet food to owners experiencing financial trouble.Learn more about Pets
