Featured Partner

First National Bank

First National Bank has had a long relationship with the Nebraska Humane Society. Members of First Nationals executive team have provided key leadership to our board of directors, and two have held the board chairman position.  In addition to providing board direction, and sage advice, First National has also contributed funding to the homeless animals. In 2016, their Community First Grant helped the NHS medical team save lives and give deserving animals second chances. And in 2017, the First National  sponsorship of our Dining with Dogs event helped make a memorable night for two-legged and four-legged participants, while also supporting the NHS mission. First National is truly a community partner!

Who We Are

The Nebraska Humane Society is a private non-profit organization that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes thousands of animals each year.  We also provide animal control services to Omaha and Sarpy County. As an open entry shelter we take in all lost, abandoned, unwanted and mistreated pets who have nowhere else to go. We work to return the lost, heal the sick and whenever possible, adopt the homeless. Toward that end we treat diseases, set broken bones, stitch up wounds, spay or neuter, microchip, and offer behavior help for scared and unruly dogs. We also work to keep pets in homes by educating pet owners, providing training and free behavior help, and promoting responsible pet ownership. Read More »

Where Your Money Goes

The Nebraska Humane Society is a private non-profit corporation that relies on private donations. We do not receive tax dollars, nor do we receive any portion of dues or donations paid to national animal welfare agencies.  We rely on funding from individuals, corporations and foundations to support the cost of sheltering tens of thousands of animals annually, our animal medical program, animal care facilities, adoption counseling, pet training and our behavior modification program: The Molly Project. NHS also works to generate income through our adoption fees, our Animal Outfitters retail store and services such as training classes, humane education camps, and private pet cremations. With community support we can continue this lifesaving work.
