Community Resources

Providing a helping hand to pet owners in need.

Community Resources

At the Nebraska Humane Society, our job is not done once a pet is adopted. We also work to keep pets in homes by providing services for pet owners who may need a helping hand. By offering resources, we hope to keep pets out of our shelter and in the arms of their loving owners. 

Pet Food Pantry 

Our Pet Food Pantry is open Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Center for Humane Education, located on the west side of our campus. This pantry can help tide over pet owners who have fallen on hard times. No appointment is needed. Food is distributed free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Project Pet Safe 

Project Pet Safe provides a safe haven for pets of domestic violence victims who are working with an advocate, to leave an abusive situation. Thanks to a cooperative agreement with the Metro Abuse Link Coalition, we work to arrange free temporary kenneling until pets can be reunited with loving owners. Send an email or call 402-905-3432. 


Once a month, shelter volunteers load up and deliver free pet food to any senior, with a licensed companion animal, who qualifies for Meals on Wheels. We understand that nurturing pets also nurtures their companions—on many different levels! Ask about Animeals at the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging when you sign up for Meals on Wheels at 402-444-6766. 

Project P.E.T.S

Project PETS (Pet Enhanced Therapy for Seniors) works to adopt pets to area care facilities and nursing homes, to provide residents companionship and unconditional love. Our trainers work with the staff of the facility to find and/or train appropriate pets who are docile, yet social animals, that love attention. Send an email or call 402-905-3472 for more information.
