Cute Little Guy Needed A Home Monday, July 14, 2014
By: Sheryl Lustgraaf
Our family is so glad we went to the NEHS and that we found a great dog, and he found a great loving family.
This cute little old and toothless guy, Stitch, needed a home, and we were thinking about getting another furry friend, after 2 yrs of missing Sid, our 15 yr old German Shorthair. We were on the fence about going through another heartbreak in the future, and also we have allergies to most animals and had been looking and previous looking didn't pan out with allergies. Then one day we went to the NEHS and met Stitch, and our allergies didn't trigger! It was a sign!! He is a well behaved (but has a distaste for fireworks and storms) dog, and we can't imagine why anyone would treat this adorable fluff ball badly. He loves to be held, has spunk and loves to crash on the couch with you. Our family is so glad we went to the NEHS and that we found a great dog, and he found a great loving family.
Watson Friday, July 11, 2014
By: Sarah Murphy
Adopting Watson from NEHS was a great decision for our entire family. He is a sweet and goofy boy that is loved by all of us!
After losing one of our two boston terriers, Stella, our family wasn't sure if and when we would add another dog to our house. We knew that our rescued boston terrier that was still with us would potentially have some issues with the introduction of a new pack member after spending all of his 10 years with Stella.
Then, my son and I visited NEHS one evening and met Watson. He seemed like such a sweet boy and who could resist those big, droopy eyes! We returned the next evening with the entire family, including our boston terrier, Dexter. With the help of our awesome adoption counselor, we carefully introduced Watson and Dexter. After thinking it over, we knew that Watson would be a wonderful new family member for us.
Watson has been home for a week now and we are all doing great! He LOVES his daily walks and does well on his leash. He loves taking naps on his new bed, our bed, the couch...really anywhere! Potentially his favorite place for a nap is on my lap...he has NO idea he is 50 lbs!
Watson is amazing with our 1 and 6 year old children. He loves to run around the backyard with our son and has been so great as our daughter crawls over and under him! Dexter and Watson are now co-existing peacefully...Dexter still lets Watson know if he doesn't agree with what he is doing, but they get along otherwise. We are working on crate training and potty training and both are progressing well. I am looking forward to our obedience class through NEHS next month with Watson so we both can get a bit more polish on our commands!
Thanks, NEHS, for being there for Omaha's animals in need and, for us, humans in need of a new family member!
The Best Cat in the World! Tuesday, July 8, 2014
By: Rebecca Williford
We found our newest family member at the Nebraska Humane Society
We decided to adopt a cat for our family. After searching and searching, I saw a cat - "Polo", who I just KNEW was the cat for us! When we visited with him in the greet room, we bonded immediately. When we brought him home, he hid for about a week, but now is all over the house, and unlike other cats I have encountered, never runs off to corners and "disappears". Instead, he is always front and center, hanging out with us, greeting us when we get home, even doing a trick where he likes to jump up on my shoulders and then snuggle. My 5 year old loves him, and my husband (who, ahem, shall we say - isn't a fan of cats), now loves him too!! Polo is the best cat in the entire world!

LillieMae Tuesday, July 1, 2014
By: Samantha Fender
I've never seen a dog with such personality! But that's my baby and I'm glad she's mine.
In November of 2013, I went to NHS looking for a new pet. I came across a cage with two sisters in it. The first day I was there I instantly fell in love with the first one, but unfortunently didn't have the time that day to adopt her due to work. So my mom and I left. We went back the next day and found out she was gone. I was so heartbroken I almost gave up. We then went and sat in the car until the adoption hours began. I filled out the paper work to see Casey (now LillieMae)and waited for my buzzer to go off. While I waited my mom went and sat by Lillie's cage and talked to her. The minute she came in the room she and I both knew she was coming home with me that day. So she did and boy let me tell you, I've never seen a dog with such personality! But that's my baby and I'm glad she's mine. Momma loves you LillieMae(:
Porkchop is home Friday, June 27, 2014
By: Alia Ward
After returning our first dog we found the perfect dog for our family.
On 17 June my 5 month old and myself came into the Humane society for the millionth time. After returning our first dog because she was not a good fit for us we found Porkchop. I admit I was a little skeptical at first because here was this chunky little puggle who sat at my feet, but Porkchop has turned out to be the sweetest dog I have ever known. He is great with my son and my husband and I could not have asked for a better fit. Porkchop has lost two pounds since we have had him home and the vet says he is on track to get to a healthy weight. we are very greatful to the Humane Society and blessed by God to have him. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. You really helped us find the missing piece to our family.

We love her and she has made herself right at home!
My husband and I had been discussing getting a dog for quite a while. NHS posted the Big Bang litter, and we got in the car and headed straight there! Litte miss Ivy was everything we wanted in a pup, sweet, snuggly, and calm. She has been great at home and we are so in love with those big coonhound ears and long legs! We love her and she has made herself right at home!
Cranberry the Cat Monday, June 16, 2014
By: Matilda Sink
She has brought a lot of joy to our home and house, since our other cat and dog has passed.
We went to the Nebraska Humane Society to look for a play mate for our little dog " Oddie" and when we didn't find the right play mate in a dog , I decided to look in the cats and the gut feeling that I got when I seen Cranberry in her box, I decided she was the one. I met her and Oddie met her through the window , he licked the window when her face was up at it. I new they would get along. To this day they play together, sleep together, and drink water together and they chase each other through the house. Oddie and us would be lost if we lost cranberry, She has brought a lot of joy to our home and house, since our other cat and dog has passed.
I want to Thank You Nebraska Humane Socity for bring cranberry in our lives.
A long overdue success story Saturday, June 14, 2014
By: Chuck Tracy
ADOPT A BLACK CAT !!!
As the title indicates, this a long overdue success story as I adopted my black cat Reggie in January of 2006. I was shown several cats that day and Reggie was the only one that didn't purr. He just sat next to me, staring me down, never losing eye contact. Years ago, we had another Reggie in our family, a little black dog, so Reggie didn't know it, but he already had an "in" with me. I decided to take Reggie home with me. The staff tried to get me to take another cat, but, having never had a cat before I said "let's see if I can keep this one alive for 6 months and then we'll see about another one." Well, it's been almost NINE years now and I can't imagine this house without him.
Realizing that he was getting lonely while I was at work, I adopted another little black cat in January of 2008. They became fast friends and remain so to this day. Oh, and about that whole "not purring" thing? Reggie jumped in the bed the first night he was here and purred both of us to sleep.
Thank you NHS for all you do!
