Our first cat has melted our hearts
Never in a million years would I think I would own a cat, but then one day I visited the Human Society and this little kitty came up to the glass to greet me. I thought to myself: Could this little guy fit into our family of furry friends? After having Marley in our life for a month, he has became best friends with our two labs and has melted our hearts. I could not imagine my life with out him. He is full of energy and life, and he makes us laugh everyday of all the crazy things he does.

Tucker is LOVED SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
We were sad in October when we lost our Brittany at 13 1/2 years that we had had since he was a pup. We had decided we would get a small dog in the spring or summer. I had been looking at websites for different rescues though because we are such dog people. The night before we were going to go look at a certain dog online, I prayed that only if it was meant to be for the dog and us and it was a good fit for our family, that we get a dog now ... earlier than planned. He was very skittish at first and has had some minor behavior issues we have been working with with great vets helping guide us. We started puppy classes as well this week. He is a PERFECT gift and blessing from God to our family. He was loved literally on the spot when the family saw him. He has adjusted so well to our home. There are a few things we are working on, but he loves all of the attention our kids give him – whether playing fetch with him inside or out, brushing him, cuddling and kissing him, running around with him inside or out, and much more! He is already in a routine where he sleeps with us on the bed from day one and loves to wake up the kids at their time with kisses and paws on them. They LOVE it! He was being interviewed with another family right before us even though we got there 15 minutes early before adoption started. We were devastated that he may not be going home with us, but I told our youngest that if it is meant to be, it will be, and maybe the other people need him more. Otherwise we will get a different one someday. We were sad though, but so grateful later when we had an interview and it was a good fit, so we almost ran out of the door with excitement -- and him. He TRULY is a great fit for us so THANK YOU for helping us ease the pain of losing our first dog.
Meet Webster! Thursday, January 8, 2015
By: Lydia Pfeifer
Thanks to all the staff and the Humane Society for all the hard work you do, and for pairing us with Webster!!
My husband and I were already the proud owners of a 1-year-old female Boxer mix named Irie (I-ree) when we decided to add a playmate to the family. We loved her energy level and size, so we wanted to get a dog that was similar in all those characteristics. We had our eye on a female that had been at the Humane Society for a few months, but unfortunately, the meet and greet did not go well, and the other female started getting aggressive. We were disappointed, but luckily the Humane Society staff had some other dogs in mind. We met with two other dogs that day, one a Boxer/Lab, and Webster, a Boxer/Pit mix. Irie and Webster hit it off and were two peas in a pod. They had the same play style and seemed to love playing together. After some discussion, my husband and I decided to take Webster home. He has been a great addition to our family and definitely keeps Irie busy! We were told that he had some behavior issues (jumping up when excited, etc.), but we were very familiar with these issues, as they were also something that we worked with our original pup on. With that being said, the behavioral staff at the Humane Society obviously did some good work with Webster. He has good manners and is such a sweetie. Thanks to all the staff and the Humane Society for all the hard work you do, and for pairing us with Webster!

Smokey has fit right in as if sent by Skitty to help us all get through our loss
The day after Thanksgiving, our 14-year-old, formally feral male cat named Skitty passed due to lung failure. We miss that loveable 15-pound cat terribly, as did our 15-year-old male cat, Spaulding. Spaulding would wander around looking for Skitty so we knew we had to find him comfort. We needed it, too. On December 19, 2014, we visited the PetSmart on 72nd Street, knowing they had kittens available from the NHS. We found a litter of 6 males, 10 weeks old. The little guy that got up to meet us was perfect. Gray in color and so friendly. We hadn't had a gray cat before. His name was Prince, and he wanted to go home with us. We adopted him and on the trip home we decided to name him Smokey. No particular reason other than his color. Upon arriving home, we read the instructions on how to introduce Smokey and Spaulding. It sounded pretty far out, and with Spaulding having had a roommate, we introduced them in about an hour. They took to each other immediately. They both checked each other out and it has been amazing to see how well they got along. No hissing, growling or any of that at all. Spaulding is totally at ease with his new buddy, having missed Skitty. They lay together frequently, as the pictures show. Smokey is a live-wire kitten for sure, but Spaulding takes it in stride. We will always miss Skitty as he was very special, but Smokey has fit right in as if sent by Skitty to help us all get through our loss.

We can't wait for them to grow old with us!
Thank you for all your kind efforts at the Nebraska Humane Society! We just adopted two kittens from you just a few days ago. 5-month-old Rudy (formally Buttercup) and 7-month-old Charlie (formally Lilith) are settling in just fine. They are loving, playful and want lots of cuddles. Rudy and Charlie are in their Forever Home now and we can't wait for them to grow old with us!
Jack and Rose Friday, January 2, 2015

Thanks to the Humane Society and Jack and Rose's foster mom! Be assured, they are happy and enjoying their new home!
We adopted Jack and Rose just a few days ago. Our 21-year-old cat passed away in June and we decided we were ready to add some new family members. Jack had a rough life prior to joining us and is/was recovering from surgery. His foster mom did a great job and he is doing just fine. Jack and Rose have quickly made our home, their home. They are already sleeping with us each night and have already picked their favorite place to play (running up and down the basement stairs with their play mice in their mouths). Anyway, I wanted to thank the folks at the Humane Society for their patience with us during the process and the wonderful job that they do each and every day!

A wonderful birthday present
When we first met our new kitty, she liked my husband more than me and he was trying to find me a birthday kitty. Now she loves me more than anyone else.

She fills a void
I adopted Faith in August. She has made some major changes and now has a sister, Gracie. Faith is 7 years old and has learned her place. She loves to unwind on the couch. She's still learning how to play with others. She fills a void. Thanks for the oppurtunity to find her.
