We welcome Ryder to our lives!!! Friday, March 7, 2014
By: Jenn Brockman
Life begins the minute you open up your heart no matter what age they are!!
It was one week ago today that we officially welcomed our newest member to our family. Ryder Sebastian Brockman proudly joined our family last friday and has instantly become a very important part of our lives and my "shadow". He is a handsome and extremely lovable 6 year old German Shepherd Mix full of excitement and eager to please. I had been without a dog in my home with 3 years and came with some hesitation about adopting a puppy and while they are cute and lovable, there is something to be said for the older dogs too! They can charm you just the same. While Ryder's bio says he can be a little agressive at times, I have found him to be the most "chill" dog ever and would define him as "Excited" to see you at the end of the day not agressive. I am so very happy that Ryder chose us to be his family and we are extremely lucky and grateful for the Humane Society to allow up to adopt older pups that want to live out their "golden years" in a loving house full of fun and great times! Although he has a tiny bit of seperation anxiety when I leave him he is fast learning that he is NOT going anywhere and is VERY loved and cared for and will be SPOILED ROTTEN!!! As it should be. A send a HUGE Thank you for the Humane Society for helping me find my new best friend!!!

We love him to the moon and back.
Ozzie, formerly known as Beau, adopted us in November 2010. He was a four-year-old lab mix who had ended up at the NHS as a stray twice in his life. He loves running with his dad, playing tug-of-war with his sister (a black lab), flushing rabbits, getting belly rubs, and doing tricks for treats. Despite all the compliments he gets for being so handsome, he never lets it go to his head. He has been a great addition to our home. We love him to the moon and back.

A very good puppy!
Just wanted to let you know that Gunner (you called him Mambo) is fast becoming a member of our household. We've only had him a week and he has made great friends with our two cats Callie and Josie and our dog Jake. By the way, all of our pets have come through the Nebraska Humane Society.
We love the little guy and we look forward to more training given to us by our puppy!

She's the best dog ever!
Dixie is the best dog I've ever had! we got her when she was 4 months old, and she was so tiny, my daughter could push her around in a doll stroller! Now she's happy and fat like a beagle should be! THANKS HUMAINE SOCIETY!!
Tommy is wonderful! Saturday, March 1, 2014
By: Rhonda Maas
He is the sweetest, smartest, happiest boy.
I just wanted to give an update on Tommy, the 3-year old male Whippet mix I adopted from NHS on Thursday, February 27. He has come out of his shell and is the sweetest, smartest, happiest boy! He crates beautifully (but managed to get out while I was at work yesterday, so reinforcements are needed!). I took him to work with me for the afternoon, and everyone just loves him. He settled down after about 15 minutes, and at one point, he put his chin on my shoulder and just stayed like that for about 2 minutes. I hugged him and cried, knowing that this was his way of thanking me for giving him a chance. Tommy and my 2 cats are slowly getting used to each other, and have already made excellent progress in less than 48 hours. Tommy is eager to please, very potty trained, loves to run in the yard, and play fetch, and is just the best boy! Thank you NHS!
We got our sweet cuddlebug Thursday, February 27, 2014

Our little cuddle bug
We have fallen in love with her
On February 18th we went to the Humane Society looking for a sweet puppy to become a part of our home. We found Lucy, an energetic young girlie. She wasted no time making herself at home, falling asleep on the couch within a half hour of coming home! We have fallen in love with her! And she seems to like us to, since she always has to be cuddling with us when not playing.
Who rescued Who? Thursday, February 27, 2014

Pooka is my blessing in disguise
I had just graduated high school and was wasting time with my mom when we decided to stroll through and look at the dogs. I turned the corner, and there was a 15 pound black and white puppy just staring at me. I couldn't keep my eyes off of him, he was so cute and only wanted to play with me, even though other people were walking by and attempting to get his attention. I knew right then that this puppy was going home with me.
His tag said he was an Akita Mix, and 3 months old. I remember thinking he's good size for a 3 month old pup, little did I know that he would grow to be the biggest 140lb baby I had ever known! Like his small size, Junior didn't stick for long, and he was named Pooka. I left for college a few months after he was adopted, but whenever I came home he was so excited to see me. Eventually he moved with me, and he loved campus life. There were many ups and downs during those years, and Pooka was always by my side, even when a class project of raising infant squirrels kept he and I up late for midnight feedings.
Pooka is my blessing in disguise, he's been there for tears and laughter, and I don't know what I would have done if not for that fateful day of wandering through the Nebraska Humane Society.
We Love Lucy! Thursday, February 13, 2014

They have become fast friends
We brought Lucy, formally known as Queen, home from the Nebraska Humane Society on January 17th. She has quickly adapted to her new name and her new home.
Our Cavalier King Charles, Griffin, had been in need of a friend for quite some time. As soon as we saw Lucy up for adoption, we knew she needed to come home with us. As you can see, they have become fast friends.
We took the advice of the staff and introduced the dogs on a walk, away from our home. They had only been walking together a few minutes when Lucy decided she was tired. My husband waited for Lucy to rest and I decided to head home with Griffin. Well, Griffin wouldn't leave his new friend behind. He waited patiently for her to rest so they could head for home...together. They've been together ever since.
Thank you so very much to the staff and volunteers at the Nebraska Humane Society for rescuing her, and for taking such wonderful care of her until we could bring her home.

Take a look at my family and how happy I am
Hi Nebraska Humane Society,
Remember me? Maybe not, but my name is Chloe and I went to my forever home 2 years ago at the age of 4. What a great 2 years it's been with my mom. She helped me gain back my weight, taught me how to swim, introduced me to my two sisters and I even became an adrenaline junkie like her.
I'm a little party animal! I love to be around mom's friends and family and give them lots of kisses! I go boating with my mom every chance I get...and by that I mean they don't get to go without me. I became a four wheeling lover. Mom takes me with her on her trips in the river so I can get nice and stinky and full of mud with the wind in my face! Again, she doesn't get to go without me.
I'm the house protector even though my sister is bigger...nothing gets by me. I love to cuddle with my mom and grandma on the couch that I used to not be allowed on and I love to drag out all my toys all over the house. Somehow they still love me. I can't thank you enough for rescuing me and allowing me to rescue my mom. Take a look at my family and how happy I am.
A Happy Family Wednesday, February 12, 2014

I am very thankful for my fur babies
In November I adopted an amazing Chi puppy from the Humane Society. He was 9 weeks old, and stole my heart. He became my best friend, and only wanted the best for him. I started to notice that he was becoming sluggish, and didn't want to play as much. So I decided he needed a little brother or sister to perk him up. When we got to the society things were not looking good. Watson would bark and growl at almost every dog he met. So we went home, without a sibling. A couple weeks later I saw a new litter of puppies had arrived at the society, so once again Watson and I made a trip out to see the dogs. Although I can't say it was love at first site, Abby was the first dog Watson didn't try to attack. We let them sniff and get used to each other for a little while. There were a few moments when I thought of just saying no, and leaving again. But then Watson started to play with Abby, and it was such a happy moment. I knew right then and there that this could work. So I adopted Abby and we all went home. The first night was rough, but we got past it. Now here we are, 3 weeks later and Watson and Abby are best friends. Where one goes, the other follows. They sleep together, eat together, and of course play together. Watson has never seemed happier, and Abby is fitting in very nicely. Who would have thought a Boxer and A Chi would become best friends? I am very thankful for my fur babies, and I am thankful to the Humane Society for allowing me the chance to save them.
