Simply Harley Thursday, May 1, 2014
By: Laura Neidhardt
Harley has turned into one of the sweetest cats you could hope for, and we love her so much.
I adopted Harley (she was named Chanel at that time) in August 2012. She was scared to death, and wouldn't let go of the blanket the Humane Society had put in the box with her. For several weeks Harley stayed in her box, even though she was free to run through the whole house. After almost a month, she ventured on my lap for the first time. I sat almost absolutely still so I wouldn't scare her.
Cut to two years later....
Harley owns this place. Hands down. She is now an incredibly social cat so waits by the door for me and my boyfriend to get home. I've taught her how to "hug," and she has so many toys that it's shameful. She also still has her blanket, which is on top of her kitty perch. Harley has turned into one of the sweetest cats you could hope for, and we love her so much.

She's a good girl.
She is full of energy. Does many tricks and likes to snuggle. I've never seen a dog run so fast.
Sven the German Shepard :) Tuesday, April 29, 2014
By: Payton Snipes
Our first addition to our new family!
My fiancé and I adopted Sven (previously named Cadbury) from the NHS just a few weeks ago. He was a stray before taken to the humane society. He seemed very sad, didn't want to play or take treats, and was just looking for someone to love him. He didn't know how to sit, and you could tell had not been previously trained. I am SO happy to say even after these few short weeks, Sven can now sit, and lay on command, and has had no accidents! He is very playful, and loves to play fetch with his favorite stuffed ducky, but sometimes is ornery and steals his daddy's socks :) He thinks he's a lap dog and will make himself comfortable right on top of you. So blessed and thankful we were able to rescue him!
Our Gracie Thursday, April 24, 2014
By: Danielle Hanslip
Gracie is the PERFECT addition to our family!
When we first saw Gracie, she wouldn't come to the front of her kennel, but it turned out she was just waiting to go outside. My mom thought that she was antisocial and thankfully our grandma thought that we should see her anyway. When they brought her into the visitation room she was happy, full of energy, and loved us almost instantly. When we brought her home she was well trained, good with the whole family, and very protective (which my dad liked). Now Gracie spends most of her time attacking on my mom's shoes when she walks by, destroying her toys, and being our little 80 pound lap dog. She is a wonderful addition to our family. We would like to thank you for allowing us the chance to make Gracie a part of our family.
The Biz with Gizmo Tuesday, April 22, 2014
By: Elizabeth Franks
Adjusting at the speed of light
We adopted Paul, a 2-year old chihuahua, on April 19th of 2014 and renamed him Gizmo. He's adjusting beautifully to our house and family members. Our 2-year old cat, Smoke, is already starting to play with him. It is quite the treat to watch them chase each other through the house...no hissing...no barking...just chasing. Smoke even deigns to wash Gizmo's feet for him. All this in 2 days. They share a water bowl but have separate feeding areas.
Turtle Love Saturday, April 19, 2014
By: Micole Harms-Brazell
We are so glad to have Outlook as our little girl.
My husband insisted that Dial-up was lonely and needed a friend. I watched the NHS website for weeks, and finally a picture of a box turtle was posted. We immediately jumped in the car and headed over. Outlook was immediately accepted by Dial-up. They are hilarious to watch - they have such unique personalities and are like any couple. Sometimes they are "arguing" and won't acknowledge each other. Other days they snuggle and follow each other around (who knew turtles snuggle?!). Outlook is true to her name and loves to sit and look. She loves worms and will fight Dial-up to get them. We are so glad to have Outlook as our little girl. It turns out Dial-up did need a friend. Having Outlook has helped bring Dial-up out of his shell - he is much more outgoing and comfortable with us since Outlook became part of the family.
Finn is settled in Friday, April 18, 2014

From the first night he found his spot to snuggle into on the bed I could tell he had found his forever home
We had been stalking the NHS site for months looking for the perfect addition to our family. I'd come in a couple of times but just didn't feel that attachment to anyone so I always left dog-less.
I first noticed 'Ryder' on the NHS website on a Monday night. I came in early the next day to meet him. As I was waiting for adoption time to start they had to break the news to me that he was on hold until 4 pm that evening. I was very disappointed because there was just something about that dog that was reaching out to me. I went home and figured the search continues. Later that night I noticed he was still showing up on the site and thought if he's still there in the morning I'm going in again, sure enough he was so off to the humane society I went.
We adopted Finnley (formerly known as Ryder) a little over 2 weeks ago from NHS. We were prepared to have a bit of a challenge while he got use to his new home but were pleasantly surprised from the minute he came through the door. It was reported that Finn had some fear issues so we were told it may take some time for him to adjust. He came in the door and made himself right at home. Also to my surprise he introduced himself to our resident dogs right away. Our Lab loved him instantly and our rat terrier basically hated his very existence. She has since come around and has decided he can stay.
Our girls were accustomed to sleeping in the sun the majority of the day. Finn loves to play so he's defiantly shaken up the routine around here. He's potty trained, goes right into his kennel and listens better than the other two. He barks a bit when people come to meet him but warms up after just a few minutes. He's settled in and seems like he's always been here.
From the first night he found his spot to snuggle into on the bed I could tell he had found his forever home. I know he was meant to be here and I'm thankful for the Nebraska Humane Society for taking such good care of him while he waited for us.
Zoey Our Princess Friday, April 18, 2014
By: Micaela Vaughn
We couldn't be happier to have a new furbaby to love on and spoil rotten.
We have wanted to add an animal to our little family for some time now. When we saw 'Zelda' we knew we had found the perfect addition. We renamed her Zoey and brought her and about a thousand toys home with us. Though she is still adjusting to us and her new home, we couldn't be happier to have a new furbaby to love on and spoil rotten. We can't thank the humane society enough for helping bring Zoey into our lives. :)
Stella Monday, April 14, 2014

It was love at first sight with Stella!
Stella and I met at the Nebraska Humane Society on March 21, 2014. She was a bit shy in her cage with her back turned to everyone and when I called her name she turned her head and gave me "the stink eye". I knew then she was the one for me! I had lost my dog of 15 years 3 weeks earlier and she was the queen at giving "the stink eye". It was love at first sight with Stella! I brought her home and she has bonded well with me and is adjusting to meeting new people who visit my home. She has been a wonderful dog, well behaved and house trained. I couldn't have ordered a better dog!! Thank you Nebraska Humane Society for filling an empty place in my heart and in my home.
