Found a new home and a big brother! Monday, May 13, 2013

Philip (on the left).
Hi, My name is Philip (on the left). I started out as a stray cat. I was adopted on Sat., March 2nd. My new parents were thinking about changing my name when they got me. As they were putting me in the car to take me to my forever home, Phillip Phillips song, "Home" was playing on the radio. They immediately decided that that was a sign to keep my name. My parents are calling me Phil for short. I am loving my new family! I have gained a new furry older brother, named Pumpkin. We have become best friends! My new family has welcomed me with open arms and paws. ;)
Morgana Monday, May 13, 2013
By: Angel Fridholm
I adopted a stray dog you named Felicia, I renamed her Lady, now her name is Morgana for good.
Morgana is very good with cats, dogs, people, house trained, crate trained, knows many tricks, polite, sweet. The only thing wrong with her was that she wasn't a match for me. My name is Angel and I tried so hard to bond with her, but she seemed so intent on bonding with Amber my son's girlfriend. She actually has abandonment issues if Amber leaves the room without her and Amber adores her to no end. They are a cute pair and my son, Aaron loves her too. They are taking her home with them to their new home in Bellevue and will be registering her when they get there in a couple weeks. Morgana is adjusting, eating well, walking, happy, cuddles, knows she's a lap dog, and full of love and life. Our family would be lost without her. Thank you everyone at the NE Humane Society!
Berkshire Bogie Sunday, May 12, 2013
By: John Ritland
Every year at the Berkshire Hathaway meeting, the good folks at World Book generously share their booth space with NHS...
...Dogwalker volunteers take a few dogs to the meeting in hopes someone might come along and meet their forever friend. My daughter Mia helped me again this year, and we took Bogie, a 12-year old Shih Tzu. It wasn't long before Mia asked if WE could adopt Bogie. The request took me by surprise, but I couldn't think of a good reason to say no -- because I didn't have one. Bogie came home with us that afternoon and joined our family. He fits right in and is perky and happy. He gets along great with our 6-year old Wheaten Terrier, even if his nightly romantic overtures to her are ignored. So, thank you World Book and NHS. And a special thank you to Serena for choosing Bogie for us!
"We wanted a dog, what we got was a companion, who is the guardian of our family" Saturday, May 11, 2013
By: Katie Peterson
My parents, brother and I adopted Tyson from the Nebraska Humane Society about a year ago and I have to say that it was the best decision we could have made.
Tyson isn't just some dog, he's part of the family. As well as being able to lay anywhere he wants (that includes right in the middle of the floor, in our way), and will personally give us a look that says "Can I help you?" if we need to get by. He is LOVED so much!!! And while he would rather lay on the floor in the living room with the family, he also has a huge fenced in back yard, that's ALL his, and his alone (just ask the neighborhood dogs) Tyson is gentle, affectionate, caring, and a watchful protector, who makes sure the baby in the family is safe, and out of harms way. But while he is laid back, he does have some rules: Rule # 1- If you have food, you will give me a bite, I don't care how long I have to beg (and with my cute face, it shouldn't take too long). Rule # 2- If its daytime, I will be in the house, watching everything that goes on. Rule # 3- If someone enters the house, I must sniff them to make sure they are safe, its for your own good. Rule # 4- I don't mind cats, but never give them more attention then me. Rule # 5 Baths are a No No, if you want to get me clean, prepare yourself! Rule # 6- No leaving the house, without petting me, if you fail, I will be sad and pout (which I know we both don't want). Rule # 7- No one is allowed to come near my fence! If they want to meet me, they can come to the door, and introduce themselves properly.Rule # 8- It is my duty to protect my family, and that includes making sure everyone stays in line during an argument. Rule # 9- If a baby wants to say hello, that's more than fine, just as long as I can kiss them once or twice. And finally Rule # 10- Every time you enter the house, you must stand still until I have completely sniffed you, and everything you are carrying...cause I need to make sure you are alright (as well as see if you brought me any goodies). To sum it all up, Tyson is a wonderful dog, that knows what he wants. We love him so much, and can't wait to see what he has in store for the future. Oh, and thank you to the Nebraska Humane Society for helping us, and for taking care of him, while he was there. I was very pleased with the service, and wish I could volunteer there, but now we are in SC (Tyson loved the trip -So Many Smells-). Keep up the good work!!! P.S- To the previous owners of Tyson, I hope you are doing well, and I hope you find happiness in knowing that he is safe :)
Cato Potato Tuesday, May 7, 2013
By: Rachael Niles
I adopted Cato in November and I can't imagine life without him now. He is so smart! He rings the bell when he has to go outside, he can crawl, sit, lay and he has great table manners. He has so much energy and loves to play with other dogs and his toys. He's a great cuddler and loves to sun bathe.
Our New Boy Friday, May 3, 2013
By: Karen Barajas
We adopted Bowie a week ago. We made a slight change to his name, as the original name was Bozo and we thought that was kind of a mean name for a dog. He has fit in perfectly with our family! We also have a Jack Russell Terrier mix, Mickey, and the two boys have made fast friends. Mickey and Bowie sleep next to each other and both want to lay next to us on the couch. Bowie was heart worm positive, but had been treated by NHS. Our vet said that he is doing well and to bring him back in a few months for another test. I'm confident that he will be just fine! Thank your for blessing us with our new family member! I'm attaching a photo of him sleeping on the couch.
Bring Piper Home Monday, April 29, 2013
By: Andrea Johnson
You just never know when you bring in a new dog to your home. How will the dog react. How will you family react. But sometimes with a dog you just know.
We had been watching for a beagle as we currently have 2. The staff at the Ne Humane Society were so very helpful in helping us through this process. We were advised of Piper a 1 year female beagle coming up for adoption. We went there hoping all would work out. We got to visit with the staff who said they weren't sure how she would do with other dogs. They were sure how she would do with kids. When they brought her in she was so happy and playful. We took her right away. She has been so good with our other dogs. They run and play all the time. She has been good with our grandkids. We are so happy that we adopted Piper. She is a great addition to our happy family.
Hootch's New Home! Sunday, April 28, 2013
By: Keith Glenn
Hootch is happy in his new home!
We have spent a busy afternoon welcoming Hootch to his new home. He has enjoyed playing with his new lab mix sister, Suzi, and she has taught him the ropes, and showed him how much fun it is to run around the pool. He has made his rounds to everyone's lap, kids and adults included. We will keep everyone at the Humane Society up-to-date on his progress, since we know he has touched so many lives there. We feel very blessed to have him as part of our family. Thank you!
Love at first sight Friday, April 26, 2013

My husband and I are so happy to welcome Izzy, the sweetest and most gentle kitty, as the newest member of our family! We couldn't be luckier!
Less than a week ago, my husband and I came into the Nebraska Humane Society with the intention of "just looking". An hour later, we left with Izzy, a sweet and gentle Siamese mix who stole our hearts right from the start. Izzy is a perfect addition to our family and we can't wait for all the wonderful memories and happiness she will continue to bring to our lives.
Great job, NEHS! We had a wonderful experience while at the facility: all the NEHS associates we met were so welcoming and warm, and the materials you provided have been invaluable to making sure we are fully-prepared for the steps that accompany the adoption of our wonderful kitty!
A bundle of Joy Thursday, April 25, 2013

A bundle of Joy
We adopted Buttercup from the shelter and she has been a joy ever since we brought her home. She was a little shy at first, but it didn't take her long to warm up to her new home and family. She loves running in the backyard with the kids, and always has a happy tail everytime you greet her. A big thank you to the shelter staff for helping us find the right dog to fit with our family.
