Sputnik is in orbit. Monday, March 31, 2014
By: Cindy Kuthan
She has enriched our lives.
My family and I had gone to the Humane Society over a year ago, intending to get a cat or an older dog. While we were there, there was a group of 11 week old Boxer-mix puppies. We got to meet the last one and fell in love with her. Over the past year, Sputnik has grown up to be a happy, spoiled doggy. She loves to play (a lot,) go for walks, look out the window, and chase small creatures. Her absolute favorite thing to do is to go play with other dogs at the Yappytime Play and Stay Group. Playing with other dogs is the best thing since peanut butter to her. She is such a happy, carefree dog that her happiness is infectious to the rest of us. We couldn't ask for a better dog that brings such joy to our house.
Grace - My Little Diva Thursday, March 27, 2014
By: Katie Gregory
I'll be a life long friend with my little Gracie!
I adopted my sassy cat named Grace (formerly Tulip) from the Nebraska Humane Society via Petsmart about 3 years ago when she was just a tiny kitten. I remember seeing her tiny little 11 week old face peeking through the bars of her kennel and I fell in love instantly! Since then she has grown into a beautiful and very spoiled diva cat. She has become pals with the family dog, who is a 5 year old cocker spaniel named Sadie. They romp around and play tag all the time! I enjoyed my adoption experience so much that I have become a volunteer adoption counselor at NHS and get to relive the joy and excitement that comes with getting a new pet/best friend with every adopter! It makes my heart proud to help such a wonderful organization every week! Thank you for all you do NHS! I'll be a life long friend with my little Gracie!

We are so happy to have her and lover her so much.
We adopted Molly (known before as Winnie) a little over a month ago and could not be happier. She has adjusted so well and is extremely smart. She already knows how to sit and play fetch! We are so happy to have her and lover her so much.
Bella Tuesday, March 25, 2014
By: Allison McDermott
After 3 previous owners, she found a forever home!
When we lost our family pet of 16 years, deciding to adopt a new dog was very difficult. We waited almost a year before stopping by the humane society and meeting Bella.
Her previous owners didn't give much information about her, except that she had 2 owners before them, but it was clear that she was terrified of human interaction. She would bolt out of the room when we would enter, refused to eat her food, and tried to run away on a few occasions.
After a few weeks, she calmed down and started to let us in. Now, almost a year later, she is everyone's best friend. Such a sweet girl!
We're so thankful to have Bella in our home!
Calliope Monday, March 24, 2014
By: Allison Batenhorst
She constantly makes us laugh!!
My husband and I were looking for a nice companion to join our family. We started looking online at the available cats and we knew right away that adoption was the best option for us. One of the cats that stood out online was Calliope so the next day we went down to the humane society to see if she was still there. We spent some time playing with her and we fell in love with her almost instantly. She was a little scared when we got her home but that's expected. But after just a few hours she was happily eating and playing around. She loves to sit in our bay window to watch the people walk by and she enjoys playing with feathers! She's kinda ornery and we absolutely love that about her- she constantly makes us laugh!!
If you are considering getting an animal to join your family- I highly recommend checking out the humane society! There are many lost pets that need a loving home and you could help save their life. The staff there was extremely helpful with answering ALL of our questions and also helping us find our Calliope!

German Shorthair Pointer Number Two Friday, March 21, 2014
By: Kevin Lindsey
Darwin has been a great addition to our family and we are grateful to the Humane Society for helping us adopt him.
We brought Darwin (was Duke) home one week ago today. He fit right in with our other two dogs Lilly (far left) and Mable (middle). After only seven short days this group is inseparable. Lilly, our other German Shorthair Pointer, acts like she has found a long lost relative! Darwin is a very quick learner and has gone from pulling everyone around on his leash to walking on our right calmly with a loose leash. He is a great jogger and joins us nightly on our runs, but mostly he just loves sitting next to the couch with a bone and getting pet while we watch T.V. Darwin has been a great addition to our family and we are grateful to the Humane Society for helping us adopt him.
Bailey fits in perfectly Friday, March 14, 2014
By: Robert Finkenbiner
He's happy, and the family is happy.
We picked up Bailey after an extended search for a rescue animal. We needed a "big dog" that could co-exist with out two male Shih Tzu brothers. We worked with Denise to help us find a fit, and had to pass on several of the fine animals we visited. I was worried that maybe their wasn't an animal for us when we made an appointment to see several animals. The chemistry had to be good between myself and the dog, and he had to be able to fit into our existing family. Bailey ended up being a perfect fit. Now we have a new member, he is walking me morning and nights, and i'm losing weight because of the exercise. He's happy, the family is happy, and our two dogs are adjusting well to the big dog experience. My wife said that this is a great dog, and she's pleased I went and got him.
Snuggles the diva! Thursday, March 13, 2014
By: Michaela Cooney
She has brought many laughs in my life
It was 1 year ago today that I adopted Snuggles. As soon as I saw her in her kennel I knew I had to have her. She has brought many laughs in my life; especially when it comes down to her and her chiapom brother playing. Snuggles is such a diva, but its ok she will be forever spoiled. To celebrate she got a dog cake and a trip to the dog park.
Zoey :) Wednesday, March 12, 2014
By: Stephanie Goolsby
After adopting Zoey in 2012 she is the best part of my day and always knows how to put a smile on my face
When I first went to the Humane Society I never though I would come home with a small dog. But, after seeing Zoey I know she was the one. Zoey just turned two in January and is the best part of my day. When I first got her she was very skinny and that is definitely not the case now. Zoey enjoys her treats, watching out the window, chasing bunnies, hiding her toys in the couch, and sleeping on her blanket. I would not trade her for the world and I cant thank the wonderful people at the Humane Society for bringing her into my life. :)
