News and Publications

Keeping you informed and engaged is vital to spread the word about the lifesaving work the Nebraska Humane Society does every day. From electronic and printed newsletters to press releases and shelter stories, we want you to have information about the animals we work with, new programs we undertake and how we allocate the resources you donate. 

2020 Shelter Highlights

2020 certainly wasn't the easiest year any of us have encountered, but that doesn't mean there weren't plenty of highlights at the Nebraska Humane Society. Over 9,000 animals were either adopted or returned to their owners, and that's just the beginning. Check out all the shelter highlights for the year here.
