Dishwasher Drive

Our dishwasher gave out and we're hoping to replace it with a longer-lasting, industrial model.

Who doesn't hate doing the dishes?

But hundreds of dishes have to be sanitized every day at the Nebraska Humane Society to help control the spread of germs and diseases. Our wee babies are most vulnerable as their immune systems aren't fully developed. Unfortunately, the nursery dishwasher at NHS gave out sooner than expected due to constant use. We're hoping to replace the dishwasher with a longer-lasting, industrial model that can sanitize dishes in just 15 minutes!

This isn't in our budget, but it isn't a luxury.

A "regular" dishwasher takes about two hours to sanitize a load, so simply replacing this one will have the same result. It will run constantly, and, again, wear out quickly. The new washer is faster, more durable and made for lots of loads!

We know that routine costs can seem a bit boring, but we want the best for our tiniest residents, and we know you do, too. Know that your donation will help keep them healthy and robust while in our care!

Our community is the absolute best! Combined with donations through our website, we have reached our goal for the new dishwasher! Thank you all so much for your generosity and for sharing this post. None of this is possible without your support. Any further donations will go directly to animals with medical needs.
