The Nebraska Humane Society has been providing animal control services to the City of Omaha since 1875. Currently, NHS is contracted by the City of Omaha and the municipalities of Sarpy County to provide animal control services. While our name is "Nebraska Humane Society" and we will help other agencies outside these areas, if requested, our jurisdiction is the metro area. Officers patrol the streets from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Officers are also on call overnight for emergencies. While our officers are constantly looking out for the welfare of animals, their number one priority is public safety. So reports of dangerous animals, dog bites, or animals in immediate distress take precedence over barking dogs and deceased animal pick-up. Still, every call is important. We rely on community members to alert us to stray, mistreated or unhealthy animals.
