Private Pet Cremation

Every pet is unforgettable and unique. With that in mind, we offer private cremation services for your beloved family members.

Rainbow Bridge Private Pet Cremation

Legend has it that when a beloved pet dies he goes to a place of beauty Over the Rainbow Bridge. We understand how unforgettable and unique each pet is. With that in mind, the Nebraska Humane Society offers Rainbow Bridge private pet cremations. We treat your pets with the utmost respect because that’s the way we want our pets treated. Rainbow Bridge proceeds stay right here at the shelter, so as you take care of your pet you are also taking care of homeless animals who need medical treatments, TLC and safe haven. We can think of no better tribute for a beloved companion!

Pet loss support group

Due to COVID-19 the pet loss support group has been temporarily suspended.

Losing a pet can be painful and disruptive to your life, so the Nebraska Humane Society is here to help. We offer a FREE pet loss support group on the first Saturday of every month at 10:30 a.m. This informal discussion group is led by a volunteer grief specialist with experience in counseling and a deep love of pets. Feel free to stop by once or attend monthly. Reservations are not required. Come to share or simply listen. Whatever you choose, we’re here to help with your healing. The support group is open to the public. View the details on our calendar page »
