Tours and Presentations

NHS offers behind-the-scenes tours for civic groups, organizations and clubs, plus tours and presentations to enhance classroom lessons.

Tours and Presentations

Group Tours

Civic groups, organizations or clubs can see how we care for and house the thousands of animals that come into our shelter. We’ll take you behind the scenes and show you the process an animal goes through as it makes its way from the stray kennels to a new home. Go behind the scenes to the surgical suite, tag along as we feed animals, and learn why we work so hard to get the animals out to good homes. To schedule a group tour, please call 402-444-7800, ext. 2214.  

School Tours

To enhance the classroom lessons, the Nebraska Humane Society offers classes participating in our Humane Education Program behind the scenes tours of the Lied Humane Center. From the kennels to the operating room, get an up-close look at how the shelter operates and experience the compassion we offer all animals in our care! To schedule a school tour, please call 402-444-7800, ext. 2214.
