Including the Nebraska Humane Society in your estate plans will save lives long after you’re gone. Your commitment will help prop up animals who have been abandoned, abused and neglected in our community. Remembering NHS in your plans will allow us to help the thousands of animals who come through our doors each year.
The Paws Forever Legacy Society is our way of recognizing and thanking people whose acknowledged planned gifts help ensure the healthy financial future of NHS and the animals served by our mission. Not only will you have the satisfaction of caring for the homeless animals, but by becoming a member of the Paws Forever Legacy Society, NHS will help care for your animals should you become unable to care for them through our Paws for Life Continuing Care Program.
