Snakes for Free adoption

So you want to add a family member? There is no better way than to adopt a shelter pet and give him or her a second chance. The Nebraska Humane Society is an open-entry shelter welcoming dogs, cats, small critters, horses and even barnyard buddies on a daily basis. While a majority of animals are housed at the main campus, some are too sensitive to be in our general adopt kennels, some are convalescing in foster homes and our horses are off-site at the Star Equine Rehabilitation Facility. You can browse available animals on our website or visit most of them in person at our campus at 90th and Fort streets.

All dogs have the following services:

  • Parvo/Distemper/Kennel Cough vaccinations on intake
  • Puppies get appropriate boosters
  • Heartworm test for dogs 6 months and older
  • Flea and tick preventative
  • Spay/neuter
  • Microchip

All cats have the following services:

  • FVRCP Vaccinations on intake
  • Kittens get appropriate boosters
  • Feline Leukemia Test for adult cats
  • Rabies Vaccination for cats 6 months and older

We also work to make the animals as comfortable as possible by bathing and grooming and offering needed medical treatments.

Please note that not all health issues are readily apparent. We appreciate your understanding that you are partnering with us to help fully rehabilitate and offer these deserving animals a second chance.

General adoptions:

  1. Come to the shelter to check out the animals. You’ll want to meet a pet in person before taking him or her home.
  2. Because Nebraska’s legal age to sign a contract is 19, we ask that all adopters are at least 19 years old.
  3. Please bring a valid form of identification.
  4. Once you see an animal you’d like to meet, fill out an adoption survey and hand it in at customer service. The forms are located on the inside front wall of the lobby.
  5. You’ll get a pager that vibrates when an adoption counselor is ready to get you together with your possible new pet. All adopters see animals on a first-come, first-served basis.
  6. The counselor will give you any information we have about the animal, including any medical records, previous owner information and reports from dog walkers and cat companions regarding the pet’s personality.
  7. This is a big decision—so allow yourself some time to meet and get to know your potential new pet.
  8. If you fall in love, you can leave with the pet the same day!
  9. Adoption hours are noon to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. We respectfully ask that you submit your adoption survey one-half hour before we close.
