A listing of all animal rescues and shelters throughout the State of Nebraska. Our collective organizations adopt everything from dogs and cats, to birds, horses, ferrets, snakes and amphibians. See our website for all of the groups in your area that have been licensed by the Nebraska Department of Ag for the current year.
We are a coalition of Nebraska's animal rescues, shelters and advocacy groups working together to increase the number of animals adopted throughout the State of Nebraska.
Our Adoption Process:
Every group has varying requirements based on the type of animal or breed. Please see their individiual websites for more information about fees or other requirements.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
