My story

Leo is a friendly and handsome, 6-year-old German Shepherd. He weighs 56 lbs.  He needs a new person or family who can make sure he never misses a dose of his seizure meds. Phenobarbital controls them, but his humans want a home for him with a more predictable schedule. We agree that a new home is what he needs. Leo is good with other dogs (unsure about cats)  and would prefer a low traffic home, but mainly, he just needs his medication every 12 hours. Do you have a consistent schedule? Can you foster him until we find the perfect situation? Maybe you are the one meant for him. Leo is friendly and loves his people, but he suffers every time he misses a dose. Applications can be found on our website… www.NebraskaNoKill.org

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All prospective adopters contact the group via our website and are required to fill out an adoption form. Volunteers check references and do a home visit. A "meet and greet" is arranged if other family members or pets are involved. Adoption fees are generally $250.00 for dogs 6 months to 7 years; $150.00 for dogs over 7 years. If a puppy is adopted, the adoption fee is $450.00, but $200 of that is refunded once we have documentation that the animal has been altered. All adult dogs are altered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and tested for heartworm. If the adoption does not work out, NNCKR requires that the dog be returned to us.

Go meet their pets

We take advantage of local events sponsored by businesses such as PetSmart, PetCo, Subaru, Verizon and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local fund raisers put on by rescue groups. We are also happy to arrange meet and greets with people who would like to see a dog they saw on our website or at an adoption event.

More about this rescue

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes. To accomplish this, we do three things: Rescue dogs Rehabilitate dogs Re-home dogs NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.
