The best way to adopt the right dog or cat.

Meet Your Match(tm) Every time you adopt a pet from the Nebraska Humane Society, you enable us to save the life of another orphaned animal in great need, and finding a great companion has never been easier!

By completing this fun Adopter Survey we will gather information about your expectations for your new Cat or Dog which will help us determine which animals might best suit your lifestyle, wants and needs.  When you are finished, you can choose to receive an e-mail invitation to visit the Nebraska Humane Society that includes color-coded survey results that will guide you to the Dog or Cat that is your best match.

Please note that the survey has no wrong answers, so please answer it as honestly and completely as possible.  This will help our adoption staff unite you with a new pet that is the best fit.

The Nebraska Humane Society was founded in 1875 and is the fifth oldest Humane Society in the United States! The organization was originally established for the protection of both animals and children. In the mid 1940's, state agencies began to embrace child welfare issues, leaving the Nebraska Humane Society as the sole organization within the Omaha area designated for the protection of animals. We provide education, give sanctuary to animals, encourage adoptions and promote responsible pet ownership. By providing animal control services to much of the metro area we also serve the citizens of our community by upholding laws enacted for the protection of people and animals.

The Nebraska Humane Society acts as a municipal shelter for more than a half dozen communities. We are not a "no-kill" shelter, we are a no-suffering shelter because we accept and provide sanctuary to any animal that comes through our doors. We believe that every animal, even those too sick, too abused or too aggressive to be adopted deserve to be treated fairly. So we don't pick and choose who to let in. When owners cast them aside, we offer these refugees a warm blanket, food, clean kennels and medical care. We assess all animals for health and temperament, and those we can't nurse back to health physically or mentally, we peacefully and respectfully euthanize.
