Welcome to the Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska
The Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska* started in the mid 90's in the Wayne area and has since been taking in and rehoming animals in the Norfolk area as well as the rest of Nebraska and all throughout the United States!!
We strive to provide humane care for abandoned, neglected or abused pets for adoption purposes and to educate the public about the proper care of animals.
We are completely funded by donations and we were finally able to open the doors to our new shelter in March of 2016 and since then we have taken in over 1200 cats and dogs! We have the capacity to currently hold about 35 cats and about 35 dogs at any given time.
On average, we adopt 34 animals out per month and we are working hard to bring that number up! We currently have to turn away 2 - 3 families a day that are looking to find a new home for their pet simply for the fact that we either do not have room, or do not have the finances to bring another animal into our facility until others are adopted.
Our number one goal is to continue to grow as an organization, develop a strong network of volunteers, donors and fosters and educate the public about the care of household pets.
*Formerly known as the Northeast Nebraska Humane Society. In respect to the agriculture community we changed our name to reflect we are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States.
