Welcome to the Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska

The Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska* started as a foster-only program in the mid 90's. Originally based in the Wayne area, we have since been taking in and rehoming animals in the northeast Nebraska area as well as the rest of Nebraska and all throughout the United States!! With the need for helping homeless pets increasing every year, the decision was made that the organization needed a building to house all of the animals needing help. With the generous financial support of our community, we were finally able to open the doors to our facility in March of 2016! Since then, we have taken in and found permanent homes for almost 2500 cats, dogs and critters! We currently have the capacity to hold about 35 cats and about 35 dogs at any given time.

Our mission is to create a community of resources and solutions through committed care of animals, education of pet ownership, and providing a home for the homeless. 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.
