York Adopt-A-Pet is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal sanctuary located in York Nebraska
If these don’t work, the shelter is an option but it should be your last resort. While the Nebraska Humane Society is one of the best shelters in the country it is still a shelter. Pets who have been spoiled by family members find themselves in kennels, with strange people and animals surrounding them. Many are so scared they shut down. Others act aggressive. For some, the situation is so stressful that they become physically sick. We accept any animals from our jurisdiction into the shelter, and promise safe harbor and humane treatment as the pet’s temperament and health is evaluated for our adoption program but some animals don’t make because they simply don’t do well in the kennel environment.
So you want to add a family member? There is no better way than to adopt a shelter pet and give him or her a second chance. The Nebraska Humane Society is an open-entry shelter welcoming dogs, cats, small critters, horses and even barnyard buddies on a daily basis. While a majority of animals are housed at the main campus, some are too sensitive to be in our general adopt kennels, some are convalescing in foster homes and our horses are off-site at the Star Equine Rehabilitation Facility. You can browse available animals on our website or visit most of them in person at our campus at 90th and Fort streets.
