About Our Shelter
Established in 1967 and celebrating over 50 years of service, the Central Nebraska Humane Society is still located at the original site donated by Herbert and Barbara Glover. CNHS is the largest nonprofit 501(c) (3) animal welfare organization in a lead role in central Nebraska. CNHS is governed by a Board of Directors whose members establish the policies, operation guidelines, strategic planning and fundraising for the organization.
All donations and financial support goes directly to impacting the lives of animals in a positive way. Much of the funding CNHS needs to care for animals comes from the generous support of local donations. Funding from the relationship with local city government only covers the work of Animal Control. Currently, the CNHS staff is developing new programs including comprehensive animal foster care and dog training programs as well as revamping its volunteer program. Development of these new programs would not occur without the generous financial support of area donors. To date, CNHS has adopted to over 70 counties in Nebraska and over 30 states.
What We Do
The purpose of the Central Nebraska Humane Society is to promote the adoption of rescued, abandoned, abused or neglected animals into safe, lifelong homes.
