How does the Walk work?


Form a Dog Pack or a Cat Colony by rallying your friends, family and co-workers to join the fun!

Raise Money! 

You can earn great incentives and best of all, save the lives of animals in need. There’s no fee to participate, but the more you raise, the more great incentives you will earn and the more lives you will save. Check out our Fundraising Guide to help you!

Walk or Run! 

Grab a leash and hit the trail with your dog, cat, critter, horse…you get the point.

Snap a Pic!

Don't forget to share it!  #NHSWalk

Did you know?

The very first Walk for the Animals took place in 1989, with 50 people and their pets.  Last year, even during Covid we had nearly 400 registered participants. We would like to extend a huge round of a-paws to everyone who has Walked over the years to save homeless animals and give them the second chance they deserve.

Why Participate?

The Nebraska Humane Society protects, saves and enriches the lives of animals in the communities we serve.  By participating in the Walk for the Animals you are saving the lives of more than 24,000 animals who come through our doors each year in need of shelter, care and healing before finding their forever home.  Your support makes a difference.
