Did you know?

The very first Walk for the Animals took place in 1989, with 50 people and their pets.  Last year, even during a pandemic, nearly 400 of you registered and raised funds to help animals in need. 

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.  

Please join us this year, so together,  we can save the lives of more animals.





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 20,000 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.
