The Nebraska Humane Society is unique among animal shelters.  Not only do we shelter homeless animals, we provide animal control services to several cities in the metropolitan area.  Omaha, Bellevue, Gretna, Papillion, La Vista, Ralston, Springfield and unincorporated Sarpy County all contract with us to enforce city ordinances as they relate to animals.  Our Animal Control Officers provide public safety services including cruelty/neglect investigations, animal rescue, rabies control and dangerous animal containment.

As a law abiding pet owner, a host of responsibilities come to rest on your shoulders.  Are you prepared?  How many pets does your city allow?  How often must you vaccinate against rabies?  What can you do about a neighbor’s barking dog?  Bone up on the services we provide as well as the rights, responsibilities, and requirements of all pet owners.
