Adoptions at our Pieloch Pet Adoption Center will be by appointment only to follow recommendations from local and national health authorities regarding social distancing. To make an appointment please call our Pieloch Pet Adoption Center at (402) 441-4488 ext 1. Our Admissions & Assessment Center is open but is only allowing one customer/party in the building, at a time. Please be patient, as our staff works to assist you. We ask for visitors to please wear a mask and practice social distancing when visiting either of our locations.

Our foster network is a vital part of our ability to help more animals. You can make a difference for these animals by taking them into your home and helping prepare them for adoption. To learn more about the foster program, click here.


Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering for Capital Humane Society. Our volunteers are part of a compassionate, non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of companion animals. 

We are currently working on revamping our volunteer program in order to remove barriers, where possible, in an effort to make helping us easier!  Our goal is to continue to bring volunteers onboard that are willing to help with the never-ending cleaning and facilities maintenance we face in animal sheltering.  Additionally, we plan to focus on effectively matching our volunteer’s special skills and interests with other areas where assistance is needed, in order to make the greatest impact toward our mission.  

While this program is "under construction" we are asking anyone who is interested in joining our devoted team of volunteers to complete the Volunteer Application below:

Volunteer Application

Please note: 

Due to the number of applications we receive on a daily basis and the time required to process them it can take 3-5 business days to receive a response.  Your patience is greatly appreciated!!


People of all ages often choose to help homeless pets at the shelter by having pet supplies from our wish list donated to the shelter in honor of their birthday or a special occasion. This creative and kind act is a wonderful way to show support to the humane society. To view our Amazon and general wish list, click here.

You can also help homeless pets in our community by donating tie blankets and other enrichment items. You can find the instructions below.

Thank you so much for your kindness & support!
