Services & Resources

Managing Intake

Due to an increase in the number of animals entering our shelter, Capital Humane Society is working on ways to manage our intake. We currently have a surrender wait list. If you are able to hold onto your pet, staff can place you on our waiting list and contact you once we have an appointment available. If you are not able to hold onto the pet, please contact our admissions center at 402-441-4488 ext. 2 to schedule a surrender ASAP.

If you need assistance but aren't sure our resources will help, please contact our Pet Retention Coordinator at klingenfelter@capitalhumanesociety.org or 402-473-5364

Our goal is to keep as many pets in their current homes as possible. Please refer to our resources to see if we can help you and your pet.

If you are not able to permanently keep your pet, please consider rehoming on your own or finding a rescue to take in your pet. Click the links below to learn more about how to rehome and for a list of rescues.
