This Year's Project: Animal Care
The Beatrice Humane Society is a no-kill animal shelter offering pet adoptions through our shelter in Beatrice and both Lincoln PetSmart Adoption Centers. We are an organization dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of life of animals. Our life-saving activities continue to grow each year- and last year was an incredible year. In 2018 we helped 854 animals and are on track to help even more in 2019! In fact, we have one of the highest (if not the highest) animal save rates in municipal shelters in the state at 97.9%, meaning we only had to euthanize 2.1% of animals coming into our care because of severe medical or behavioral problems that we couldn't treat or rehabilitate. Our organization primarily helps cats and dogs, but in just the last couple of years we have also helped with guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, hawks, bats, snakes, fish and a tortoise! We want to be a no-kill resource for our community and beyond as we continue to find more ways to assist animals and their human companions.
Current Project: Animal Care
Our animal care costs are our greatest expense, and when it comes down to it not a place that we can cut costs as a No-Kill Shelter! We provide all care for an animal entering our shelter including food, medical care, emergency care, spays/neuters, dentals if necessary and more. We make a commitment to each animal to get them ready for adoption and then find them their perfect forever home. Each pet has as long as they need to find their forever home as we do not euthanize for time or space.
