2016 Orientation/Training Sessions
(you must attend both sessions)




Saturday, January 9th, 2016 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.




Saturday, January 16th, 2016 9 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

All volunteer training takes place in the auditorium at NHS at 8929 Fort Street.

So lend a paw and become a Nebraska Humane Society volunteer -- you can schedule your hours whenever it’s most convenient for you.

* A Couple of Notes:  Due to the number of high school students who wish to volunteer we ask each to write and attach a short essay on why they’d like to volunteer at the Shelter and what they hope to gain from the experience. Students will receive a call from our coordinator when they are accepted into the program.  Student applications must be submitted at least ONE MONTH prior to the orientation.

Also, because of liability issues the Nebraska Humane Society does not have a program for Court Ordered Diversion.
