Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome  




No Kill
Rescue Home. For Adoption. Volunteer. Donate. Services. New Beginnings.

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes.


To accomplish this, we do three things:


NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.


If you’re interested in adopting or becoming a foster pet parent to one of our rescue dogs, email us.

SENIOR DOGS are an excellent choice for anyone wanting a dog as a companion.  These dogs tend to be very loving and attentive to their owners and are happy to be in their company.  Most require less exercise than a young dog, but do enjoy an occasional walk.  If you’re looking for a dog who won’t require a lot of training time, then please consider a senior dog. These dogs deserve permanent homes. The right homes are out there, we just need your help to connect them with the right senior dogs.  Having a loyal friend to spend time with is as good for the dog as it is for the person who adopted them.  Please help spread the word and let’s find these seniors a good home!


Change a Life:

Foster a Dog

We’re looking for volunteers who can provide temporary homes to dogs until they are adopted. This is key to our ability to rescue dogs — the more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can save. We will provide the medical care, food costs and can supply you the things needed to care for the dog.  You provide the TLC and help get the dog ready for his/ her permanent home.


If you are able to foster, please email us at   If you know of someone who may be interested, please pass along our email address -


Are you retired or a person with some free time who is looking for a meaningful way to spend it? Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue is looking for volunteers who have the time to help us rescue homeless dogs and find them good homes.  Our rescue has many areas in need of extra help. If you are a dog lover and want to be able to make a difference in the lives of dogs in need, we have positions available.  Your work can be done from home or, if you prefer some travel (mostly within 50 miles), you could choose to help in the area of doing home visits for potential adopters and fosters.  You should be able to work a minimum of 10 hours per week and we will train you in the area you choose to help.  Some positions will require basic computer skills, some require organizational skills and others just need you to be able to communicate well with others.  These positions are unpaid unless you count the satisfaction you’ll get from being part of an organization that rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes dogs. If you want to make a difference, please email us at
