Feline Friendz in Nebraska (Omaha, Nebraska 68164) was founded in 2002 and is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer rescue organization.


We are a true no-kill rescue operation. This means the only reason a cat would be put down is in the case of a serious/non curable medical condition. All cats in the care of FFiNE will receive full veterinary care, including spay/neuter, all vaccinations and testing for feline leukemia and FIV infection. As a non-profit organization we rely heavily on private donations and volunteers to keep our mission on track. FFiNE is the only rescue group in the Omaha area dedicated solely to felines and TNR.

The Cat House (Lincoln, Nebraska 68542) was born in 1998 after a trip to a veterinary convention which included a long drive and a long discussions of what we would like to do with our lives. During the next four years, our steps have increased in size and sense of purpose. In July of 1999, The Cat House was invited to use the Luv-a-Pet adoption center at our local PetsMart. In April of 2000 we obtained a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit status that allows most contributions to be tax deductible to the donor. The number of dedicated volunteers continues to increase and as of December 2004, over 700 cats and kittens have been placed in homes.



We then added the Nebraska Alley Cat Alliance, a feral cat management program. NEACA put into place a Trap/Neuter/Release program that works with individuals and communities who need help with stray and feral (unsocialized cats) in their area. We can provide information, guidance and assistance enabling the individuals to have these cats neutered or spayed, tested for infectious diseases and vaccinated. In return, these individuals and communities become “caretakers” for these cats upon their return and the population stays healthy and non-reproductive – a proven and more humane solution than the traditional trap and euthanize policy.

Dr. Arnold (All Feline Veterinary Hospital) has provided us with important veterinary assistance, including writing articles for our newsletter, training volunteers to care for and treat ill cats, and sharing her extensive knowledge of cats as well as her friendship and emotional support. We truly could not have come this far without her help.

Great Plains Pointer Rescue is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping German Shorthairs in Nebraska and Iowa.

Great Plains Pointer Rescue is a network of volunteers who take these dogs into their homes. The dogs live with families to be evaluated. The families learn to know everything they can about the dogs: their pros, cons, weaknesses, strengths, habits, behavior, and much more. The dogs do not spend their days in kennels. They receive training and interaction. When one has a question about a dog, the families have the answer. The rescue’s ethics for adoption are high, and they relay all information about any of their dogs so there are no surprises.

Some of the dogs come from shelters, some are strays, and some are owner surrenders. Because a dog is in rescue, does not mean it has a lot of issues, it just does not have a home.

It is also always good to check with the rescue if your dog is lost. Most times the rescue is called when a GSP shows up somewhere in Nebraska or Iowa.
