Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome
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.

Fostering Saves a Life
Mercedes is a female St. Bernard who was picked up as a stray outside of Lincoln and never reclaimed. She weighs 103 pounds and is estimated at between 3 and 5 years of age. She does not do well with other animals, and she tested positive for the dreaded heartworm disease. In many cases, a dog in this situation would end up euthanized.
Capital Humane Society reached out to Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue about the possibility of placing this dog into a foster home. A few days later, Scott saw NNKCR's post on Facebook about Mercedes and her photo spoke to him. With no pets and a quiet home, Scott imagined he would have an ideal place for Mercedes to recover from heartworm treatment. When he met Mercedes, an instant connection was felt by both dog and man.
Cause for Paws and Sadie Dog Fund pledged to assist with the cost of treatment. CHS waived the pull fee and offered to spay Mercedes when a vet has deemed her fit for surgery. Dog loving individuals are helping to cover the remainder through donations.
Please consider making a contribution to help heal a sweet dog's heart. Donations can be made by sending a check made payable to: Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue. Mail to NNKCR, PO Box 6295, Lincoln, NE 68506. Please note "Mercy for Mercedes" in the notes section of your tax-deductible gift.
Update: Mercedes received her 3rd treatment on May 1st and is doing well. Next heartworm test will be done in June and we are praying for good news!

Charlie, aka Lil' Dude was found hiding under a porch. He managed to survive some very cold weather, but was finally captured. His veterinary check up revealed that he had been shot in the mouth and had a broken jaw! He received a bone graft in his jaw and most of the teeth on his right side were removed, but he is healing nicely.
Morocco, or "Mo" as he is known by his friends, is an 8 lb. Chihuahua/ Pomeranian mix. He was born on 12/15/2011 and he has been neutered. Mo was diagnosed with a luxating patella (floating knee cap). He had surgery to repair his knee at the end of April. He is doing very well and we expect him to be fully recovered by June.
We need your help to continue to
rescue dogs requiring surgeries to get them healthy and ready to be adopted. Often, we are the dog’s last chance for a long happy life. Your donation WILL save lives. Thank you!
Because gifts made to volunteer driven organizations make a huge impact. To date, we've rehomed 190 dogs with a 98 percent success rate. We partner with shelters when they ask for our help in an effort to increase their live-release rate and inch us all closer to becoming no kill communities. Here are just a few of the many dogs we are helping this month...
