GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Central Nebraska Humane Society has had a ton of adoptions during the North Shore Animal League America’s Tour for Life campaign this week. It’s an adoption event they do every year to get as many pets adopted as they can.

So far, the Humane Society has been doing really well.

‘It’s actually been great. We’ve had a ton of cat adoptions already this week and I think we’ve done six adoptions today alone which has been amazing, so we’re really going to see some empty kennels,” said Social Media Coordinator Miquelle Levander.

The shelter has been promoting the campaign on all of their social media sites to get the word out.

“We’ve done adoptions for people in Colorado, New York, people have flown in from Utah, so it’s pretty cool to see the affects of social media branch out and it works,” Levander said.

The shelter believes spreading awareness on pet adoptions is crucial to help all shelters become no-kill shelters.

“If we keep feeding in to these puppy mills and these backyard breeders so to speak, they’re going to keep breeding because we’re not putting an end to it, where as, we can put that on the back burner and start adopting from shelters or rescues - then we can kind of put a halt to all of that breeding that’s not necessary because shelters are full,” Levander said.

The Humane Society is running a special right now. All of their dog adoptions are 25% off and all of their cat adoptions cost $50. People have until the campaign ends this Sunday to take advantage of the discounts.
