NPLB - Dog
in the Spotlight
We have lots of wonderful animals
available for adoption, but
this is one of the special ones that we would like to bring to your
- Boxer / Lab mix
we are and our mission
We are a small group of
the Omaha, NE area that do this in our spare time because of our love
for the animals. We all have jobs that we have to go to everyday, just
like you. We do not have a shelter, so many of our pets are
foster homes. We rescue animals from shelters, clinics, and
private homes that
are in danger of being euthanized. We do not concentrate on
any one breed because we love them all. Nothing would make us as happy
sending one of our many animals to a wonderful home with a loving
family to live out their lives being spoiled to death.

cause run by some very nice local people. We hope that our
participation helped to make this a successful event.

No Pets Left
Behind is a huge advocate of spaying and neutering your pets. Every
hour in the U.S., it is estimated that more than 70,000 dogs and cats
are born a day in the United States,
compared to 10000 humans per day. Many of these animals will be
It is estimated that at least 61% of dogs and 75% of cats in
will be euthanized. The Humane Society of the United States
estimates that 6 to 8 MILLION dogs and cats will be euthanized each
organizations have estimates clear up to 15 million!!! So, by
altering our pets, we will not only be contributing to their
better health, we could be potentially saving millions of lives.
Being involved in rescue, we see alot of things that break
hearts. Pet overpopulation is one of the biggest problems that can be
fixed. We can all make a difference. Many areas have organizations that
cost spay and neuter programs. For information please contact your
local shelter, veterinarian
or animal control center for information on how to get in contact with
organizations and take advantage of their programs. We can all do our
part to control pet overpopulation by making sure our pets do not add
statistics. The following is a great website for statistics on pet
adopting a pet
If you are
in one of our wonderful animals needing a forever home, please contact
one of the people
on our "Contact Us"
page. All of us work full-time jobs, so it may take several
for us to get back to you. It is usually best to email, or text
message, if you can -
that way we can easily send you an application.
Our adoption process
begins with an application. Once we have received and
approved your application, we will contact you and set up a meeting for
you and the
you are interested in. We will then do a home visit. In most cases we
will try to introduce you to the pet in your home. That way we can do
the introduction, dog/cat introduction (if applicable), and the home
at the same time. When you adopt a
pet, you must sign a contract with us. This contract specifies basic
requirements in regard to treatment of that pet. They are reasonable,
common-sense requirements, which include not leaving your pet in a hot
car, providing good food and fresh water, keeping veternarian care
etc. It also requires that you return the pet to No Pets Left Behind if
the adoption does not work out. This applies for the life of the pet.
not want our pets to ever end up in a shelter again!
Our adoption fees vary
and are based on how much money we have
to spend for vet care. All of our pets
spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm, and
micro-chipped. They are also given necessary preventatives and
treatments so that we can keep them healthy. We do our best to give you
a healthy pet at adoption time.

founder, Carla Rasmussen who was taken from us too soon by cancer. She
was the most amazing person that many of us have known, or will ever
meet and we all miss her more than can be said with words.
NPLB - Announcement
We at No Pets Left Behind are
announce that the abused pit bulls who were found in the Loess Hills
that made it through, have all been placed with other rescues who can
better suit their needs for medical care and rehabilitation. This was a
long and heartbreaking process, but well worth it when you see what
these poor animals have been through, and even more so when you get to
know them and see their spirit. They have all been through hell, but
still want nothing more than simple affection from a human. The
following is a link to a web page dedicated to all of the dogs and
their journey home.
