January 14, 2021 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

We are still operating on a Limited Access Policy. Because we care about our community and want to help stop the spread of the virus by protecting our community, staff, guests and volunteers, we are taking steps as a precaution due to the COVID-19 Risk Dial for the area being at "High."

  • Stronger social distancing restrictions will be in place, meaning one person or family unit at a time will be allowed in the facility and we will be going by appointments during our normally regular business hours.
  • An application for adoption is available on our website at www.mccookhumanesociety.com.  Under the tab dog or cat, please indicate which specific pet you are interested in adopting.
  • Our front door will be locked during our otherwise normal open hours. You may knock and if we do not have an otherwise scheduled appointment, or someone else in the facility, you will be able to come in and view our pets available for adoption.
  • Masks are mandatory.
  • We ask that you do not come into the facility if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19, if you have traveled to a known high risk area within the last 14 days, if you are at high risk, or if you are showing any symptoms of the virus.

We appreciate your continuing support and understanding during these unusual times and wish everyone a happy, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting our facility.

  • Come check out our "Adopt-A-Kennel" program where our local individuals and businesses can show the community their support for our area's homeless animals.  This month's (JANUARY) Adopt-A-Kennel Sponsorship is in memory of Jim Helm of Ord Nebraska... Dog Trainer & Breeder of Lewellan English Setters (Fantastic Setters, "Sage" and "Flagg").  A very special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continuing support.

  • This week's wishlist: We are out of newspapers and puppy pads (we use them for the cat cage liners)! We can always use the paper towels, hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, bleach, plain old Special Kitty cat litter, bath towels and cat/dog food and toys that you bring in! We truly do appreciate those of you who bring us the items on this wishlist when you can. YOU are appreciated more than you can know.

  • We have a program that is special. Our "Adopt-A-Kennel Program" is the perfect way to honor someone or memorialize them by adopting a kennel in their name. Each kennel will have a brightly displayed sign with the name proudly displayed on the kennel. You can participate by adopting a cat or dog kennel. Call us for more information, or visit our website www.mccookhumanesociety.com for more information and to fill out a form online.

  • The spay & neuter reimbursement fees are still being waived on the altered feline friends at this time... the fund may be running low, but there is still some money available in that fund, and as long as there is, the spay & neuter reimbursement fees will be waived!

  • The FIFTEENTH Annual "Shoot for the Shelter" Pool Tournament is Saturday, Jan. 30th at TJ's Family Fun Center! Folks, it filled up fast again this year. For more information about the tourney, if you'd like to become a sponsor, help out, or donate a prize for raffle, you can message the shelter on FB or give us a call. Give your phone number and best time to contact. You can call the shelter at 308-345-2372 during Monday through Friday from 2pm until 5pm and Saturdays from Noon until 4pm. We are as always looking forward to this exciting event and appreciate your support! Remember, you don't have to play in the tournament to have an awesome time at the event!

  • We still have more of the brand new "Cats & Dogs of McCook" Calendars available at the shelter. The McCook Nebraska Cat Pack (our super friends and fundraising youth group) didn't sell them all yet, so we have a few and they'd make excellent gifts! Just knock on the door during our otherwise normal business hours!

  • When you're checking out our website, make sure you check out our new section featuring our Up To The Minute Pet Listings!

  • Don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook to keep up to date on all of the upcoming fun events and fundraisers.

  • HAPPY TAILS! The following pets have been adopted: Diesel, Harvest, Harry, Nova, Nicky, Spirit and Lucy.
