If we have any current doggies available for adoption (or coming soon), they will be listed here. Also, you can see some of the doggies we have placed in the past. Some doggies might be listed as adoption pending meaning that they are claimed but not yet placed.
If you would like to apply for one of the available doggies or be considered in the future when more become available, please fill out our online application.
Please review what we expect from our applicants to be considered for adopting one of our doggies. You can also download and review our adoption contract that we have all of our approved applicants sign when they bring one of our doggies into their home.
Please note that Nebraska Sheltie Rescue requires that a placement home has a completely fenced yard in order to be considered. There are too many horrible stories about dogs getting out and having bad things happen. (For more on NSR's fence policy, see here.)
Because of the home visits we do with our applicants prior to placement of a dog, we will only accept applicants in Nebraska or in Iowa, Kansas, and South Dakota within approximately 2 hours of Omaha (i.e. Des Moines, Sioux City, St. Joseph). Additionally, we do not "ship" dogs to people. If you are outside our operation area, please check with other rescues that may be near you at the National Sheltie Rescue Association.
