#2 Contact the Nebraska Humane Society

When a person has lost a pet, many times the first thing that comes to mind is the Nebraska Humane Society. If you file a “Found Pet” report with them, they will have a record in the event that somebody contacts NHS looking for their lost pet. Click the following button to go to the Nebraska Humane Society page to file a FOUND report. Or, you may also call 402-905-3410 to file a report over the phone. Once you have filed your found pet report, come back here for our extensive search tips. 

#3 Other Places to Post

Many people have started their own Facebook lost pet pages. Although that may result in more visibility, it more than often leads to confusion. People will post their pets as lost on one page. A person who finds a pet, may not know about that page and will post on a page that they know about. Lost Pets of Omaha Area has 54,000 followers. 

Probably one alternative to consider is posting on NextDoor if you have an account there.

The other local Facebook pages have far fewer followers:
