  • I have said for years that York Adopt a Pet is one of the greatest organizations not only for the City of York, York County and the State of Nebraska, but throughout the country. Our reputation for our no-kill facility, our caring volunteers and the support we receive far and wide is phenomenal.

  • Some of my favorite books are about the founding of our country and I watch every documentary dating back to the revolution. I love the United States of America and all it stands for, so please do not think badly of me if I do not share in celebrating it with loud booming noises that literally rattle the windows of my home.
    When it comes to the 4th of July we must endure the constant setting off of fireworks that disturbs our peace, and yet, we have no recourse but to accept it. Every year we read about someone taking it a step further, making even a louder bomb and blowing off their hand. Sorry he lost his hand, but don’t expect any sympathy from me. Children and animals have been maimed. I feel horrible for them. They are innocent. Every city and town has veterans who have lived with the noise of war. I wonder what this does to them. I would imagine that many are just fine, but what about the ones who aren’t?

  • Back in the 80s and 90s we were rescuing dogs and our only housing for them was at the old city pound located on south Blackburn.

    It only had six kennels with no heat or air conditioning. It was only a matter of time before my sister Judi and I started taking them home with us when we had an overflow, which was all the time. During those years I shared my home with many different dogs. When we built our first shelter, I was able to free up my home again, but not for long.
