York Adopt-A-Pet is a non-profit animal sanctuary located in York Nebraska.  We serve as the primary care givers to the lost and abandoned dogs and cats for our area.  We operate with all volunteers and the love of furry friends we meet. 


  • Hero was brought to the shelter by a volunteer who had witnessed this beautiful, big lovable boy being mistreated.

    He was yelled out, put out in the cold with no food or water. He was very easy to entice into their home and the previous owners didn’t even miss him. He wasn’t doing well at the building so I decided to foster him and brought him to my house on Feb. 5, 2013. He stayed with me until April 5, 2014, when an angel by the name of Vivienne Nielson asked if she could foster him long term.

  • It doesn’t take much to make your dog happy.

    Most of the things that give them joy are quite simple. A gentle touch, a smile when they are looking at you, a kind voice, and the words, “good dog” will bring instant happiness to your pet. A clean water bowl-- changed daily, regular feedings and a comfortable place to sleep are necessities and every dog should have them. But at the top of most dogs’ list would be going for a walk. If a dog is not physically able to do a walk, then a ride in the car is second best. They need the stimulation of something other than the home they live in.

  • Sunday night as I was catching up on entering information into the cat data base for York Adopt a Pet, I reflected back to that day’s adoptions.

    It was a frigid day, when I woke that morning I didn’t know that I would have 2 separate couples who would call on a Sunday where the temperatures hovered at or below the freezing mark. I was thrilled when I received a call from a former classmate from McCool Junction, Sharon (Clark) Cuda.

  • It was a busy day for all of us associated with York Adopt a Pet. It was the near the end of August and we were going out to John Kohl Motors to receive the new van that was being donated to us by Ben and Carol Kohl. We felt so blessed and the mood was light. However, when we were gone, someone took the opportunity to tie a dog up near our shelter and abandon it.
