It was an open house for Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue.  These pooches were looking for smooches and families at Duteau Subaru.

These canines were on the prowl.  They were looking for someone to take them home.  A few of the dogs had owners waiting for them today.

"They're so loving and so fun, we're just really looking forward to taking her home," a new dog owner said.

Others were there for a meet and greet.  The Nebraska no kill canine rescue was taking applications, the first step in the process to give one of these loving pups a place to call home.

"We're all about trying to find the right fit for each adopter," Rescue officials said.

This group isn't about a speedy adoption process.  It's trying to make the pairings long term.

While it works together with a lot of shelters, this group works a little differently.  It houses the dogs in foster homes until the puppies can find somewhere more permanent.  It helps the dogs feel more like they have a family.

"Her foster parents did a really good job with her and her sisters."

"Nebraska no kill just seems like a really great program that provides home and matches dogs up with owners that they wouldn't find juts because they're not dogs at a pet store," the new owners said.

The open house was about more than just finding the dogs a permanent home.  Ten people did apply for that, but people were also signing up to become foster owners and volunteers.

"Fostering is the key to our whole operation—if we don't have foster homes, we can't save dogs," Karl Skinner said. 

Right now, there are about 30 dogs in foster homes with the rescue.
