Capital Humane Society receives outpour of donations for pet pantry

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- The Pawsitive Impact Project is making astonishing strides in the community of Lincoln.

In June, Channel 8 spoke with Lauryn Nobbe, Director of Behavior and Placement who said they were in dire need of pet supplies.

Now, she said donations are streaming into the pantry each week.

“It’s been great,” said Nobbe. “I mean, last week, we fed, I want to say like 300 pounds of just dry dog food.”

The pet pantry is now looking to expand its reach with a potential grant.

“So coming up, Union Bank & Trust has The Big Give that going on,” said Nobbe. “Non-profits have been selected and voted for, and we are one of them…”

Nobbe says if they’re selected, Pawsitive Project could win up to “a million dollars.”

She says the excitement for the prize has spawned ideas for how to help the non-profit even more.

“It would also help us expand to do grooming, behavioral training with dogs, even cats,” said Nobbe. “We could do spay and neuter vouchers for dogs, and help people pay for that.”

Nobbe went on to share she even hopes to provide pet fee assistance to those in rental agreements where payment is necessary to own pets on the property.

The Big Give begins in September, and if selected, the Pawsitive Impact Project could make “furtastic” strides.

Donations are accepted at the on-site locations of 1626 South Street on Wednesday from 1 PM to 4 PM.
