Capital Humane Society urges adoptions as shelter sees a big increase in dogs

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – This is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and there are plenty of dogs to choose from in Lincoln.

More than 40 years ago, Adopt a Shelter Dog Month was started to help millions of dogs find forever homes.

Capital Humane Society’s Matt Madcharo says there’s no better time than now to come out and adopt.

“There are lots of dogs looking for homes,” he said.

Madcharo said the shelter has seen an increase in the last few months, with dozens of dogs entering the shelter.

“Last year at Capital Humane Society, we’ve seen levels of dog intake that we haven’t seen for many, many years,” he said. “We’re seeing well over 200 dogs a month coming into the shelter in June, August and even September.”
