Nebraska Humane Society’s 2017 Margre Durham Walk for the Animals!

By on September 11, 2017

On Sept 24, 2017, from 11am -2pm, join the Nebraska Humane Society in its 2017 Margre Durham Walk for the Animals. It’s the largest event of the year for the shelter and it would love to see you on its 89th and Fort Streets campus either walking, running, or just hanging out!

Participants can register, gather pledges, and come for a day of fun in the shelter’s meadow. You can walk solo, with your pooch, or form a dog pack with family and friends.  $35 gets you registered, with a T-shirt, but the more you raise the more rewards you earn. If you can’t raise money, join thousands of Omaha pet lovers for the day–it’s $10 at the door.  You’ll have a doggone great time while helping the animals!

Here’s a snapshot of what you can enjoy on Sept. 24:

5K with your K9

Would you rather run than walk on Sept 24? Check out the 5K (before the walk). The run begins at Democracy Park (Just to the east of the shelter on Fort street–go over the bridge and you are there.) Register to run, and then enjoy fun on the meadow, concessions, kids zone and beer garden. $45 gets you a dri-fit shirt and a timed run by Peak Performance on the Keystone Trail. Your dog is welcome too!   Information is available on the NHS website at
