Mission Statement

Heartland German Shepherd Rescue (HUGS) is a Nebraska-licensed, all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit dog rescue organization founded in May 2015. We operate out of the Omaha-Lincoln, Nebraska area. Our focus is to save German Shepherd dogs at risk of being euthanized in shelters or other dire situations. We also help other German Shepherds and mixes, Heelers, and other Herding breeds in need, as we are able to.


Once again, HUGS will have its Holiday Giftwrap Booth at Westroads Mall (10000 California St, Omaha), starting on Black Friday and throughout the Holidays! The booth is located on the lower level, near JC Penney. We will be wrapping items for a minimum donation based on package size, with all proceeds going to benefit the dogs. After Dec 15th, the pace will steadily pick up, so whenever possible, we recommend picking up a shift of two before then, so we can train you and practice a little, while things are still relatively slow. If this is not an option, no worries! Just sign up when you can, and we will teach you the ropes! This is a super fun fundraiser, for a great cause. We hope you will join us!
