Consider it kind of a potential-pets-on-parade showcase.
Saturday, the Nebraska Humane Society will host 25 to 30 licensed rescue groups and their animals in a free adoption showing from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the society's headquarters southeast of 90th and Fort Streets in northwest Omaha.
Pam Wiese of the Nebraska Humane Society said the Taylor-made Rescue Rally will involve 100 or so adoptable animals from Omaha and Council Bluffs-area dog breed rescues and cat rescues.
The rescue groups run their operations out of licensed foster rescue homes under nonprofit status, said Wiese. The operators are knowledgeable on the breeds they house, she said, and will offer breed-specific advice to visitors Saturday.
The annual rally is named for the late Betty Taylor, who worked with animal rescue groups in the area, Wiese said.
