Cole Camp City Pound

Petey - from Cole Camp Pound

As homeless or lost pets are found, they are provided with a caring place until they can be placed in a permanent, caring home - either their owner's home (if lost), or adopted by caring persons. The pound is operated by staff of the Cole Camp City, with support and help from the Cole Camp Community.

Our Cole Camp City Pound serves a population of approximately 1,028 residents and Cole Camp has a contract to also serve Lincoln, population of approximately 1,026 residents. There are two rural pounds, 2 dog capacity each.

The pounds are supported with several bales of straw yearly for the pound dog houses from the Cole Camp Steam & Antique Tractor Club. Local citizens & members of Whiteman Air Force Base constructed a large chain link exercise area to provide for daily exercise of impounded dogs.

The $50 Adoption fee on pound dogs includes spay/neuter & Rabies, as required, performed by a local vet.

Impounded dogs are listed in the Cole Camp Courier and Lincoln New Era newspapers. If not claimed by the owner they are available for adoption.

Adopted pets are spayed/neutered PRIOR to adoption, then placed with the new owner. Our goal is to have all pets altered PRIOR to leaving the pound.

"Pennies for Pooches" collection points at area businesses help improve life for the impounded dogs by providing funds to assist with spay, neuter, vaccinations, worming, chew bones, and dog food. Some of the collection points are The Cole Camp Pharmacy, Heimsoth Brothers Feed, Maple Street Cafe, and Rosebud Gifts & Fabric, Calgaro's Pizza, Handel Haus, and The Red Baron.

Grant funds, when received, are used only to spay & neuter to help reduce over population.
