Thank you for helping our loving animals!

More than 25 animals live at Urban Acres, where they enjoy safety, peace, and companionship while bringing joy and healing to our community members. We operate almost exclusively on donations from caring individuals like you. All of our staff work on an unpaid, volunteer basis, so your gift directly serves the animals


Here’s how your generous cash donation helps:

  • Feed our 10+ horses, pony, cat (Barn Manager), ducks, turkeys, and chickens a healthy diet throughout the year.

  • Provide veterinary services when needed, like medicine to treat Star’s COPD and check-ups for our oldest resident, Gypsy.

  • Maintain, repair, and upgrade the facilities, which include functional structures like fencing, storage sheds, horse waterers, and winter shelters.

Thanks to generous donors like you, we have enough hay to feed the equines through this winter. This allows us to focus on our second most urgent need: safe enclosures.


We’re asking for your help to replace our dangerous fencing with safe and permanent fencing. This project will cost at least $20,000.

After 30 years, the current fencing is collapsing. A loose horse can cause dangerous and even deadly accidents on the busy adjacent Sorensen Parkway. Today, rotting railroad ties and severe leaning caused by water erosion are temporarily secured with T-posts. With your help, we plan to replace our 900 feet of protective fencing with professionally-installed deep iron pipes and welded fencing so that erosion and rot will never be problems again.

Will you give a gift today to help us create a safer home for these animals and for the residents of North Omaha?
