Ruff Beginnings...Purrfect Endings

Start Over Rover is the only no-kill, non-profit animal rescue and shelter located in Hastings, NE. Rover is operated primarily by volunteers and is beginning it’s 7th year of operation! We rely solely on donations from the general public and local/regional businesses and groups.

Our first priority is finding good homes for unwanted companion animals, whether they are abandoned, neglected, abused, strays, puppy mill “cast offs”, or simply unwanted by their current owners.

Another priority of Rover’s is reducing the pet overpopulation without euthanization. We pay for the spay or neuter, medical care, vaccinations, and daily care of each animal that enters Rover.
