The Coalition for Pet Protection will be celebrating 27 years of service in 2019. We are proud to be a vital part of the Lincoln area animal welfare community. There have been changes in our mission, but our core values stay the same: to help families with their animal companions.

CPP currently provides financial assistance for critical care for felines. Cases this year include assistance for emergency dental work, a broken leg and care for a cat with seizures.

CPP also offers an emergency dog/cat food pantry. This is one of longest-running pantries in the Lincoln area, and one of the most user-friendly.

The past 27 years have been filled with many changes, one of them being the technology in the way we communicate. Today, our website is a one-stop venue for information, not only about our group, but for a plethora of ideas and pertinent knowledge about many resources regarding animals.

Check out our website at petcoalition.org. You will find help with how to trim cat claws, why cats like catnip and litter box basics. Guidelines are also listed for assistance, along with any current pet food recalls, list of local vets, animal ordinances, and the best way to rehome a pet.

A recent addition to the site is a blog. This is a great way to learn about  events/news of CPP and other area animal welfare groups There is also vital information on animal care such as emergency preparedness. 

The Coalition will once again be part of Give to Lincoln Day on Thursday, May 30. All donations will be matched with a proportional share of a $450,000 challenge grant through Lincoln Community Foundation. Information is available at givetolincoln.com. Donations may be made through this website throughout May.

Call the CPP hotline at 402-434-7922, or email inquiries to info@petcoalition.org. CPP is a 501(c)(3) organization. All funds are tax deductible and are used in the Lincoln area.
