Bob Downey Celebrates 30 Years at Capital Humane Society

Lincoln, Neb.-- Thirty years ago President and CEO, Bob Downey, started his professional journey with the Capital Humane Society.

The organization has come a long way since 1984 including many changes thanks to Downey. However, one thing that has never changed is Bob Downey's passion and dedication to finding all the animals a loving home.

Downey didn't know life would take him to helping animals. The launch of his career started as just a need to get back to the Capital City.

"I answered a blind ad in the newspaper. I was living in Bellevue, Nebraska at the time," Downey said. He says he wanted to get back to Lincoln to help his parents.

The job was only supposed to be temporary, but Downey says it dug at his heart and that's what made him stay long term.

Downey says the past 30 years held many changes and obstacles. One of the big accomplishments he says is the Pieloch Adoption Center which has really helped the adoption numbers.

Bob Downey plans to continue working for at least another six years.
