Voice for Companion Animals started with a seed of an idea. Robyn Mays of Grand Island planted the seed in 2014 because of her extraordinary love of animals.

Her experience in shelters and rescues gave her the perfect background to shepherd VCA into what it has become today. She understands the very real need to go inside the home of veterans and the senior population, with limited financial resources, to maintain the human/pet connection. A connection that is so vital to both of their lives.

Civic Responsibility

Through the AniMeals program, VCA does not turn away anyone, who over the short term, cannot afford to properly feed or care for their pet.

Since our VCA programs are provided as a temporary assistance, we require that pet owners take steps towards self-sufficiency.


We educate pet owners on spay and neutering, vaccinations and when needed, provide instruction on general pet care.

Urgent Care

VCA also offers emergency help when pet safety is a concern. We work with other agencies to make sure pets are safe, sheltered and cared for. It is at the heart of what we do.

Fertile Ground

As we grow, we continually review steps on how best to broaden our footprint in central Nebraska. We understand the need for our specialized help is widespread. It’s only through the continued support of our wonderful donors and benefactors that we can maintain and grow our community’s much-needed Voice for Companion Animals.
