Rainwater Kennels was established
in the early 1970s and is the most prominent full service kennel facility in
the area. Larry and Helen Heil, the current owners, purchased the business in
1993 and have continued to offer outstanding service and care for their customers' pets,
while adding new services and products to meet your needs.
For the hunters and nature watchers, we are located in south central Nebraska's Rainwater
