Tilly is an amazing little girl, and is she ever smart! She is the typical baby and loves to snuggle and play with her playmates or toys. But Tilly has a condition called MegaEsophagus where the tube from her mouth to her tummy is enlarged causing a condition that prevents food from being pushed down the tube naturally. So gravity needs to help, and therefore she has to eat in an upright position and be kept in an upright position for about 25 minutes after eating. There is a chair that keeps dogs with this condition upright, but right now the foster just feeds her and holds her in her arms until she can be put down. This condition is not life threatening and is not thought to be something that would shorten her life span. PLEASE DO RESEARCH ON THIS CONDITION AND TALK TO YOUR VET IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING TILLY.  She is doggie-door trained. 

The suggested donation amount for Tilly is $350, which is TAX DEDUCTIBLE, and goes toward providing supportive services to animals in the home, as well as the high cost of vetting our dogs in rescue.

About Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue, Inc. is a not for profit organization formed in 2014 by a small group of devoted animal lovers, in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area, with many years of rescue experience wanting to make a difference in the lives of dogs. Our rescue focuses on small breed dogs, less than 35 pounds, of any age. It is all volunteer based, and all of our rescue dogs are living in the homes of our volunteers.
Our rescue is unique in that we offer supportive services, such as education and training, to owners considering relinquishing their pet in an effort to try to keep the dog in their home whenever possible. We also educate and offer placement assistance to owners attempting to rehome their pets through social media sites, which can often be risky for the pets as well as the owners.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Watch for Meet and Greets where you are invited to meet our dogs. Individual meetings can also be scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an application on our website. After the vet and personal references have been called, a home visit will be scheduled. If it is determined that the dog is a good match for the family, and vise versa, an adoption date will be arranged.
Suggested donations amounts are based on vetting expenses incurred, age, physical condition, etc.
