My story

Meowww! We are Tesla and Lexus. We are rather fancy, just as our names indicate. Just ask us! It’s Tesla here! We are a bonded pair and Lexus is my mama. I just adore her. I’m very playful and enjoy giving love bites to let you know I’m ready to roll! But I’m also very clear on when I’m done & ready to wind down. As you know being a handsome high end cat is tough, I need my beauty rest. Also, I’d rather you didn’t pick up the merchandise, we prefer to be admired and pampered without being held. But please know, if we want to snuggle we will come to you! Those tiny two leggers you call kids always try to drag us around and that just cramps our style. My mama, Lexus,  is very loving and gentle. We snuggle together and can be very playful. Like I said, she’s the best. We are declawed so don’t even think about letting us outside, but please provide us a nice area of sunshine so we can bask in the sun. Again, it’s tough being us. Our current parents are deciding to travel and that’s not the life for us. So what do you say? Click that adopt button and bring us home!

Tesla and Lexus

The suggested adoption donation for Lexus & Tesla is $130. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization which means that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals.  In 2021 alone, we were able to provide animal Healthcare costing over $306,000 covered mainly through adoption fees.

Please Note: A Courtesy Post designates that an animal is still in the home of its owner and not in a Muddy Paws foster. This means that our exposure to the animal is limited since we are only assisting the owner in finding a new home for their pet. If needed, we will put you in touch with the owner if you have any questions.

Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the animal’s foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the animal. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver. 

Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each animal, based on the animal’s needs. If you and the animal are not a good match, we will help you select another animal, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

Go meet their pets

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

More about this rescue

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.
