Story
I am trying to find a home for this sweet boy who just showed up at our place. After a month or so of feeding him outside and slowly getting him to trust me, I've moved him in to our screened in porch, and inside with us all day. He is becoming quite the cuddler, he has to have his morning hug. I don't think he's ever known kindness or love in his life, but he's learning how nice it is to be fed and have a safe place to sleep. He was so skittish at first, and I thought he would always want to be an outdoor cat, but he's quickly starting to like the indoor life, he doesn't have much desire to go out anymore. I have had him neutered, vaccinated, treated for flea and tick, and microchipped, and he uses the litter box. The vet thinks he is about 2.5 yrs old. *We have 4 cats already, and a chihuahua so I'd prefer to find him another home, otherwise I would keep him, he's so sweet. I'll keep him as long as it takes. Fee is negotiable, I spend a lot on food, that was a consideration

Story
Bambi is a young girl (b. June 2021) who had a rough start to life. This little gal came to rescue as a feral kitty but has slowly gotten used to life inside! According to her foster, Bambi's biggest challenge has been learning to trust people. She says that Bambi is finally comfortable accepting affection from humans, and she is interacting with the resident cats more and more... She's an independent girl, and will likely maintain that streak for life, but she has watched her foster love on and play with the other resident pets and observing these positive interactions has helped her feel safe and grow more confident. She likes to sit close to her foster but isn't a fan of being picked up just yet, and she loves her food and treats! Bambi's foster says she is a gentle girl and litterbox trained. Bambi needs a future home that doesn't mind taking things slow... really slow! Bambi also needs to go to a home with another resident kitty because that's been key to getting this girl comfy. In her foster home, Bambi has inched toward trust by watching the other cats and their relationship with the humans in the home; it's easy to see that everyone's in good hands! Bambi's foster has recently taken in a small kitten, and Bambi is very close and affectionate with this baby. She'll let the little kitty snuggle up real close while she licks her face clean! We'll keep updating as Bambi continues her rescue journey. The suggested adoption donation for Bambi is $65. We are a 501c3 organization which means that your donation may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. All donations go toward the high cost of veterinary care for our animals in rescue, providing supportive services to animals in homes, and funding for special programs like Muddy Paws Parvo Puppy Project. 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.  If this pet is not spayed or neutered at the time of adoption due to limited vetting availability, a voucher will be given to the adopter for a free spay/neuter procedure at Val Verde Animal Hospital. Spay/neuters completed elsewhere will be reimbursed $80/dog or $55/cat once proof of alteration has been received by Muddy Paws. Alterations are required for all Muddy Paws adoptions. The adoption contract states alters must be done within ONE month of the adoption date or the adopter will be in breach of the contract. Adopters are required to provide proof of alteration to Muddy Paws Rescue immediately following the procedure. Thank you in advance for your compliance. 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.  To learn about Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue or donate to our animals, please visit our website at MuddyPawsSecondChanceRescue.com or our Facebook Page.  ##1178358##

Story
Bagheera! This sweet guy (born March 2022) is learning about life indoors! Since coming into the rescue, he has put on some pounds. He loves to cuddle, play, and get all the attention, once he is comfortable with you. He currently lives with other cats, however, it took a lot of slow intros and lots of playtime. Bagheera is a little selective about who he meets, so the adopter would need to have a few intros with Bagheera so he can learn to trust you.  Can you provide this guy with his furever home? The suggested adoption donation for Bagheera is $65. 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. 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.

Story
Meet Lucky, a Domestic Shorthair born approximately 4/2019. Lucky is a typical young cat who loves attention, regularly climbing and zooming around. He's very vocal and friendly and curious about new people. He likes to be close and pet, but doesn't love being held. He loves being brushed and plays with his toys often. Lucky is a very curious little guy, so it may be best to keep things out of reach, especially shoes. He also has accidents outside of his litter box from time to time, so he'll need a lot of patience and possibly re-training. Lucky wants to give you all of his attention, so give him a chance today! The suggested adoption donation for Lucky is $65, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).
