Spayed or Neutered,
Scared, in a loud kennel, shivering in a corner, unsure of what was going on, stood sweet baby Armani. He was in what could have been his final hours of life. Sadly, Armani was running out of time, and then just in time, he was saved by a wonderful Muddy Paws Volunteer who took him into her home! Luckily for him, fate was on his side. Armani is a Lab Mix b. July 2022 and is now looking for a home that will love him for the rest of his life. Armani is a little shy and scared of new people, but with patience and love, he comes around pretty fast. But boy, let us tell you, once you are in his circle, he is the cutest, most loving dog you will ever meet. This guy wants nothing more than to be with his people, whether it's cuddling on the couch or outside playing with his toys, as long as he's got you, he is HAPPY. Due to his shyness and the fact that he is learning to trust the world again, Armani would do best in a home where he was the baby, so no kiddos under 16, please. He also needs a fenced-in yard so he has a safe & secure place to burn off his energy. This guy likes to be the king of the castle and would do best in a home as the only dog. Armani is a very smart boy and has picked up lots of training. He is almost fully muzzle trained and is catching on to Sit and Lay Down pretty fast.
To help ensure Armani has the smoothest transition into his furever home, he will require a couple of sessions with one of our Positive Reinforcement/Relationship-based Trainers. Lucky for him, every dog adopted out through Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue comes with lifetime free behavioral training with one of our Positive Reinforcement/Relationship-based Trainers!
The suggested adoption donation for Armani has been partially covered by a group of animal lovers who want to see Armani in a safe, loving home, his adjusted adoption donation is $150. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning 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 provided animal Healthcare totaling over $307,000 covered mainly through adoption fees.
Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application has completed our prescreen steps, 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 Second Chance Rescue. Alterations are required for all Muddy Paws adoptions. The adoption contract states that 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 Second Chance Rescue immediately following the procedure. Thank you in advance for your compliance.
Adoptions for Armani are limited to the area within 50 miles of Omaha so that s/he can continue to take advantage of free training from our certified positive reinforcement trainer.
Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks, and a Home Visit (Virtual in some cases) 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.
