Snowball (Courtesy Post)

American Shorthair

Male, 12 yrs 3 mos
Council Bluffs, IA
(when grown) -
Good with cats, Needs special attention, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Snowball and Kirby are both loving and friendly gentlemen looking for a new home.  Their elderly owner is ill and no longer able to care for them.  Snowball and Kirby are usually calm and enjoy being around people.  They are a little shy at first, but will eventually warm up.  Their perfect home would be with adults that have lots of love to give them! The suggested adoption donation for Snowball and Kirby is $100 for both, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).  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 2022 alone, we provided animal Healthcare totaling over $399,000 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. From time to time, owners find a new furever home for their pets outside of Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue and there is a delay in removing them from our site. We apologize if the Courtesy Post you apply to adopt is unavailable for adoption. 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. 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.

American Shorthair

Female, Adult
Glenwood, IA
(when grown) -
Good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
This is Clawdia! She is a diluted tortie. She is the sweetest girl! I found her over a month ago and she was living outside! When she went to get scanned she had an owner! I had posted on the missing pets Facebook page and the humane society tried to contact the owner and no one had came forward. It's over a month, and my other cats are not cool with the new addition. I've been trying to slowly introduce them but nothing is working with my cats. Clawdia is interested but mine are still in attack mode. Clawdia is very nice. She loves receiving and giving kisses. She has never used her claws on me. She loves attention and belly rubs. Her favorite toy is the wand and loves catnip! I don't have enough time to give her the attention she deserves. My 3 cats are a lot for me and one just came down with a medical condition I'm having a hard time affording already.
