Omaha Gives! is a year-round online giving platform organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties. Each year, there is a 24-hour online giving event in May to celebrate nonprofits. This year's giving day will take place on Wednesday, May 23, 2018. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24-hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prizes and challenge funds amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go further.

What do all these precious souls have in common? They were given a second chance by Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue and folks like you.



Muddy Paws is glad to be participating in Omaha Gives!, a 24- hour charitable challenge organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. T

We are always so grateful for your support! This is our largest single fundraiser and we rely on it to cover over $75,000 in veterinary expenses we will have for our animals this year. The actual day of giving is May 23. But you can schedule your donation now. By scheduling your donation now you will put Muddy Paws in the running for a $1000 prize!


Because our second chance is often their only chance, we hope you will join in this fundraising campaign for the dogs, cats and bunnies of Muddy Paws.

Happy tails!

Bronx & Torrey took very different roads to Muddy Paws. Torrey was dumped with her seven puppies in a high-kill shelter in Texas. Bronx was a kitten with meningitis no one wanted. Both were saved by Muddy Paws (as well as Torrey’s puppies!). Today they are in a foster home together writing their own love story until they are adopted – hopefully together.

Sophie was dearly loved by her mom, Janet. But when Sophie needed surgery to save her sight it was more than Janet (a sassy senior citizen) could afford. She reached out to Muddy Paws and we made sure Sophie got her surgery. Janet is now one of our best volunteers.

Violet was found tied to a road sign in western Nebraska. She was malnourished and dehydrated, left to die. Once at the vet it was discovered she had a raging infection in her uterus. No doubt she had been used for breeding and then discarded when she was no longer making money for her owner. We almost lost her but with extensive medical care she rallied and was soon ready to find a loving home.

Lucky was taken to the vet by his owner to be put to sleep because he has seizures. The vet suggested she ask Muddy Paws to take him in instead. He is comfortably settled into his foster home where he is doing well and receiving specialized treatment to get his seizures under control. He is a happy boy who truly deserved a second chance!
