Special Needs Pets

As if losing one’s home weren’t enough, some animals face additional challenges which make it harder for them to find another. From physical impairments, to chronic health issues requiring long-term treatment, to needing extra understanding and patience while they learn to trust again, all of them are just as loving and deserving of love as any cute kitten or playful puppy!

Our Adoption Counselors will make sure you have a full understanding of any special needs your new pet has, whether it’s training, medication, or simply an indoor-only environment. Make room in your heart today for one of these very special animals and discover just how special they are!


CassidyCassidy arrived at VHS in December with an injured rear leg he was unable to walk on.  He had been found as a stray  in the Stockton area and the cause of his injury was unknown.  After a successful surgery and 5 weeks in foster care, his leg and hip have been repaired and he’s building muscle back up.  Cassidy is getting stronger every day and ready to make a new life in a forever home!  Cassidy is now walking on all 4 legs and expected to fully recover.
