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!

Neptune FaceNeptune is a big bundle of love with beautiful eyes! He is looking for a home that will give him a little extra love. He has Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is a condition that causes the heart walls to thicken, which decreases the heart’s ability to pump blood through the body. Most cats do not show any signs of HCM, though it can cause tiredness, loss of appetite, or sudden heart attacks. Neptune has a moderate to mild case of HCM, which is not expected to worsen. He needs twice-daily medication and annual ultrasounds for the rest of his life.
