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!

Cabbage is a friendly outgoing shorthair cat. She enjoys spending time with people and loves to show off her toys to you. Weighing in at over 17 pounds, Cabbage is on a managed weight loss program to improve her health. She’s already responding well and has lost nearly 2 pounds since coming into Valley Humane’s care on July 10th. Due to her size, Cabbage is prone to constipation but daily medication and a watered down diet is helping her avoid tummy troubles. She takes her medication well and as she loses weight, her GI issues are expected to improve. She is playful and curious and at only 3 years old, she should have a long healthier life ahead of her!

 

 

Sharpay is a lovely lady who arrived with several health concerns.  She presented with a sore mouth and a dental cleaning was mandatory.  Since her cleaning and extractions, she is eating soft food.  Sharpay also has a hernia and a cyst on her tail, but it appears she has lived with those for quite some time and they are not causing her trouble.  She is feeling much better after her dental and ready to find a forever home!

 

 

Gordal is a playful friendly kitten…you’d never know he has limited vision in his right eye!  Due to his impairment, Gordal is recommended for a low-stress indoor-only home.  Gordal does have scarring on his cornea but is still cute as a button!

 

 

 

Chit has limited ability to hear but that doesn’t stop him from singing his truth!  Chit is as chatty as can be and will reward you with a rumbling purr when held.  He may be deaf and thus is recommended to be indoor only.
