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!

Kiara and her sisters have tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus).  FIV typically causes a weakening of the cat’s immune system. It is the same class of virus as HIV (a lentivirus); however, only cats can get FIV. People and dogs cannot.  FIV-positive cats can live normal lives, both in quality and duration. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. But if they’re well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets.  More information: https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/fiv-cats-faqs-feline-immunodeficiency-virus
