Extra Special Pets

"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language" - Martin Buber

 

Special needs animals make wonderful pets for people who can provide a little special care and extra time. They come in all shapes, sizes, and species. These pets may require special medical treatments, routines, food, or supplies, some help getting around, or need to be an only pet. Special needs pets are not for everyone. Please browse our Extra Special pets to see if one of them will be the perfect companion for you. Our staff members will be able to discuss each pet's needs in more detail with you.

Dave loves to curl up in the highest nest of one of our cat trees for a long winter's nap. When she awakens, she might spend a bit of time watching the birds outside the window. Dave is almost totally deaf, but she has adjusted very well to life in our Tranquility Room. Visitors would remember to first interact with Dave through visual contact, with touching the second or third step. We believe Dave will do best in a home with only older children and at most one other mellow cat. She should live in a home with no dogs, as her canine experiences did not go well. Dave needs to be an inside only cat where she will not be harmed by threats she cannot hear, such as roaming dogs and speeding cars. Dave will do best in a serene , calm home, with a cozy bed, nutritious food, and maybe a water fountain. Dave enjoys playing with prey-wand toys and spending time with people.

You know how life is when you have a best buddy, they will be there when you are sad, ready to snuggle if you want to snooze, and best of all, reassure you when your world turns upside down. Brother and sister Tony and Annie have been that kind of buddies since birth. In his dream home Tony would welcome both cats and dogs, but most important to join him is lifelong friend, sister, Annie. Tony and Annie were brought to us when their person had gathered a few too many pets. Tony gets along well with both cats and dogs (and people he knows well). Tony is declawed and, as a Senior Cat, his adoption fee is $25. Stop by soon and spend some time getting to know Tony and Annie, perhaps read them a story or two.

Sister and brother Annie and Tony have been that kind of buddies since birth. Annie's dream home has only a couple of cats and maybe one dog, but most important on that list is lifelong friend, brother Tony.
