Just like people, every pet is different. And, just like people, just because a pet has special needs doesn’t mean they can’t live a happy, fulfilling life and bring joy to their friends and family. This series is dedicated to celebrating pets with disabilities and the people who love and care for them.
There was a time when any minor defect would usually mean a dog or cat was immediately put down. But today, there are treatments and devices – even prosthetics – that allow many pets to live well with almost any kind of disability.
If you have or know of someone who has a special needs pet and would like to be featured, please use our contact page and send us a message.
Meanwhile, enjoy these inspiring stories. Please share them with your family and friends. Spread the word that pets with special needs are “Something Special” indeed.
