Disabled Pets – Handicapped Pets and Animals
Special Needs Pets
All animals need special care and love. Disabled pets often require a little extra time and energy, especially as the pet gets older and the disabilities increasingly become worse. This Special Needs Pets site is dedicated to providing helpful resources to help assist you with finding the information that will help you care for your pet with special needs.
We’d also like to begin adding stories on our site to share the obstacles and ultimately the unending love and care that are given to disabled animals.
Special Needs Pets was specifically designed for those who are caring for a pet who:
- has a physical disability
- has a chronic or terminal illness
- is recovering from a serious injury
- is elderly and/or requires hospice care at home
- has emotional and/or behavioral problems
We have resources that will help you to meet the unique challenges that come with living with a special needs pet.
Caring for special needs pets does not have to be a burden – it can be a richly rewarding experience. We’d like to help remove any barriers that discourage people from making the commitment to sharing their lives with special needs animals.
