Special Resources for Special Needs Pets πŸ› οΈ

May 3 is National Specially-Abled Pets Day. It’s a day to celebrate and educate the public about disabled pets. These special needs pets can be a challenge to care for. But loving pet parents know that the rewards for patience and understanding, outweigh the work.

Rescue and shelter animals include older and special needs animals. These animals have challenges related to behavioral, physical, or a chronic illness (diabetes, FIV, arthritis). Special needs pet parents already know that their pets are not left overs, imperfect or can’t be saved. Their pets just need a little extra care and patience.
