Our commitment to our lifelong friends is to care for them as they care for us. Join the thousands of people in getting the help they need to care for their Handicapped Pets.
When a family member is injured or grows older, the amount of extra care they need changes. Fortunately, advances in medicine and assistive devices help us care for them and make them more comfortable. This holds true when our family includes pets. The deep, loving bond that is created when we choose to care for them evokes lasting warmth.
Pets with Disabilities is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the adoption of dogs and cats with disabilities. The organization serves as a shelter and an adoption placement aid for animals that have been injured through trauma or disabled by illness. Pets with Disabilities provides invaluable support and resources for the families of disabled pets and for shelters attempting to place special-needs animals into loving homes. For the animals it helps place, Pets With Disabilities is a bridge to a better life; for the few that it cannot place, Pets With Disabilities is a lifelong home.
