Adopt Someone Special

Are you looking to bring a ‘special’ someone into your home?

Many people adopt animals because they want to make a difference in the lives of a homeless pet. Of course, the majority of dogs and cats are adopted fairly quickly. However, there are always some, who for a variety of reasons can be overlooked; some staying in shelters for months or even years.

At Helping Paws, we have a few animals who are ‘special’ and need an exceptional person to love and care for them. Many are just shy, requiring an extra-patient adopter with a quiet household. Others have minor, treatable health issues. A few have some behavioral issues that will require a little extra time and understanding to work through.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." — Anatole France

We feel there is a home for every homeless animal, including the 'special' ones in our care. Are you someone who can open your heart and home to an animal that really needs you? Consider adopting one of these animals.
