In the life of a cat rescuer or volunteer, there is nothing more rewarding than the moment one of the kitties you helped finds her forever home. As grateful as we are for each and every adoption, the intense joy we experience when one of our “Special Needs” cats goes home is unlike anything else in the world!
A Special Needs cat is one with a disability, advanced age, or chronic illness, who despite having every chance of a full and happy life, is often less desirable to many adopters – or so we thought. With the help of the internet and social media, where the faces of these innocent animals can often be seen, there is a growing awareness of the rewards of owning a Special Needs pet.
In 2014, we hosted a series of Special Needs adoption events at PetSmart in Downingtown, with hopes of finding forever homes for perhaps just one or two of these beloved cats. Some were blind, some had chronic medical conditions, and of course, there were several of our senior cats – all deserving of a second chance at a happy life in a forever home. We posted pictures and stories about each of them, and within a very short period of time, fourteen of our most loving cats found new homes with some very special families!
As we continue through 2015, it is our hope to find homes for more of our very special friends, and we are happy to share the pictures of just a few who are looking for new homes today. Come join us and be a part of something very special – adopt a Special Needs cat today! If you are unable to add a new pet to your household at this time, consider a donation to help us continue to provide excellent veterinary care to those who need it most. We promise your life will never be the same again, and neither will theirs.
