Special Needs Dogs

We pride ourselves on helping special needs dogs. These are the dogs and puppies that are most at risk in a high kill shelter and are often passed over by other rescue groups. We typically have a minimum of 2 or 3 special needs dogs in our care.

A Special Needs designation can be due to:

Age – Senior dogs have little chance of leaving a pound and yet are wonderful, quiet, gently companions.

Health – A minor health issue often deems a dog unadoptable: we do not believe that any dog is unadoptable.

Pregnancy – shelters are allowed to euthanize late term pregnant dogs. Very few make it to rescue with a happy ending for themselves and their babies. We will accept these dogs into our program when a foster home can commit to their care.
