Reader Stories: Tell Us About Your Special Needs Dog or Cat

See Published Stories

Animals are very adaptable. Often even more than people realize. Some animals are born this way, some lose their sight, hearing, or even a limb to disease or injury. They will have a small adjustment period, but most pets do just fine.

Please tell us about your special pet and how their 'disability' enables them in other ways and how your life has been enriched, too. Sharing your story helps ease anxieties for those who are facing a similar change for their pet and create awareness for those considering adopting special needs or senior pets.
