Below are some of our pets that are considered special needs adoptions. All of them have lots of love to give and we are hoping they find their own special forever homes.
Duff was just a kitten when he was found living in a ditch. He had a terrible eye infection which caused blindness in one eye. Duff is a little shy but enjoys attention and being petted. He likes to play and is curious. Duff would be best suited in a home with another cat for company. An adult home would be ideal but calm older children would be okay. He prefers no dogs.
He has a waived adoption fee of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\$0.
Binou is a four year old neutered male. Binou is deaf and has an auto immune disorder which flares up with stress. Due to his skin irritations his previous owners had him declawed on all four paws. Binou is a sweet boy with a loud voice when he wants attention. Best suited to a home with no small children where he can be the only pet.
Ghost has been a resident at the shelter for almost 7 years. He is a shy cat that lives up to his name! Ghost requires a very quiet, patient home that can give him time to settle in. He would love another cat for company and to help him with his confidence. Ghost has a disease called feline stomatitis, it is an autoimmune disease that causes pain and inflammation in his mouth. Because of this, Ghost had to have most of his teeth removed. He has been healthy and has no problem eating but there is a slight chance that at some time he may have to have some dental work to remove the remaining teeth. At the present time, he is not in pain or discomfort or on any medication.
Ghost has a waived adoption fee of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\$0.
About feline stomatitis
The condition is thought to be autoimmune in nature. In cats with the disease, the immune system overreacts to dental plaque, which triggers an often overwhelming inflammatory response in the tissues of the mouth, throat and even underlying bone. Treatment for advanced cases of feline stomatitis involves full mouth extraction of the teeth. As drastic as this option seems, it’s the only way to provide long-term relief and a return to good health for cats suffering with the disease. Many cats with teeth extractions experience dramatic relief and have a significantly improved quality of life after their teeth – which were the source of all the inflammation, infection and pain — have been removed. While it may seem like a radical move to do teeth extraction, getting rid of those teeth also gets rid of the source of the immune mediated response, the inflammation, the infection, and the pain. In the majority of full-blown cases, it is actually the most humane treatment for feline stomatitis.
