Special Needs Pets for Adoption
Paws for Life rescues the animals who need us most. Sometimes those animals come to us more broken than others. Please consider adopting or fostering a special-needs pet. You will truly save a life!
Special Needs: Wears diapers and loves it!
Our very special girl doesn't even know she's special. She is confident, full of life and absolutely sure that she's no different than the other cats. She plays. She climbs. She cuddles. She eats like a champ. Please help us find the best possible home for sweet little Bran. Here is her story ...
Hi, friends! My name is Bran and I'm a super special girl who was born on May 1, 2021. The rescue isn't quite sure what happened to me before I came to them, but when they got me they found I have some mobility issues that cause me to wobble when I walk. I don't have control of when I go to the bathroom either, but I do very well in my diapers. I can tell you that it doesn't bother me one bit, and the volunteers describe me as confident, fearless and sassy. I am always running around with my foster siblings and I enjoy a good wrestling match. While I can walk, sometimes I get tired and drag my back legs, but I still go up and down stairs, scale cat towers and go wherever I want to go. My care is a little different than other cats, but it's pretty easy and I (aka my foster mom) can walk you through it. On the plus side, you'll never have to clean a litterbox for me. I promise if you take me home, I will have you laughing in no time with my silly antics and we can enjoy so many good snuggles together. Please give me a chance. I have lived with cats and dogs before and would love to be in a multi-animal household! Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $110. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.
Special Needs: Would like a low-key lifestyle for his arthritis due to healed fractures, needs to be the only pet in the home
Hello world! Roji here. I am really excited that my foster mom tells me we can officially start looking for my forever home. In case you haven't seen my story, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a 5-year-old male kitty who was found with a really bad limp. I went right to the vet where unfortunately they found that I had not one, but TWO, broken legs. Can you believe that luck? Those fractures had already healed, so there isn't a lot we can do, but I take some joint supplements and medications that make my life a whole lot easier. It's just some powder you can put in my food. Since I'm so food motivated, it is really easy. Sometimes my joints do hurt a little bit and I can get grumbly, but 99% of the time I'm a total ham that just wants to lay in your lap and be petted and loved on. I enjoy chin scritches and butt scratches, and will really take any affection and attention you want to give me. In fact, I love affection and attention so much that I don't want to share my people with any other animals. I'm a low-key, laid-back guy and I'm not about all that bouncing-off-the-walls fuss. You can usually find me loafing on a bed watching out the window. And, I really love watching TV with you too. I'm great at using my litterbox as well. Overall, if you're looking for a mellow cuddle buddy who just wants to chill with you, I'm your guy! Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.
Special Needs: Prone to UTIs and/or constipation
Hi there, my name is Tadpole and I'm kind of a Big Dill. Ha! See what I did there. 'Cause I'm wearing a pickle costume and I like it. I have TONS of personality in my little semi-broken cat body. I am just over a year old. I am a sweet little girl who is very lucky to be here and able to make the humans laugh with my silliness. I love all the people and all the other kitties. I am absolutely purr-fect in every way, but one. I was a medical mess when rescued in January 2022. A mess. But the good news is that I am doing so well now. I just need a home with experienced cat people, because you have to notice if I start to have a UTI or constipation issue. You just need to pay attention to my personality. I am really good about letting you know when something is "off." I hope someone will give me a chance at finding a loving home. I deserve it and I promise you're gonna fall in love with me instantly. Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.
Special Needs: FIV+ and deaf from previous ear trauma
Hi there! My name is Eggroll. I am a gorgeous girl who was born in 2017. I am friendly and I love to lounge around the house. One of my hobbies is window silling. This is where I sit at various windows and watch the wildlife outside. It's like kitty TV. I will be ready for adoption soon, so I am taking applications now. I am having a spa day before I go home - a needed dental and removal of some ear polyps. As soon as I am all healed up from that, I am ready to go to my new forever family! I am FIV+, but that's just no big deal. All it means is that I need quality care for the rest of my life, but so does every cat. I am no different. I am litterbox trained and looking for love. Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.
Special Needs: FIV+
I'm not really a special-needs cat. I mean, not really. So I am FIV+, big deal! All that means is that I need high quality care for life, but isn't that what every cat needs?
Hello world! My name is Jerry! I am a handsome, shorthaired kitty in need of a loving home for life. I am about 8 years old and full of love. I am friendly and playful. I like to play with toys, but more than anything, I love humans. I enjoy having my chubby cheeks rubbed, my chin scratched, my back petted and I'm so soft and fluffy. I am an expert purrer. It's my forte, a true skill to do it like I do it. When I need head rubs, I will bonk my head into my human to ask for pets. I like to eat wet food, which is good cause I only have five teeth. I use the litter box like a good boy, too. All I want is someone to love, a warm soft place to nap and some toys to play with. I am an easy-going guy who is ecited to be a wonderful family pet. Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $110. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.
I AM IN THE SENIORS FOR SENIORS PROGRAM! This means that my adoption fee is waived for anyone over the age of 65.
