Petfinder has created a day for cats like ours -- those pets that need to find that special home with a person who understands if they are a little shy, a bit bouncy, or missing a little something (an eye, a leg...). Perhaps they are a senior pet who needs a forever home.
It is Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Day and it is this Wednesday! Please visit their blog post here as well. You should read the comments!
Can you spread the word? The blog post is Facebookable, so it's easy! For those of you with web page or blogs, a shout-out would be appreciated.
They also have a flashy little search widget (see mine in the right column). There is one for you dog people, too.
One of my favorite Special Needs "shelters" is Tabby's Place in New Jersey. If you are in the area, you should visit for a shot of inspiration.
If you have a "special" child, feel free to share his or her story in the comments, or on the comments of the Petfinder blog.
And if you have space in your heart and your home, consider checking out the special needs in your pet using the pink search box at the right. See who is just around the corner from you.
