Special Needs

When adopting a pet, please consider adopting an adult pet, a black pet or a pet with special needs.These pets are the first to be abandoned and the last to be adopted.

During the summer months, hundreds of kittens and puppies are born that make it almost impossible for homeless adults to get adopted.They are just too cute and too hard to compete with, but before you adopt that cute kitten or puppy, consider this...

Reasons to Adopt an Older Pet (or full grown)

  1. These pets are already housebroken or litter trained. All the work of housebreaking has already been done for you.
  2. Its personality is already developed and what you see is what you get. With puppies and kittens what you really see is playfulness and they outgrow that.
  3. Adult pets are less expensive since you don't have to give them kitten or puppy boosters. These shots are already done for you. Adults are less likely to be sickly the first few months in your home because they have stronger immune systems than kittens and puppies.
  4. There is no question as to how big it will get. It's already full grown! Adopt a 15 pound puppy and watch it grow to 100 pounds!!! Hope you are prepared.
  5. Adults are already settled and calmer. They are less likely to chew since they are no longer teething. Adult cats are less likely to climb your curtains or pounce on your feet when you are asleep.
  6. Adult cats and dogs are SOOO grateful to get a second chance. Many were once house pets and are homeless through no fault of their own. Reasons people give them up include: allergies, having babies, moving, and losing jobs.
  7. You would be a REALLY GOOD Samaritan if you gave an overlooked adult pet a home.

Why are black cats and dogs often overlooked?

  1. They are often overlooked at shelters because people tend to be attracted to more colorful pets that stand out especially at shelters with poor lighting.
  2. People are superstitious and are afraid of bad luck if they have a black pet. The black cat has long been associated with evil. Don't stereotype a black pet! Get to know it and give it a chance. Many M
  3. Black pets are more common since black is a dominant gene that has been passed on. Sheer statistics dictate that there are MORE black cats and dogs to be adopted. Adopters are drawn to unique pets, not common ones. They tend to judge a book by its cover, and don't take the time to get to know its personality.
  4. Black pets tend to take bad pictures (due to lighting again) so are often overlooked when the media comes to take pictures of homeless animals to promote adoptions. Instead, colorful pets are more likely to be promoted.

Here are Some of Our Special Needs Animals

My name is Belle and I am a vision impaired, lab/pit mix.  I am about 5 years old and I do well with cats and dogs, but need a home without kids and with a stable, consistent routine. I am housebroken, easy and low energy. I like to sleep alot and carry around balls and squeaky toys. I will require some time to warm up to you since I had a rough start.

DOGS UNDERGOING HEARTWORM TREATMENT 

At any given time Adopt an Angel is putting a dog through a heartworm treatment.  Heartwoms are treatable, but it is expensive.  Each treatment costs at least $250 and can be more depending on the weight of the dog.  Fortunately, we have a volunteer vet who does the treatment at cost, but at $250 a dog it adds up when you do as many as we do. Animal Shelters call us when they have one returned with heartworms so that we can help.  So far, in October of 2014 we have done over 40 heartworm treatments.  You can help us tremendously by donating towards this major, unexpected expense.
