Disabled Dogs for Adoption

Jul 09, 2010

More

There are many pets in the world that are disabled and need loving homes.  Thanks to places like PetswithDisabilities.org, many of these animals with blindness, amputation, paralysis, or other various conditions get a second chance.  These animals are usually difficult to find homes for as they require extra care, time, and sometimes money.  It takes a strong person with a good heart to live up to the challenge, but the love and affection received from these animals is often much more rewarding.  Are you this person?

These animals are available for adoption nearly all over the United States.

    Hello, I am very interested in Monty if he is still available, I rescued a German Shepherd from GSR of Tulsa in Feb & she has been a true blessing. My husband & I would love to help give another dog a loving home. Any info would be helpful on him, as we have a 7yr old son also. Thanks so much, Sheri

    I recently lost my staffie lab mix Bailey. She had a spinal disorder and was in a dog kart for the last yr. I miss her more than anything and know it takes a lot to care for these special angels. She changed my life and I would love to have another pwd to care for. She impacted my life so much all I want to do is care for the pups that others are unable to.

    I have a Beagle mix dog who woke up paralized, The vets said she would never walk again. I love her so much and she means so much to me. But Im a triple full time student and working all the time and I can not give her the attention she so much needs. I would love if I could find somebody around my area to have her so I can come see her!

    Oliver is one of the most sweet and friendly dog you will ever meet. He is very social and will proudly roll up to any person or animal and say “hi.” Oliver had a back surgery that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Oliver is five years old, and he is very grateful to be alive. He does not let his disability hold him back and he always has an enthusiastic and cheerful disposition. Definitely not shy, he loves being around people, sitting on laps and having his ears scratched. His favorite activity is being outside and running around in his wheelchair. Oliver wants to know if Pets with Disabilities is interested in take care of him because my 22 years old daughter his owner could no longer care for him due to their work schedule changes. Oliver does well with other dogs and cats. He is neutered and current on all his shots. He also has his wheelchair and an stroller to take him out to the mall.
    We are located at south san Jose and we wonder what is the procedure to register Oliver in your wonderful program., to help him to find a new family.

    Thanks for your information, support and God bless you for your great mission.

    I would love to open up my home to a dog with either a missing limb or blind. I live in Texas. Do you know of any animals like that in need in my area?

    To Mellisa Smith, I have a dog(Pitt Mix or full blood) who was hit by a car. I know the “Pitt” name is contriversial, but this dog has been nothing but sweet with me. He does however growl at the food bowl when my Labs are neer him, altough I don’t believe he would bite them, but feel obligated to disclose all the information I can about him . I believe he would make a wonderful one dog pet. I am struggling with the thought of putting him down. If you are interested please reply soon. I must either have his front left leg amputated or regretfully put him to sleep. He is approximately one year old. I am willing to absorb the cost of medical treatment to see him go to a good home. I rescued him fom the highway and have grown fond of him, but already have three dogs and two cats and not enough room. I am in Texas and are willing to travel with him to his new home or meeting place somewhere in between. Whatever arraingments you need. You may call me @ 903 707 5112. Thank you, Andy Grush

    I tried for months not to write this, but I’m looking to re-home my 3 1/2 year old French bulldog, Oliver. Oliver had spinal trauma last year and is now in a wheelchair as his rear hips simply do not work any longer. My wife and I are expecting our first baby and feel that Oliver deserves to go someone that will continue to give him all the love we do, but also give him the time he deserves. It breaks my heart to write this, but I won’t put him in a shelter and I won’t put him down. There’s too much dog left in this guy to give up on him… If anyone out there has the room for the happiest mutt on wheels – please reach out to me ASAP! We live in NJ but would consider any option to help him…
    Thanks, Todd

      Hi Shawna, thanks for reading the AMS Vans Blog. Because we reported on this story a while back, we are not sure of the status of those two cuties today. However, you can see a list of their currently available dogs on the Pets With Disabilities website by visiting their adoptions page at http://www.petswithdisabilities.org/adopt.html — or you can contact them directly by phone at 443-624-9270 or by e-mail at petswithdisabilities@comcast.net and they would love to assist you. Hope that helps you find some new wonderfully worthy additions to your family!

    I have a boxer/hound mix approximately three years old. His name is Mumbles and I pulled him at the last minute from a gassing shelter in Ohio. We believe he was either hit by a car, stepped on or somehow squished, crushing his right hind leg and leaving him unable to walk correctly and control his urination. He does great in a belly band and loves playing outside. This is the happiest dog you will ever meet – he has so much life inside of him. My husband is in the AF and we have since moved to New Mexico. We have nine dogs including him and he is not getting the care/time he needs. I am happy to answer any questions about him. He would do best in a family with older kids and no cats. He is wonderful dog – just needs someone with patience and a huge heart. My email is Linz9982@aol.com if you have any interest.
