"Special needs" dogs and cats may have medical issues that require special attention, like administering medicine. They may need a special diet. They may have physical infirmities, like vision impairments. They may just be elderly or, in the case of some cats, they may be shy due to a lack of early socialization. All need loving homes, though! Some are in foster homes and are seeking loving forever homes; others are seeking foster or forever homes.
Oftentimes, an animal's "special needs" are not all that daunting, so please don't be deterred by the terminology! Contact the MaxFund office, and we'll be happy to let you know what the scope of their needs is. For those dogs and cats needing foster homes, medical care, medications, and prescription diet food will be provided by the MaxFund Wellness Center.
