Are you thinking it’s time to get a pet? Well, have you considered a special-needs pet? An article in Oregon Live mentioned giving back and getting the best gift of all: a pet that needs extra TLC. These pets don’t often require extra care, but they do require a little extra love.

A pet with a missing limb, blind, deaf, or with a health condition can have a wonderful life and bring a special one of a kind love into your home. All you need to do is make a few little changes and everything will be perfect. The problem is, many people think that an animal that has something out of the ordinary going on will cost more, be more work, or have more problems. That’s not always true.

The article highlights some of the special pets that have found their forever homes. Such as Stevie, a blind cocker spaniel who found a great home in the Portland suburbs. The house has no stairs, wide doorways, and loves his family. He’s loved and is enjoying his life with his mom and dad. There’s also Lily, a pit bull who has allergies and hip issues. With some special food and a good exercise routine, Lily has brought a joy into her owner’s home that can’t be matched.

If you are looking for a pet, consider a special-needs pet… you may find that they fill a special-need in your heart.
