Special Needs Pets
Some of our shelter animals have special needs as a result of illness, injury or behaviour. This shouldn't exclude them from having a second chance. Most of our special needs pets are not housed in the public viewing areas of the shelter. If you can meet the needs of one of these special pets, please drop by for a visit.
Wally and Nellie
Meet Wally and Nellie, two very special felines looking for a special home. They arrived at the shelter as 3 1/2 month old feral kittens, completely unsocialized and terrified. They were discovered by a caring animal lover, living under their front porch, and brought to the shelter. They have been with us for about 8 months now, living in the managers office, away from the hustle and bustle of the shelter. In that time, they have come a long way but will still require some special considerations in adjusting to a home environment. We just recently had them sterilized.
Wally, the grey cat, is much more outgoing than his sister, and is definitely ready to move on to bigger and better things. He is an active, curious male who should adjust with little difficulty, but be prepared to keep him busy! Nellie on the other hand is much more timid than her brother, and may therefore require a little more time to adjust. Once she is comfortable however, she is very sweet and affectionate. She makes a great home office assistant, as long as she gets a belly rub out of it! These two will have to be placed in a quieter home, together for Nellie's benefit, and may eventually adjust to another cat, but dogs are a definite deal breaker.
For more information on Nellie and Wally, please drop by the shelter and ask to meet them, as they are not in the general population.
