Next week Pet Finders is hosting Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet. Sparkle, celebrity cat extraordinaire, is challenging all of us pet bloggers to do something this week to help get the word out about how great senior, disabled, and special needs pets and breeds with bad reps can be, when given a chance in a loving forever home. We know from experience since we have chronically ill cats, senior cats and disabled cats living in our home.
With that in mind we will be featuring a less adoptable dog and cat each day next week starting this Forever Friday with Jack and Chloe of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, NC.
Jack is an purebred 8-week old (you guessed it) Jack Russel Terrier. He was found underneath a car, injured and frightened. He's now safe in a loving foster home, but this poor little guy had been hit by a car when he was on his own, and will need to have his leg amputated. Jack will do just fine on three legs - check out tripawds.com to visit a whole site dedicated to three legged dogs! - and he'll live pain free and happy. Donations are accepted towards his surgery costs which are estimated to be around $600. Thanks! Please help find a forever home for him and if you can donate towards his medical needs - his Chip-in button is on this page.
Chloe and her canine friend Abby (a 5 year old Border Collie/Lab mix) were orphaned when their owner passed away. Chloe is a lovely dilute tortoiseshell girl, around 3-4 years old, and is a 'special needs' kitty because she has been blind since birth. But it hasn't slowed her down and she's such a sweet girl! She has no problem using her litterbox or making her way around a house with just a little time to explore and get her bearings. She loves petting and is chatty when her fostermom walks into the room. Chloe would probably be fine with a calm dog, and possibly a gentle cat. Email Chloe's fostermom Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to meet this awesome girl and give her a second chance at a wonderful life.
Brother Wolf is our only no-kill shelter in town and had been having financial issues but are doing so much better now. Please stop by their web site to see what other great pets can be found there and pass the word on!
