Cupid is a miracle boy who lives his best life despite being born with no eyes. He has no idea he's missing out on anything and sees the world through his other senses. Cupid was rescued by our Director at the age of 6 weeks when he was scheduled to be euthanized because of his 'disability'. Dolly, our namesake, was his seeing eye dog for the first few years of his life. We created this division of our rescue to feature the more difficult cases we take in – the animals that others often deem “unadoptable.”
These are the cats and dogs who perhaps cannot hear, see, or walk without assistance. Maybe they have been badly injured and need a lifeline. Perhaps they have a missing limb or eye. Some have a disease that may shorten their lifespan, or in some cases, the animals are just old. Senior pets are often overlooked because people don’t see them as a good “investment” and want to adopt an animal that will potentially be with the family for several years. Dogs that require wheels to get around can be intimidating to families unfamiliar with their disability. Cats with feline leukemia can happily live many years and are often kept in the company of other FeLV cats.
