Special Needs Adoptable Animals

They are not for everyone, but one of these animals might be the perfect companion for you. Certain animals need a home that can provide a little special care and extra time, but they are no less deserving. Some of the animals at Lakeland Animal Shelter might be labeled as "unadoptable" in other facilities, but we hold a special place in our hearts for the Special Needs Adoptable Animals. And we think you might, too.

Is a Special Needs Friend for Me?

Special Needs Adoptable Animals come in all shapes, sizes, and species. And they're not for everyone. While their needs may vary, all of them require some kind of extra effort, such as:

  • Help getting around
  • Medical treatments
  • Patience
  • Special routines
  • A home that has no children or other pets

They make wonderful pets for the right people. If you think one of these special friends might be a fit for your household, please complete a dog adopter or cat adopter profile.
