HART's Special Needs Pets

Special Needs Pets

HART often rescues dogs or cats that are in desperate need of medical care.  Many of the dogs and cats will need to be housed for several weeks before they can appear on the web pages and be adopted.  The veterinary care is expensive and we must rely on your donations to cover the costs.

special donation or sponsorship to help with some of these costs would mean a lot to one of these "special" guys - and to HART.  Or maybe you can help in another way.  Do you have some free time?  Would you be willing to foster a special dog or cat and gain the satisfaction of nursing him/her back to health?  Or maybe you are available to transport them to and from vet visits.  These are all wonderful animals looking for a little extra help.

These Special Needs pets are currently under HART's care

Min Twins
This adorable special needs pair has everyone that meets them falling in love with them. Miss Maggie is so sweet and friendly. She loves to explore and enjoys attention, cuddles and love from humans. What strangers?? Everyone is her best bud! Mr Magoo came in with Miss Maggie and he is blind and mostly deaf, for this reason we thinks its important that he stay with Miss Maggie who has been his constant. Despite decreased senses he still gets very excited for his meal time and loves getting attention and pets from people. He would love nothing more then to be a lap dog and or be carried around like the little prince he is.

Bindi was born with cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). CH kitties have a smaller cerebellum, but their condition is not painful nor contagious. Their balance and coordination is affected in that they fall over a bit when they walk, and their heads bobble. BUT Bindi is a Rock Star!! She is a super sweet and loving kitty! She will climb up your bed and plop herself onto your chest while purring and basking in pets. Bindi has mild cerebellar hyperplasia. That does not stop her from being the most loving and giving kitty, who gets around beautifully, even climbing stairs. Bindi is independent, loves to explore, is able to eat on her own and is completely litter trained. You would be hard pressed to find more loving, playful and snuggling kitty! She is a total purr baby. Her indomitable spirit has her living life to the fullest. The perfect home would be carpeted to help her walk. She benefits from a raised bowl for eating and drinking. There is really no difference in her care compared to the other cats in their foster home. They are all love and joy!! We'll be happy to go through any special requirements should you wish to adopt. We encourage you to learn all about CH prior to applying Here is more info on cerrebellar hypoplasia

Meet "Rumple"! This beautiful cat was found outside as a stray, covered in fleas and having had to defend herself against predators. She is a tailless Manx breed, which are known to be smart, very affectionate, to get along with children, and very loyal. Rumple's foster mom agrees with this...she is followed everywhere when Rumple is not basking in the sun or sitting on the couch or her lap. Rumple loves to just hang with her people, explore and play, take naps, watch squirrels...well, she IS a happy cat!

Rumple has moderate Manx Syndrome, in which a few bones in her lower spine are missing along with her tail. It gives her a unique walking gait and adds to her charm. She has minor incontinence, which her foster says does not slow her down or cause much mess. Come meet this special girl!

Rumple is available for adoption. Click here for more information.
