This month at the Sanctuary


Love is Special 2015

When it comes to pets, love is never ordinary or predictable. Love is blind. Or sometimes deaf. Maybe it’s even a little wobbly. In other words, love is special. So March 1 – 31, adoption fees for featured dogs, cats, and rabbits with special needs* here at the Sanctuary are waived.

Because being special doesn’t matter to them. Being loved does. And caring for a pet with special needs may take less time or money than you think. Plus, we’re providing free flights** home for featured special needs dogs and cats who are joining their new families in other parts of the country. 

For more information, please email us at adoptions@bestfriends.org or call (435)644-2001 ext. 4223.

Not sure what special needs looks like? Scroll down to see the faces and read the stories of our featured adoptable dogs, cats, and rabbits with special needs.

*Special needs includes deaf, blind, mobility challenged, FIV & FeLV positive, and those that require a special diet or daily medications/treatments.

**For the safety of the animals, we only ship to major airports so some folks may need to drive farther to get their new pet.
