Bonded Pairs. Senior pets. Special needs animals. Cats with three legs, like our handsome boy Slick (pictured below). Many factors can make a pet seem "less adoptable," or cause an animal to be overlooked by potential adopters in the shelter environment. To raise awareness and help promote these wonderful, albeit often overlooked, animals, Petfinder has designated September 17–23 as "Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week."
September 17–23, the following PAWS animals will have reduced adoption fees:
Boo Boo: This gentle lady has a lot of spunk left in her golden years.
Eddie: This three-year-old Pit Bull gets along with other dogs both big and small!
Hogan: This nine-year-old (but young-at-heart) guy still has lots of energy.
Companion animals make wonderful additions to any family, and these six cats and dogs would be no exception. They may be unique, but that's what makes them special.
"Less adoptable"? We think not.
