SPECIAL Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week edition
In honor of Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week, this week you'll receive 20% off adoption fees for senior, special needs, and behaviorally challenged animals. Plus take 20% off at DCSPCA Thrift when you adopt a less adoptable pet.
Senior, special needs, and behaviorally challenged animals are often overlooked at the shelter, but these amazing animals will return your love 100-fold.
We encourage you to fill out an application before you come in to begin the adoption process.
Then visit the shelter to meet your newest furry family member!
Here are just a few of the animals at DCSPCA who are having a harder time finding homes because of some easy-to-overcome challenges.
They won’t let their imperfections stop them from loving you; will you let them stop you from loving them?
Britzy is looking for a human friend to help her feel safe and secure. She came from a home where she only knew other cats, but if she is given sufficient love and attention, she'll learn to trust and love right back. Britzy would do well with another cat who could be a social bridge to humans for her.
Playful Lanaya is full of surprises! One moment she might be rubbing against your legs, and the next she’s chasing a dust particle through the air. Because she has symptoms of kidney disease, Lanaya needs to stay on a special diet. She may also be visually impaired.
Diamond & Diva
These inseparable senior sisters have grown old together. They just want a forever home where they can enjoy their golden years with each other. The beautiful, sweet, laidback siblings are looking for a human BFF who will provide them with comfy places to lounge and a fair amount of catnip. In return, they'll give you their unconditional love.
Super-affectionate and friendly, Mickey loves people, but an attack by another animal left him with a great fear of all other animals. At only 4 ½ years old, he has already spent more than a year at the shelter. We don’t know why because he’s such an amazing guy. Will you be the one to give him a chance at a forever home?
Delilah is a happy go-lucky sweetheart. A special needs senior dog, being blind never gets in the way of her spirited attitude. If you have time to help a loving senior get accustomed to her surroundings, delightful Delilah is for you.
