These are very special folks helping in any way they can to better the quality of life for disabled Animals. Take a look and see if you'd like to help some or even just one.  

Animal Aid Unlimited is a life-changing place for both people and animals in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Founded in 2002, our mission is to rescue and treat the un-owned street animals of Udaipur who have become ill or injured, and through their rescue inspire a community to protect and defend the lives of all animals. Our work focuses on the vital moment when a resident of Udaipur sees an animal who needs help, and stops to help. Taking action is the pivotal experience that can change everything for good. By providing a phone number someone can call and a shelter who will help and save, we are inspiring action in the community. Action that though small at first, maybe just a phone call on our helpline, is the first step for someone on the road of becoming the person that animals desperately need.

Animal Aid Unlimited runs a vital emergency rescue service for street animals—dogs, cows, donkeys, birds, and cats—in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Our rescue team respond to up to 20 calls every day, rescuing animals with fractures, spinal injuries, wounds, skin problems, and other diseases. Rescued animals are brought back to our shelter where they are treated by our medical team and care-givers. We perform emergency surgeries as well as spay/neuter. On any given day we treat around 150 recovering animals in our shelter. For rescued animals who are permanently disabled or too fragile to be returned to their neighborhood, they are welcomed home in Animal Aid’s sanctuary.

Street Animal Rescue

Animal Aid runs a busy helpline and rescue service for injured and ill ownerless street animals in Udaipur. Each year we respond to more than 3,500 calls reporting animal suffering, with cases ranging from a puppy with mange, a cow hit by a car, a dog with a maggot-infested wound, to a case of abuse. Without our rescue service, these animals would receive no care and their suffering would be immeasurable. But after nearly 12 years of popularizing rescue, Udaipur is now one of the best cities in India to be a street animal.


Wound dressing, fluid therapy, antibiotics, pain medication, physical therapy, medicated baths, emergency surgery, and a big dose of love: Every day 150+ animals receive life-saving treatment in Animal Aid’s Hospital. Our medical team of veterinary surgeon and nurses give desperately needed relief to Udaipur’s fallen angels.


When one of the animals we rescue is so badly injured that even after recovering she is too fragile or disabled to ever be able to fend for herself on the streets, it is one of our greatest pleasures to be able to welcome her home to a life-time of protection and care at our Sanctuary. The Animal Aid Sanctuary is home to animals permanently disabled from accidents, blind, very fragile and old animals, and those in need of long-term medical care.

Outreach and Education

Our outreach mission begins with ensuring that people across the city know what to do if they see an animal who needs medical help: call Animal Aid. Before Animal Aid, there was no ambulance or hospital for street animals, and hence no culture of helping them when they were sick or injured. Our outreach team talks in classrooms, religious and social gatherings, malls and on the street to give voice to street animal’s needs.

Please give as much as you can, and give as often as you can. Your tax – deductible donation can save lives this day, this hour, and this minute. Donate Today. Animal Aid Unlimited was set up by the founding family (Erika, Jim and Claire) who also established Animal Aid Charitable Trust in India. Animal Aid Unlimited is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and is the funding arm for Animal Aid Charitable Trust, and is able to provide a tax credit to donors within the USA.

A Letter from HandicappedPets.com Founder    

To All Pet Lovers and Caretakers, 

There was a day when injured pets were "no good anymore." When an animal was hurt, became lame or incontinent, or was for any reason no longer wanted, they were put down. Not Anymore. We are becoming more aware of the sacredness of all life. We are beginning to understand the power of the loving bond that is created when one living thing cares for another. The site is filled with stories of hope and healing as well as the products, services, and support that a caretaker of a handicapped pet needs. People submit their inventions and devices which can be distributed through the site.  Listings of caring vets, animal rehabilitation centers, holistic healers, and animal communicators, and more are all available.

Has your dog trouble moving around then we have got the solution for you:
The wheelchair for dogs

Can this wheelchair help my dog…
Every dog needs exercise on a daily basis to keep in good physical heath. When a dog does not get this exercise, due to (for example) paralysis, arthritis, hip dysplasia or other back-, hip-, hind-leg problems, they will lose not only their physical heath but their mental health will degenerate as well.
When a dog can no longer look forward to the nice things in a dog’s life (like going on long walks, horsing around with other dogs or chasing a thrown ball) it will feel unhappily disabled, in which case even young dogs will start to behave like elderly ones.
With the wheelchair, your disabled dog can do everything a healthy dog can (with the exception of jumping around.) Your dog will stay in good physical and mental shape. Also the upper part of the dog’s body will develop more, which will largely compensate for the disabled rump.
They say one’s eyes are the mirror of the soul and if you look closely at a dog, who has lost his lust for life, you will see, that the eyes have gone dim. The most wonderful thing for us, and what makes it all worthwhile, is the moment a dog realizes his/her disability is no longer an obstacle. The eyes of the dog start to sparkle again.
All animal-loving critics who have seen this phenomenon change their view in an instant.

Pets With Disabilities... 

Pets with Disabilities is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the adoption of dogs and cats with disabilities. The organization serves as a shelter and an adoption placement aid for animals that have been injured through trauma or disabled by illness. Pets with Disabilities provides invaluable support and resources for the families of disabled pets and for shelters attempting to place special-needs animals into loving homes. For the animals it helps place, Pets With Disabilities is a bridge to a better life; for the few that it cannot place, Pets With Disabilities is a lifelong home.

Camp Cocker Rescue



These are doggies we've rescued that are either senior or special needs and unlikely to ever find adoption. We call them "fospice" doggies because it is a hybrid of a foster home and a hospice home (in some cases, the dogs could live another year or two so they are more of a foster situation). Camp Cocker pays for medical bills and the fospice parent pays for food and grooming and other incidentals as needed. It can be a very rewarding experience to take a fospice doggie into your home and the types of people who do best at this are people with care-taking and nurturing tendencies. If you are interested in becoming a fospice parent to the next special needs or senior dog we rescue, please contact us! (or fill out a foster application on our website and state that you specifically are interested in fospice). It is nice for the dogs as they don't have to keep moving around and to that dog, you are their forever home for as long as they have left to live.

Ahimsa Rescue Foundation...

As is often seen in shelters, humane organizations and rescues, a dog with special needs comes along and although it is impractical for the rescue or shelter to fund or provide what that dog needs, sometimes we just have to try.  This page is where we showcase those very dogs. A special need could be a medical condition, old age, an attitude or personality problem or any number of situations that makes a dog either difficult to adopt or in some cases, unadoptable without our intervention. 

Read about our special needs dogs and if you can help in some way, please do as your heart leads.

Blind Cat Rescue...

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc.

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary was started to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they are blind. Rescue is about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about. You cannot place a value on the look of contentment that comes when an animal is clean, exercised, warm, fed and safe for the first time in its life.  Blind cats are cats that just happen to not be able to see.   If your cat has become blind or you are thinking of adopting a blind cat,  please read our " About Us" page it tells a lot about living with blind cats and it has links to other good articles about blind cats. Do you want to help an animal in need but can't adopt?  Then sponsoring is for you!  For as little as $1. per day,  less than the cost of a cup of coffee,  you can help a blind cat.  You will receive a certificate of sponsorship with a photo of an animal you have helped and periodic updates. Looking for the perfect birthday or holiday gift? A sponsorship certificate can be mailed out to the person of your choice!  Your sponsorship donation is tax deductible.

Blind Dogs.Com...

Jackie - is just ONE of the many who have been saved!

Welcome to BlindDogs.net!
Lucy is a Jack Russell Terrier that suddenly went totally blind from something called SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) in September 2004, at just 2 1/2 years old. This web site was created after learning how often blind dogs are put to sleep, that are otherwise perfectly healthy. We hope to make people aware of what happy and fulfilled lives a blind dog can still have!  Offering support and information, we hope to help other dog owners that are adjusting to life with a newly blind dog, or a dog that may slowly be losing their sight and let you know you're not alone!

Mark C. Robinson and Hook, a three-legged handicapped petTo All Pet Lovers and Caretakers,
There was a day when injured pets were "no good anymore." When an animal was hurt, became lame or incontinent, or was for any reason no longer wanted, they were put down. Not Anymore. We are becoming more aware of the sacredness of all life. We are beginning to understand the power of the loving bond that is created when one living thing cares for another. Our pets have become family members and deserve to be loved, respected, and cherished. The purpose and mission of HandicappedPets.com is to help people learn that there are alternatives to euthanasia. An elderly, disabled, or injured pet can often live a high quality life for many years if they get the little help that they need; diapers, a rear-support leash, or a wheelchair.

Special Needs Pets
All animals need special care and love. Disabled pets often require a little extra time and energy, especially as the pet gets older and the disabilities increasingly become worse. This site is dedicated to providing helpful resources to help assist you with finding the information that will help you care for your pet with special needs. We'd also like to begin adding stories on our site to share the obstacles and ultimately the unending love and care that are given to disabled animals. If you would like to submit your story, please submit your stories.

Special Needs Pets was specifically designed for those who are caring for a pet who:

  • has a physical disability
  • has a chronic or terminal illness
  • is recovering from a serious injury
  • is elderly and/or requires hospice care at home
  • has emotional and/or behavioral problems

We have resources that will help you to meet the unique challenges that come with living with a special needs pet. Caring for pets with special needs does not have to be a burden - it can be a richly rewarding experience.  We'd like to help remove any barriers that discourage people from making the commitment to sharing their lives with special needs animals.

HartSong Ranch For Animals With Disabilities...

HartSong Ranch Mission
HartSong Ranch grants permanent sanctuary to animals with disabilities. Most of our residents are blind. All require some kind of specialized care. Our mission is to provide a landscape of quiet and tranquility for the animals that live here – a sanctuary where they can enjoy nature, peace of mind and rejuvenated spirits. We invite you to experience the joy in knowing them. Their stories are inspiring and their lives profoundly worthwhile.

About the Sanctuary

Hartsong Ranch is located on 30 rolling acres in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothill community of Greenwood, California. We are named HartSong Ranch for two reasons. First, our last name is Hart. Second, we are musicians, therefore, “song” in Hartsong. Jim is a drummer and I am a bassist/songwriter. Without question, the animals at the sanctuary inspire many of the melodies for the music we create. (Please check out the HartSong Project page.)

If you'd like to help:
Attend one of our volunteer days to work on special projects or work with the animals. Please call us at 530-887-1263 or email Jim Hart.

These Folks Will Educate you on Deaf Dogs Or You Can Help...

Thousands of deaf dogs are born each year. Many more become deaf as a result of age, illness, trauma or chemical (drug) reactions. All over the world, deaf dogs are routinely destroyed because they are rumored to be brain damaged, aggressive and untrainable, or because their quality of life is believed to be somehow diminished. These myths are perpetuated by many breed and kennel clubs, veterinarians, trainers and other so-called experts. The vast majority of these people have never allowed a deaf dog to live long enough to actually discover if their beliefs have any validity. The mission of the Deaf Dog Education Action Fund is to provide education and funding for the purpose of improving and/or saving the lives of deaf dogs. We are a non-profit organization founded to speak on behalf of and assist in the betterment of life for deaf dogs everywhere.

We can help!

For general questions about deaf dogs, see our Frequently asked questions area.
If you need ideas for training a deaf dog, visit our Training tips area (which includes a section on teaching Signs, and how to use a Vibrating Collar). We also have a Resources area, with recommended books, and more websites to visit. All donations are greatly appreciated. We are volunteer-staffed so contributions are used to pay for outside services, including printing of educational materials and postage, web hosting, transport funding, and all the other expenses related to our mission. Please visit our Membership page to find out more about how you can help.

Lhasa Apso's Happy Homes...


Lhasa Happy Homes believes that every abandoned, owner surrendered and/or shelter dog deserves a second chance at a wonderful life. This includes seniors who have been dumped because they have grown "too old," sick and/or injured dogs in the shelters who have been left to die...and the special needs pups who need extra TLC. Vet bills are frequently very high. Lhasa Happy Homes never wants to be in a position where we cannot take a dog because we don't have the funding. Frequently, we dig into our own pockets to make sure the dogs we care for get the proper treatment...and sometimes, those pockets are pretty shallow. All donations are tax deductable. Thank you for caring...the more you give, the more will live!

Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary... 

We founded the Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary in December 2000, shortly after moving to the ranch permanently. When we first bought the property in the summer of 1998, our dream was to turn these 160 acres of open grassland and cottonwoods into a sanctuary for animals who are disabled. These are the animals who are the least likely to be adopted and the most likely to be euthanized in traditional shelters. The ranch is now home to nearly 80 animals, more than half of them blind. The sanctuary's disabled residents are remarkable animals. They are happy, energetic and loving. Many of our visitors can't believe the animals they see romping with each other and running around are blind or cope with some other kind of handicap. There isn't a single animal here who feels sorry for itself. Each and every one of them loves being alive. That's really the ultimate inspiration for us. Despite their disabilities, they want nothing more than a chance to enjoy life. And that's what they get to do here. They have magazines you can read too.

Support Our Nursery

Recently, the Animal League rescued Libby, a young terrier mix who was abandoned, homeless and very pregnant.

We placed her in the Animal League Nursery Program where she could give birth in a clean, safe environment.

Then, we had a wonderful holiday surprise when Libby gave birth to 5 healthy, chubby pups on Christmas night!

Libby & Puppies

Libby is being a protective new mom, carefully tending to and nursing her pups in the serenity of the Animal League's Nursery.
It is tragic to think that Libby and her puppies could have been euthanized, since many municipal shelters are not equipped to care for pregnant or nursing animals long term.

Your support of the Nursery Program helps ensure that helpless families, like Libby's, get a chance at life.

HART's 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.
