Stories of amazing pets who have suffered a handicap or disability or paralysis.
On December 6, 2007 a call came into the Heaven Can Wait Animal Society office about a litter of kittens running loose. Manned with cat traps and a can of tuna we set out to catch the kittens. The goal in my mind was to deliver them to the shelter, socialize them and adopt them into new homes.

My 10 year-old dog, Cody received this doggie puzzle as a Christmas gift. At first he was afraid of it and within a couple of days he loved pulling out ALL of the puzzle pieces to retrieve the treat hidden inside. Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog is a tribute to Cody’s big sister Sophie and a blog for ALL pets with special needs.
