Many of the animals that we rescue have medical problems due to abuse or neglect inflicted by their previous owners.   Sometimes a rescued animal may not have obvious physical problems, but exhibit psychological symptoms such as extreme shyness, aggressiveness, separation anxiety, cringing or cowering when offered the gentle touch of a human hand.

There are also animals that we take in which, after testing and an intital medical assessment by a veterinarian, are discovered to have hidden or age-related health problems such as heartworms, FIV, FeLV, diabetes, arthritis, and other conditions.  Some conditions are treatable, while others are not.

We are committed to saving those animals that are expected to make a full recovery and that are otherwise adoptable. Often, those medical problems result in expenses that are not adequately covered by the adoption fees.  As yet, we have not set an upper limit on the amount of money we are willing to spend on a given animalís care, because we believe that each individual is worth it and deserves a chance to live a high-quality life, free of pain, hunger, neglect and abuse. 

Our ability to help any animal depends on the generosity of persons like yourself. Don't let a furry friend's medical condition or special needs deter you from what could possibly be the greatest decision you'll ever make from your heart.  If you have the patience, compassion, and love to offer a permanent home to one of those special needs pets, please consider adopting them. 

If you are unable to adopt, then, please consider becoming a Guardian Angel and make a donation to assist one of our special needs animals. Please contact us at info@acadianahumane.org or call us at (337) 668-4484.
