I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
I'm about to tell you a heart wrenching story that has the potential for a very happy ending! This beautiful cat has lived outside his whole life in the parking lot of a busy apartment complex. A couple who lives there said he was hit by a car when he was a kitten. They said that a former resident took him to the vet, found out he needed his right front leg amputated, and put him back outside because she couldn't afford the procedure. His leg was broken in multiple places causing his paw to permanently curl under him (imagine Captain Hook's arm). His nails were growing into his leg and he had a HUGE infected open sore about the size of a half dollar where the ground wore on his leg. He survived on the streets in this condition for at least two years while everyone living in the apartment complex watched him hobble around and ignored him. As of last week, he is safe. He is warm. He has a full belly. He has received lots of medical care and his leg has been amputated. And he has been given the name "Trooper" because he survived on the streets in this condition for so long. Trooper can NOT be put back outside. Animals do very well with three legs, but it would be quite cruel to ask him to adjust to his new body while on the streets, alone and cold and hungry. He has lived outside his whole life with minimal human contact so he is scared, but he is very brave. He's not used to being picked up or carried so he squirms a lot, but he loves to sit in laps and purrs up a storm, especially if you scratch his bum. He loves to cuddle and watch football! He also likes to take cover in boxes, but with time, we expect that he'll adjust to his new life and be more willing to explore his home. He gets along with other cats and uses the litter box like a gentleman. Trooper's greatest wish is a home for the holidays where his days as an injured street cat can become a very distant memory. If you are interested in meeting or adopting Trooper, please contact his foster, Jill at email@example.com or 419-367-6828.

Come Meet Our Pets...
We have several adoption events a week at various locations. Check out our calendar for details here: http://www.plannedpethood.org/events/ .
Our Adoption Process...
After you decide on the pet you're interested in, our adoption process begins. Please submit an application.
It will be reviewed by one of our volunteers. If certain and critical criteria is met, we will pass your application on to the foster. The foster will then contact you and make arrangements for your family to meet the dog, most likely at one of our many Adoption Events.
A home visit is also required for all of our adoptions. If you are local to the Toledo area, it will be performed by one of our volunteers. If you are long-distance, then we will need to make arrangements with a rescue group in your area. The processing of your application can take several days, so we ask for your patience.
