Adopting a Disabled Pet

Nakio

Naki’o lost all four paws and the tip of his tail to frostbite when he was just a puppy. After being nursed back to health at an animal rescue center, he met veterinary assistant Christie Pace, who was looking to adopt an animal who needed help. When she saw Naki’o, she knew he was The One.  She adopted him at eight weeks old and immediately launched a fundraiser to get prosthetics for his back legs.  He did so well with the back leg prosthetics that Orthopets, the company that made them, also furnished him front leg prosthetics for free.  Now Naki’o enjoys life to the fullest and can walk, run, play and even swim!  Just look at that big smile! See more of Naki’o on his Facebook page.

This is a story that demonstrates very clearly that there is a loving home for all pets. No pet should ever be euthanized in an animal shelter because the pet has a disability. Rescue – Recycle – Relove.
