There are 756 special adoptions currently listed. While every animal is special, these pets truly need a second chance at a happy home. The cases featured below are those that involve animals involved in animal cruelty cases that are currently open to adoption or foster care. Some of these animals have been been held in shelters as evidence for months, sometimes even years, and are finally available for placement.

While some animals may have behavioral issues resulting from an abusive past, most simply require a lot of love and a little patience to bounce back. Be sure to discuss their behavioral and medical needs with the adoption facility to ensure that your home will be a good match*.
