The Humane Society of Harford County often has animals that get overlooked because of their special need – even though a missing leg, blindness, insulin-dependence or emotional scars make them no less loving or lovable. In a survey conducted by Petfinder, it was found that these pets often wait four times longer than average to be adopted – a long time spent without a family, security and unconditional love, and all due to reasons beyond the animal’s control. For this reason, we have developed a few special programs to help these animals find great homes and loving caretakers.
