Special Needs Animals

Homes for Our Special Needs Animals 


From time to time the Bannock Humane Society fosters animals who have Special Needs. The animal might have a communicable disease such as Feline AIDS or Feline Leukemia (FELV). These diseases are not a problem for humans, but are dangerous in the cat population. Other animals might be elderly and have health issues. These special needs animals want to be loved and cared for just like any other living being.

Please call 208.232.0371 to inquire about adopting a special needs cat or dog.

Beautiful from the Outside In

Feel free to tell me I am handsome. Even though I can’t check myself out in the mirror because I am blind doesn’t shake my confidence!

I am a sweet lover who wants to play, snuggle, and just be a happy go lucky cat. I have grown up with other cats, dogs, pet friendly kids and I learned that I don’t have a disability, I have a superability!

I am great at getting along with everyone, and I make everyone feel better with my Harley-Davidson motor purr and snuggles. I love my foster family, but I think it is time to find a family of my own so that another furbaby who needs extra care can be helped in my foster place.

In PurrSuit of Hope

When someone finally found me, I was abandoned under some pallets behind a building. I was a scrawny little thing who was very scared and hungry.

It worked out though, because I currently live with a loving and safe foster family. But someday, I hope two hearts will meet and the ideal person will give me the gift of a forever family.

I hope to find someone who wants a sweet, indoor kitten who needs some special care, love, and patience. In return, I will give you endless cuddles, a lifetime of purring, and a friend who will always be there for you. You will have a super fun playmate too. I love to play with a lot of different toys. I also enjoy being a certified lap cat.

I have a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This condition causes me to fall easily, so I need to stay inside and off of high places. Additionally, I need to stay away from any dangerous objects that I could trip on. It also causes me to shake sometimes. I enjoy running, but I do lack coordination, so occasionally I can trip and fall.

My clumsiness makes me extra adorable though! I’m not used to dogs, so I would probably do best in a house with nice cats, or be a very spoiled single cat. I like to be held and I can be left alone for periods of time in safe surroundings. My birthday is June 1, 2019, which makes me have a very outgoing personality. (There’s never a dull moment with a Gemini around!) Hope comes from the heart and can bring kindness and love.

That is why Hope is my name. I hope with all of my heart to find a loving and safe forever family who can take care of me. Today, will you be that special someone?
