Special Needs

A Special Needs animal is any animal at CHS that can especially benefit from life away from the shelter, either because of age, temperament or minor medical or behavioral conditions.   Special needs animals are available for a waived or discounted adoption fee. They are the animals that stand the most to gain by going home with a loving new family like yours!

If you have any questions about the needs of any specific animal, please call (207) 725-5051 ext. 10.
