Formerly known as National Disabled Pets Day, May 3 has been designated as the day to recognize and appreciate pets with any disabilities that may impair them physically, but that do nothing to diminish their capacity for love. Shelters generally have greater difficulty adopting out pets with physical disabilities or special needs, but anyone who’s owned a three-legged cat, or a deaf or blind dog, or any other pet with any other disability will tell you that these animals only love their owners more for giving them homes and taking special care of them. If you’ve been considering adopting a pet, May 3 is the day to visit a shelter and save the life of a specially-abled animal.
