Special needs puppy at Wisconsin Humane Society seeks new home
MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is asking for the public’s help in finding a new home for a puppy with special needs.
Chloe Kay is a sweet 6-month-old Collie mix who was transferred to WHS from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission three weeks ago after she was hit by a car. The accident left her with several fractures in her pelvis. Chloe Kay has gotten lifesaving surgery, including tail amputation, thanks to incredible support from the community.
Chloe Kay is now available for adoption as a “special needs” dog and WHS is hoping to find a guardian looking for a puppy who needs a little extra help.
WHS veterinarians discovered that due to the pelvic fractures, Chloe Kay could not initially control any bowel movements, but there has been some slight improvement. It may continue to improve with time or she may never have complete control. This may result in the need to “diaper” her while in the home, or for her adopter to arrange for special housing accommodations that meet her special needs.
The staff members at WHS adore Chloe Kay and hope to find a loving and committed guardian to take in this sweet pup. If you are interested in adopting, you can find a special needs adoption form at www.wihumane.org and WHS will follow up with you.
