So, as always, my Thursday posts are dedicated to finding awesome forever homes for those pups and kittens that need some loving!
As I'm sure most of you are aware, this week is national Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet week (whoa, that's a serious mouthful!). As amazing as it is, there are actually people out there that don't find certain dogs and cats desirable! Take for instance: black cats (for goodness sakes people, get over your silly superstition), seniors (they don't need potty training and crazy exercise, like me!), special needs (I have to say, you probably aren't perfect either - I know I'm not!), pitties (don't get me started), and other companion animals that aren't cats or dogs!
99% of rescues and shelters report that they have animals that have been at their facilities for a long time due to their less adoptable qualities! This means that there are thousands of animals out there that are in this "less adoptable" category that need amazing people and homes in their lives too, so why not jump on this party bus and consider adopting a fantabulous animal?!

First up though - an update from last week's Treasure Thursday!

My first less-adoptable, adoptable pet of the week's name is Lexus and comes from Special Needs K9 in Oakland, New Jersey. Special Needs K9 is an awesome organization that is dedicated to the rescue of dogs and other animals with physical, medical and other special needs. They not only assist with the adoption but also with any post-adoption aid that adopters need! :-D
Isn't Lexus beautiful? If you would like to learn more about her, please visit their adoptable's page and scroll down! Special Needs K9 has quite a few pups that need wonderful forever homes, so if you would like to see all of their fantastic available animals, please visit their website or Facebook page and take a look!
My second featured "less-adoptable" adoptable pup, Shy, is from one of my (personal) favorite rescue groups near me! Muttville Senior Dog Rescue is located in San Francisco, California and is dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs. On a local level, Muttville rescues senior dogs and finds them new homes or gives them hospice. On a global level, Muttville provides information about caring for older dogs and support for people who do.
Shy is absolutely stunning and is as friendly as they get, so if you would like to learn more about Shy, please visit her page! Muttville also has a plethora of other fantastic senior pups who are just waiting for you to come and pick them up! So if you would like to see all of their profiles, please visit their available dogs section and scroll through all of their wonderful stories or visit their Facebook page!
My last featured, less-adoptable, adoptable pet's name is Midnight...and as you can see, she is a special Kitty guest on Treasure Thursday! Midnight is being adopted through Black Cat Rescue in Boston, Massachusetts. Did you know that black cats are only half as likely to get adopted as cats of other colors? Well, this is why Black Cat Rescue was created, to assist all of those wonderful dark kitties find perfect forever homes!
Midnight is as pretty as they come and seems like a decently cool cat, so if you would like to learn more about her, please visit her page! Black Cat Rescue also has another few cats who are up for adoption through their website and even more via their Facebook page, so please be sure to check both out!
Thanks as always for stopping by Treasure Thursday!
Please remember when you are looking for your future buddy that there are a lot of wonderful animals out there who need homes that might not look "perfect"...but they are perfect for the right family!!!! Look beyond the physical!
Happy Thursday everyone!
