Special Needs Animals

Linda Collins Fund for Special Needs Animals

The Linda Collins Memorial Fund for Special Needs Animals was established in June, 2000 to raise money dedicated to treating the medical problems of special needs animals. Examples of medical needs that will be addressed by this fund are heartworm treatment, surgery, or medicines while the cat or dog is in foster care. As money from this fund is raised and spent, the animals saved will be profiled in our newsletter.
Linda Sue Collins was a HAHS volunteer who developed the first HAHS Web site. She was also active in the adoption events. Linda died on June 23, 1998 as a result of a rafting accident in Colorado. She was a certified registered nurse anesthetist and was survived by her son, Lindy, and her husband, Stephen.
One hundred percent of the money donated to this fund will be used for Special Needs animals.

Featured "Senior" Animals

Older pets are just as loving as young animals, but because most people want "small and cute" puppies and kitten first, millions of perfectly wonderful older animals are euthanized each year.
If you're looking for a good companion, look for an older dog or cat. They have lots of love to give and the admirable qualities that come with maturity.

"With an older pet, you will get a less destructive, more graceful animal, and one that has probably already passed "basic training" - you may not need to housebreak the pet, and it will most likely know to come when called and what "no" means. The animal will be spayed or neutered already. And if you work, a full-grown pet is better able to stay home alone during the day; this is especially true for dogs."

The Lonely Hearts Club

Still Waiting . . .

Animals who enter the Heart of America Humane Society foster program remain in foster care until they are placed for adoption. But with lots of wonderful animals available for adopters to choose from, some foster animals end up waiting longer than others, for various reasons:

  • During kitten and puppy season, adult animals get overlooked when there are so many adorable youngsters to "compete" against.
  • Black cats and dogs generally take longer to place since they are not as popular as other colors.
  • Sometimes, an animal is just "holding out for that perfect home", as it is important to try to match animals to a home environment suitable to their needs and disposition.
  • Some animals come straight from a hectic, tension-filled shelter environment, trying to adjust to the many confusing changes in their life situation, and therefore do not "do well" at noisy on-site adoptions.

Animals gain wonderful advantages by having an extended stay in foster care:

  • Long-term foster animals have enjoyed a loving home environment, are happy, well adjusted and socialized, and have received good vet care, ready to transition into their forever homes and provide years of devoted companionship.
  • Foster parents know these animals as if they were their own, and can tell you all about their personalities, preferences, endearing habits, quirks, etc. - a great help in choosing the right pet for your home!
