Resources for Dogs, Cats, Horses, Birds, and other Companion Animals, Assistance Animals, & Special-Needs Animals

Ken Pope, Ph.D., ABPP



Because we have a family of special-needs cats and dogs living in our home, over the years we've located a variety of online resources in such areas as pet emergencies and first aid, adoptions, traveling with cats and dogs, bereavement, health and behavior problems, and so on. This web site provides links to online information and resources for (1) cats, dogs, horses, and other companion animals; (2) special-needs animals; and (3) therapy, guide, hearing, and other service, working, or assistance animals. [For those interested, I also maintain a companion web site containing the photographs and stories some remarkable special-needs cats and dog, which is at]

  3. The section on Therapy, Guide, Hearing, and other Service, Working, or Assistance Animals provides links to online resources for those animals.
