We're celebrating our animal friends who are differently abled, and differently beautiful. Those who stand out from the crowd - because that just makes them OUTSTANDING! Whether it's a cat with hydrocephalus, a blind donkey, a rabbit walking with wheels, or a dog with a cleft lip - we want to put the Special into 'Special Needs' and celebrate animals who are wonderful just the way they are! It’s all about acceptance, having fun, celebrating our uniqueness - and SAVING LIVES!
Your entries and donate-to votes will help Road Dogs & Rescue rescue more 'special' dogs, and keep powering towards our goal of a sanctuary and healing centre.

This contest is open to animals that are differently abled, or differently beautiful. The focus is those affected by congenital issues, accidents or age so that we can celebrate animals who are usually more marginalized.
