The Pet Matchmaker knows that – just like people – every pet is different. And just because a pet has special needs doesn’t mean they can’t live a happy, fulfilling life and bring joy to their friends and family. (Just like people!) Something Special Pets is a series dedicated to celebrating special needs pets and the people who love and care for them. Be inspired to adopt a pet with disabilities! View all posts.

All About Pets
A key part of our mission is having great information available for you. TPM covers all kinds of companion animals. We have lots of features on dogs and cats. But we also have items on more unusual pets, like stick bugs and chickens. TPM knows that everybody loves their companion animal. It doesn’t matter what species you have. The Pet Matchmaker will bring you all the information you need to: Plan for your pet. Search for your pet. Care for your pet their entire lives. If you’ve already got your purrrfect companion animal, we can still help. Your animal’s needs will change throughout her life. A puppy has different needs than a senior dog. A kitten likes different things than a cat. Even fish change as they age! TPM will offer you resources for every stage of your pet’s life.
So many majestic creatures roam the wilderness. It can be difficult to resist the urge to bring these animals into our homes. But it is crucial to our own health and safety and to the wildlife that we must enjoy them from a distance.
