Who We Are

Joyce Darrell and her husband Michael Dickerson founded the Pets with Disabilities organization. The story of the dogs, Duke and Misty has reached thousands of people worldwide and has helped raise awareness about disabled pets. The organization and website have provided support and information to people whose pets suffer from birth defects or have become disabled due to illness or injury. Pets with Disabilities has been instrumental in helping shelters place their disabled animals into loving and caring homes. We have given a voice and hope for disabled animals! Pets with Disabilities is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping and promoting the adoption of physically disabled animals into great homes. All donations are tax deductible to the extent permissible by law. Contact your tax adviser.
