Courtney Dunning rescued her handicapped dog Lucy from the streets of Puerto Rico. Lucy arrived with an old, duct-taped dog wheelchair that barely fit well enough for her to get around; she was extremely uncomfortable and frequently fell out of it.
Mark C. Robinson, president and founder of HandicappedPets.com, had just released his newest product – the Walkin’ Wheels for Handicapped Pets – the pet industry’s first fully adjustable dog wheelchair that can be easily re-sized in length, width and height to accommodate any size dog weighing between twenty and two-hundred pounds.
The Walkin’ Wheels for Handicapped Pets movie tells the story of how Lucy is living a healthy, happy, active life and how she and Courtney have become advocates for handicapped pets. See how this remarkable invention is transforming mobility and rehabilitation for disabled animals.
Visit www.DogWheelchairMovie.com and watch as Lucy and her friends Nina and Denali are enjoying their Walkin’ Wheels for Handicapped Pets which offers all of the top five qualities every pet owner wants in a dog wheelchair - adjustability, comfort, convenience, durability and style.
Another Handicapped Pets Foundation Success Story!
Thanks to our wonderful community of supporters, the Handicapped Pets Foundation is pleased to share the success of another fundraising campaign. A special thanks to our Facebook friends and members of all of our social networking sites for spreading the word about our pets in need.
Miracle's family asked us to share the following message of gratitude to our supporters of the Handicapped Pets Foundation:
"We have received Miracle's Walkin' Wheels. Attached is a photo of her very first time with her new freedom! As I write this, she has now been in her chair 4 times and is starting to explore the house. She is fighting a battle with herself not to bunny hop, but she has reverse down pat," Miracle's family wrote about her first day.
"We never would have been able to do this without the wonderful help from the Handicapped Pets Foundation and the wonderful people who gave so Miracle could walk again. What a blessing. I will send more photos in the coming weeks. Well, as soon as the rain lets up and we can walk not swim outside. Thank you again everyone for your support."
