What Makes the SureFit® Calculator the Best Choice?

SureFit® Guarantee: we guarantee the perfect size, or we’ll pay your return shipping costs if an exchange is needed. That way there’s no doubt your pet will get the perfect fit.

We highly recommend using our SureFit® Calculator as it ensures the perfect custom fit for your pet. It requires a couple measurements, but only so we can provide your pet with the very best experience.

We recognize this takes a few minutes of your time, but those minutes are worth the happiness your pet will experience once they try out their wheelchair for the first time. Our wheelchairs have already helped more than 81,000 other pets. Let’s make that 81,001!

Other companies simply have you select a wheelchair based on weight, but that often results in a poor fit. Why? A 30 lb bulldog has a very different body type from a 30 lb corgi, but those companies will provide both with the same wheelchair.

Got Questions?

Over the past 20 years, our pet mobility experts have handled more than 49,000 calls. No matter your question, we've got the answer. Give us a call!

Disabled Opossum Walks Again in Custom Wheelchair

Disabled Opossum Walks Again in Custom Wheelchair

LONDON, KENTUCKY (February 23, 2022) -One and a half year-old opossum Kewpie was born with a genetic defect. The deformity is known as dwarf snub-nosed (opossum). With one back leg shorter than the other, and scoliosis in his spine, Kewpie cannot survive in the wild. He has called the Wilderness Trail Wildlife Center home since he was a baby. All the kids love him, and he is the undisputed star of their educational presentations.


Kewpie’s caretakers knew that he was likely to develop additional health problems as he got older due to his condition. And believe it or not, although he’s not quite two years-old, Kewpie is moving into his senior years. Rescue founder Tonya Poindexter was devastated when suddenly, Kewpie could no longer support his hind weight and dragged his back legs behind him. After a harrowing visit to the veterinarian, Kewpie was diagnosed with osteoporosis in his left leg and hip bone. A painful condition that would make mobility a real challenge for the little opossum. The wildlife sanctuary knew that to get Kewpie up and walking, he would need a wheelchair. This isn’t the first time an animal in their care has needed a set of wheels; years previously, a baby fawn named Clarice used a wheelchair as part of her rehabilitation too!


The Wilderness Trail Wildlife Center quickly reached out to Walkin’ Pets, a pet mobility company in Amherst, NH, that they had worked with before. The Walkin’ Pets team never built a wheelchair for an opossum and was excited to help, offering to donate the tiny custom-made cart. Kewpie is built low to the ground like all opossums, so his wheelchair was customized just for him. The first-ever Walkin’ Wheels opossum wheelchair provides Kewpie with the support he needs to stand up and walk on his own.

According to wildlife center founder Tonya Poindexter, Kewpie is adjusting well to a life on wheels. “Kewpie is still learning how his new wheels work for him. He seems to be figuring out. It’s easier than dragging himself across the floor, and he is ‘Mr. Independent’, so holding him and carrying him is alright, but just a little. He likes to go on his own adventures. Kewpie still has a lot to figure out about his new transportation, but he seems to already be getting the hang of it. He knows that he can get to places much faster and without as much effort.” With his new opossum wheelchair, Kewpie can explore entirely on his own as he works to build up his leg strength. Tonya says, that with his new wheelchair Kewpie, “has his dignity again, he’s still learning, but he’s so happy!”
