disabled dog rescue

Walkin’ Pets started in 2001 out of a need to preserve the health and happiness of aging, injured, and disabled pets. Since then, we have partnered with over 300 different rescue organizations and sanctuaries to get these animals struggling with mobility back on their paws to keep them happy and healthy.

At Walkin’ Pets, we strive to make life easier for animals and their caretakers. We know that it can be more challenging to find forever homes for animals with special needs, so we work hand in hand with rescue organizations to ensure that the animals in your care are getting the support and tools that they need to live the highest quality of life possible.

Special needs animals have a lot of love to give, and we can help you to get them moving and smiling once again! Call our Rescue Department directly at 866-578-2926 or contact us for more information.

When young Maltese mix Teddy was found paralyzed and surrendered by his owners in Iran, PAWS New England knew that they needed to jump into action. They acted quickly to bring Teddy to Boston and place him in a foster home where they knew he would get the medical care that he needed. Teddy has since begun to see a neurologist and a canine physical therapist. With the help of his Walkin’ Wheels, Teddy’s medical team believes that he may walk again! Teddy’s foster mom Leila says that there has been a noticeable transformation in Teddy’s demeanor since he received his wheels, “When he got his wheels, he was happier. Teddy doesn’t realize there’s anything different about him, he acts just like any other dog! He deserves to have the same opportunities.” Teddy is on the hunt for his forever home with an active family who will is eager to help him overcome his anxiety and relearn to walk.
