    Hello,

    I’ve been doing dachshund rescue for a while and have a houseful. Other than one being blind and having a seizure problem, they’re all doing pretty good. The blind one did have an issue with a back problem a while back, but with medication and rest he healed.

    I had a paralyzed chihuahua that passed away last year. She was the victim on an accident where someone picked her up, dropped her, tripped, and fell on her. I was told to put her to sleep by the first vet I took her to, but I didn’t have the heart to do it. I took her to a specialist who could do nothing to help her, but he said that as long as I was willing to care for her, there was no reason to put her down. She lived for 6 years.

    I got her a cart, and it’s adjustable. She didn’t use it often, as she preferred to be without it. It was mainly used just to take her on several walks. I donated it to someone last year, but their dog grew out of it within a few weeks, and got it back. It’s still in very good condition.

    I’m on disability, and have very little income. It’s all I can do to make ends meet and take care of the dogs I have, so unfortunately, I can’t afford to donate any money at this time. However, if you think you could find some use for my cart, I would be glad to donate it. I’ve wondered if it would fit a dachshund since their legs are shorter than other dogs, however, it might possibly work with the adjustments that could be made, or it could be used for parts to construct another one. It wasn’t a cheap cart, by any means, but I can’t see it just sitting here when it can be used by another dog that could use it. I thought of keeping it around, ‘just in case’, but if the time ever comes where I may need another one, I can deal with it at that time. Here is the place that I purchased it from, if you’d like to take a look at it. It looks pretty much like this one here and it’s for rear support. Please feel free to email me and let me know.

    Thanks!

  19. Arnold McKay says:

    Please give me the website or address of the store or manufacturer that sells the doggie wheelchairs. I would like to buy the actual wheelchair and give it to the owner, not a toy or T-shirt, where a small percentage of the sale goes toward the purchase of a wheelchair.

    Thank you.

    • Dear Arnold,
      How kind of you to purchase a wheelchair directly and give to owner. Just an FYI that if you make a direct monetary donation to The Frankie Wheelchair Fund (instead of purchasing a t-shirt with portion of profit going to the fund like you said) 100% of your donation goes to the fund: http://nationalwalknrolldogday.com/donate-to-the-frankie-wheelchair-fund/
      Or if you wish to make a direct donation to wheelchair manufacturer, we work with and use Eddie’s Wheels – http://www.edddieswheels.com
      Whatever you decide, we thank you for your generosity for helping a paralyzed dog in need. Bless you! -Barbara Techel, founder of National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day & The Frankie Wheelchair Fund
