Financial Help and Dog Cart Programs
Red Flyer, The Handicapped Pets Community – This is an organization run by a wonderful man named Harlan Weikle. Red Flyer accepts used wheelchair donations, refurbishes them and loans them at no charge to families of handicapped pets in need. Their motto is, “No pet should be alone or without the gift of mobility.”
Mango on a Mission – Mango is Cairn terrier who was found on the side of a road with a broken back. She was adopted by disabled Army veteran Judy Walter and the rest is history as they now help paralyzed dogs in need of wheelchairs.
Rescued Rollers – They supply low-cost pet wheelchairs to animal rescue organizations, shelters, individuals and those who otherwise cannot afford them by refurbishing wheelchairs that are donated by private owners in the hopes of giving another dog the freedom of mobility, or by purchasing wheelchairs for these dogs in need through the generosity of our donors.
Gunnar’s Wheels – Assist owners in providing mobility options to their pets. Gunnar’s Wheels Foundation is a loaner program and carts may be used for the duration they are needed, and then returned to Gunnar’s Wheels Foundation to be refurbished and matched with the next pet in need.
Hailey’s Wheels for Life – Hailey’s Wheels For Life is a not for profit entity, providing subsidized wheelchairs to rescue groups and those owners in need of financial assistance. The purpose is to encourage an alternative to euthanasia and to prolong the life of an otherwise healthy dog. The outcome is to bring the joy to owners and their dog when those first wheels are turned and to encourage sustained mobility.
CorgiAid Cart Program– CorgiAid’s Cart Program is open to all corgis and corgi mixes, whether owned or in rescue. We do not specifically require financial need, and there may be a cart available that would go unused otherwise, but we do encourage those who can to buy a cart. See Cart Purchases below for more information.
