Doggie Wheelchair Lending Program
We are in desperate need of Doggie Wheelchair donations. This is a fairly new program for us, but the demand already far exceeds the supply we have. We currently have 5 wheelchairs that are being used (4 in the USA and 1 in Turkey!!!). If you purchased a Doggie Wheelchair for your dog and are no longer using it, your donation to Move Mutt is not only going to help many more deserving dogs, it's also tax deductible!
One of the most satisfying programs at Move Mutt is our Wheelchair Lending Program. It all started with the donation of a Dewey Doggie Wheelchair and a beautiful angel named Kayla See her story at:
In October of 2010, Move Mutt was blessed with the donation of a Dewey's Wheelchair for Dogs, valued at over $400. We offered this piece of equipment for "loan" to any needy dog in our area whose family's budget may not otherwise allow for this very pricey piece of equipment. Kayla's story moved us so much that we decided to add a Doggie Wheelchair Lending Program to the core programs Move Mutt offers.
We have since received very generous donations of additional chairs, made by a variety of manufacturers, and have now been able to help several wonderful dogs and families, with the hopes of many, many more to come.
To date, the wheelchairs we've received have all been for larger dogs and we're thrilled to be able to match every single one! We receive many more requests for small dog wheelchairs and are sad to have to turn these requests down. However, we hope that as our program becomes more well known, we will start getting small dog wheelchairs and be able to help as many of these angels as possible.
If you have a wheelchair you would like to donate to Move Mutt, please let us know! Also, any financial donations you make go to refurbish, match, place and ship our donated chairs.
