Retired Guide Dog Needs Wheelchair

Eve, who is almost 80 years old, has raised 26 puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind over the course of her volunteer career. Recently, one of the puppies that Eve raised - a beautiful German shepherd named Dot - had to retire after successfully serving as a guide dog for over 7 years. Eve did not hesitate to adopt Dot and offer her a comfortable retirement.

Dot was forced into early retirement because of her rear leg paralysis. She is in desperate need of a dog wheelchair that will significantly improve the quality of her retirement years. Dot currently drags herself around to play in the yard with the other dogs. Eve is struggling to support Dot's rear legs on brief walks. To watch a brief video of Dot, click here.

Please consider making a donation to support the Handicapped Pets Foundation in providing a wheelchair for Dot. A very generous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar the first $200 contributed towards Dot's new wheels! Make your contribution count twice!

You may make a contribution online or you may mail a check to Handicapped Pets Foundation, 14 Veterans Road, #22, Amherst, NH 03031. Please reference "Dot" in the purpose line of the online form and in all correspondence by mail. Thank you in advance for your support of Dot and the Handicapped Pets Foundation.
