Of course, neither of these options provided a solution that was both time and cost effective for the owner or the dog. Waiting until a dog was fully grown before investing in a custom made wheelchair meant losing the opportunity for him or her to exercise and/or to possibly regain its mobility sooner. Purchasing several different sizes of wheelchairs while the dog was still growing was extremely expensive, and it required a lot of guesswork with respect to rate of growth and determining when was the best time to order another custom made wheelchair.

Recently, we had the opportunity to provide a Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair for a young dog that was rescued by the Georgia Humane Society. The flat coated retriever named Beauty was only approximately six months old when she was found after being hit by a car in March 2011. HandicappedPets.com offered a rescue discount towards the purchase of Beauty's Walkin' Wheels and shared her story with its customers and followers on our social networks. Fans of HandicappedPets.com and the Georgia Humane Society generously contributed towards the cost of Beauty's surgery and wheelchair. Since it was believed that Beauty would ultimately recover her mobility following surgery and rehabilitation, the rescue organization wanted a dog wheelchair that could be used to aid in her recovery and then also be available to assist future dogs in need.
