Why Help Walkin Wheels Get on the Shelf at Walmart

Scooter, a disabled rescue dog turned therapy
dog, peruses the pet aisle in his local Walmart.
Earlier this week, HandicappedPets.com was thrilled to learn that our product, the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair, was selected to compete in the Walmart Get on the Shelf contest.  As the pet industry's only fully adjustable dog wheelchair that is both storage friendly and easily transportable, the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair would be the ideal product addition for Walmart or any other online or in store retailer to carry.

Of course, from our perspective at HandicappedPets.com, we want every person who faces the challenges of a handicapped pet to be able to access a dog wheelchair quickly and easily.  Unfortunately, not all pet owners are aware that Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchairs are available and how to purchase them, and we know that by competing in the Get on the Shelf contest, we will save the lives of countless dogs.  Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchairs are currently available directly from HandicappedPets.com and at dealer locations throughout the world.  We also have a veterinary referral program so that customers can locate a local veterinarian who is both familiar with our products and can further assess their dog's mobility needs.

Our customers often say it best when it comes to emphasizing the importance of educating pet owners and veterinarians about our products.  So, we would like to share the following testimonial that we received recently from Marlene Carter about her 90-pound Labrador named Bear.  Marlene admits to being a reluctant Walmart shopper, and she learned about Walkin' Wheels from her veterinarian Nels David Bernander, DVD at Caring Hands Animal Hospital in Franklin, Tennessee.

"Millions of people shop at Walmart everyday, and it would give much needed exposure to the product.  A lady stopped my husband in the grocery store the other day and inquired about our dog's condition after seeing him lug our 90-pound Labrador outside several times each day to take care of business.  They ended up standing in the store bawling as they swapped stories.  She and her husband had a dog almost identical to ours that they put to sleep a year ago, and they had no idea that such a solution existed.  They now time their daily walk so that they can come and sit in the front yard and love on our dog for 30 minutes or so.  Our veterinarian has mentioned that many people have no idea that there are products our there for disabled dogs.  If only one dog's life is saved or it improves the quality of one dog's life, it is a good thing.  We intend to donate our Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair to our veterinarian when Bear is done with it, so that he can pass it on to someone else.  Any exposure, no matter where it comes from, is good."

Please help us save more dogs lives by voting every day from now until September 2nd for the Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair.  Thank you for your support!
