This is the story of a dog left abandoned to die on the side of a road and the great people who saved her life. (on the right) Ninia after surgery, her New Wheelchair with Dick and the heroic team at the Fletcher's Vet Clinic in Arkansas that saved her life!
UPDATE: Thank you for your support! Champ was approved and received a dog wheelchair.
Champ is 14 years old and living with hip dysplasia, a condition that has limited the use of his hind legs, thus affecting his quality of life. Champ has been a loyal and long- time companion to his owner who has now turned to the Handicapped Pets Foundation for assistance. Currently unemployed and receiving food stamps, she is unable to provide Champ with the wheelchair he needs to become mobile again.
Lucy, a cute black dog with a bright blue tongue, was born in Puerto Rico. Hit by a car and left by the side of the road to die, she was rescued by the Second Chance Animal Rescue and, after almost giving up hope, by a woman in Peterborough, NH. In October 2008 she was named "HandicappedPets.com Official Mascot" and given a new Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair.
