Handicapped Pets Need Community Support

24 September 2013

A great opportunity is at hand for Handicapped Pets and it is something the pet loving, animal rescue community needs to get behind and show support! Mark Robinson, the founder of Handicapped Pets Walkin’ Wheels Wheel Chairs, is a finalist for the “Get on the Shelf” contest sponsored by Walmart. The winner will have their product sold on the shelves of the retail giant. If the pet wheel chairs can be sold in a major retailer, it will not only make the product more accessible to pet owners and animal rescues, it will also create much needed awareness that pet owners have a chance to keep their pets longer vs. euthanizing them simply because they lose the use of their legs.  As Robinson says:

“I realized that pets were their family. And for the most part, these animals are happy, healthy, and full of life, they just couldn’t walk any more. This business was built by the dog caretaker community; they told me what they needed. So for me, this wasn’t so much about creating and leading a business, it was about listening. The success of this company will be based on how many dogs’ lives we can save.”

Robinson says they are working on a model for cats!
