Unlikely Best Friends

I’m always a little surprised when, after I explain that one of my services is to help owners measure and fit dogs for mobility carts, that I get answers like “I’d never do that to a dog.”

Stories like this one, an ad sponsored by the Kleenex brand, show you why some dogs can do very well in a cart – and experience quality of life while also sharing unconditional love.

Chance gets a second chance

Who would have thought that a self-professed ‘every day working man employed at a scrap metal yard’ would be an animal adoption spokesman?  But that’s what’s happened in Alabama after a 5-month old puppy was found alive in a crushed batch of scrap metal.

“I couldn’t believe he was alive at first, then I couldn’t believe that someone would be that cruel,” Anthony Nicholson said.

Now named Chance, a veterinary check has revealed that the puppy has either a displaced or cracked hip.  Nicholson will pay the money for Chance’s surgery if he can’t raise it through fundraising.  His funding campaign is currently half-way to reaching its target.  Interested readers can donate to help Chance by going to Nicholson’s Go Fund Me site here.

“There are too many rescues and other foundations that will help re-home an animal. Don’t throw one away, and that’s basically what this is about,” Nicholson said.
