Gunnar's Wheels is amazing! They have helped with 2 of my foster dogs. The first was a puppy that was born with Spina bifida and could not use his back legs with the help from Gunnar's Wheels he was able play like a normal puppy. The 2nd wheelchair was for my foster Champ who is a distemper survivor and he can not stand or walk on his own. Without Gunnar's Wheels he wouldn't be able to be the dog he is today. Champ has a special quad wheelchair that he uses everyday to get around. I am deeply greatful for Gunnar's Wheels and all their hard work and dedication to all of the differently abled dogs!

Gunnars Wheels is an amazing organization! I contacted them when my 6 year old Boxer dog, LIzzie, was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy. They responded immediately with suggestions to help with her mobility and quality of life and put her on a waiting list for a set of wheels. In less than two months we were fortunate that Lizzie's name made it to the top of the list and they mailed us a brand new set of wheels completely free of charge. Their communication has been prompt, amazing and full of care of compassion. I highly recommend this wonderful nonprofit!

I rescued a puppy who was thrown from a moving truck, she was so infested with fleas and mange. When I brought her in I noticed she was having trouble walking, we did all kinds of tests only to find her spine was messed up. I reached out to Gunnars Wheels who hooked me up with a chair for my girl so she can get around an be a normal dog. They have been such a huge help I don't know what I would have done without their help and kindness.

Gunnar’s wheels is amazing! Compassionate and quick to help those furbabes in real need!
I told my story through tears on email and Jason personally called me to offer a cart and it came in 4 days! I am forever grateful for what his organization did for Mojo and then his brother Gus, inherited the cart the day that Mojo passed!
I donate when ever I can!
Thanks to all Gunnar’s Wheels folks!

Gunnars Wheels work is so needed. As a rescue volunteer I see so many dogs come into rescue that need chairs but funds often aren't there. We focus on their overall health but having that wheelchair and that freedom is such a boost to their overall well-being. Jason is amazing.

I was desperate and scared when my dog became paralyzed. Not only did Gunnar's wheels get my boy a wheelchair, Jason talked to me on the phone for about an hour to answer my questions and help me through the first weeks. I might have put my dog down if I hadn't had so much support.

I help volunteer for Gunnar's Wheels, I do the correspondence via the FB page. I love being part of this nonprofit and see the difference a set of wheels makes to these furbabies and their families. We love to help get them mobile again!
