Review for Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue NFP, Naperville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We were looking for a puppy for about 4 months but couldn’t find anything that jumped out at us. I saw Petey’s profile about 6 times but didn’t want a dog that big or over 9 months old so my granddaughter could bond and grow with it. One day I decided to read his profile that was quite lengthy buy Susan wrote it from a first person narrative and I knew immediately that I’d found my forever dog. I learned that he’d been hit by a car at 2 months old and eventually had to have his left rear leg amputated and I had just had my left leg amputated so I knew we could rehab together. Petty had also spent 7 months of his life in a veterinarian kennel so was not as emotionally mature as his age. When I spoke with Susan she said her family had been fostering Peter to make sure he recovered and thrived and when I met him and Susan and Scott I was totally shocked at Petey’s condition. He was getting around on 3 legs and was emotionally in great shape. The love he showed for them and they for him was stunning considering they’d only had him a few months. They even bought a swimming pool just for his physical therapy and they have pictures of it on their website. They did a phenomenal job with Petey and told us they weren’t supposed to get Petey when they went to Tennnessee but after seeing him they didn’t think he’d get adopted and wanted him to have a good life.
Angels on Wheels and Susan and Scott are not only a great rescue they’re a rescue with a heart. When they dropped Petey off and came to visit a few months later there were tears in their eyes when they left him. They left us 2 dog beds to borrow for him so he’d be comfortable and have his favorite smells during the transition. After adopting several cats and dogs over my life I will never do so again from anyplace other then Angels on Wheels because of their care and genuine love and concern they have for all animals make me feel comfortable with them since we are the same way. If you want to adopt a special needs furr baby or just a healthy forever furr baby this is the place to go my wife and I tell everybody about them in the hopes they’ll call them when they’re ready to adopt. Susan also left a great care package/starter kit when she left Petey here just to make sure we had everything we needed until we got to the pet store.
