One of the goals of Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog is to share resources with owners of special needs and paralyzed pets. So when I heard about Hailey’s Wheels for Life and their dog wheelchair assistance program, I knew I had to share their story.
In 2012, a feisty West Highland Terrier named Hailey became an Internet sensation after her owners Matt and Jules chronicled her battle against a parasitic disease of the spinal cord called Neosporosis. The couple did everything in their power to make Hailey’s last days, good days. In her honor they created Hailey’s Wheels for Life so that other dogs with neurological problems can have a quality life, like Hailey.
