If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Many people come to this message board in need of free carts, but only very rarely is there anyone who has a cart to donate. We encourage you to try some of these sources for affordable pet wheelchairs.
There are several places you can get used wheelchairs.
Animal Rehab Canada:
Tail Wagon makes modestly priced wheelchairs:
Dogs to Go makes very affordable wheelchairs that people here have reported on favorably:
Dogs to Go also offers secondhand carts even more cheaply at:
You can find secondhand carts on eBay, however a correct fit is very important and some companies offer wheelchairs through eBay that nobody here would recommend for your pet, so shop wisely. The search words are:
K9 Carts rents wheelchairs by the week, both 2-wheel and 4-wheel styles.
Walkin' Wheels has a rental program.

You can post an ad to buy a wheelchair or search ads of people selling wheelchairs on the HandicappedPets Classified page:
or the new Used Dog Wheelchairs page:
There are a number of patterns and instructions to make a homemade dog wheelchair:
Some cart manufacturers offer a discount for rescue groups or veterinary referrals.
Some organizations may pay for all or part of the cost of a cart, or lend you one when available.
Bosco's List offers loaner carts through http://www.forpawshospice.org:
You could also check with breed rescues in your area.
Veterinary clinics will sometimes lend you a wheelchair if they have the size available.
