Our mission at Rescued Rollers is three-fold:
Supply free or low-cost pet wheelchairs to animal rescue organizations, shelters, individuals and those who otherwise cannot afford them by refurbishing wheelchairs that are donated by private owners in the hopes of giving another dog the freedom of mobility, or by purchasing wheelchairs for these dogs in need through the generosity of our donors.
Educate the public about the causes, needs and specialized care requirements of senior and special needs pets through seminars, public speaking, and informative brochures. We attend many events throughout the year with educational displays and information. If your group is hosting an event and you’d like us to attend, please get in touch with us. We’ve also teamed with several local Humane Societies and Pet Stores to offer these same educational classes to the public at various times and locations.
Assist the needs of rescue organizations, shelters and individuals in the care of senior and special needs pets. In addition to the wheelchair and educational assistance listed above, we will assist, shelters, rescue, and individuals with other items such as lift-slings, doggie diapers, etc. when our funding or inventory allow it.
If you need assistance in measuring for a wheelchair or need help getting through the ordering or adjustment of a chair you have/will purchase from a manufacturer, we will be glad to assist. We’ll also be glad to assist if you just need some tips or advice on how to care for your senior or special needs pet. Our goal is to help make it easier for you to keep your pet rather than surrender or euthanize it. If you’re local to the Bucyrus/Galion/Mansfield Ohio area, we will come out in person and assist you. If you’re not local, we can assist by phone, Facetime or Skype.
We are a recognized 501(c)(3) public charity and we operate entirely on donated funds and items. There is absolutely no charge for any of the services we’ve listed here, although donations are certainly appreciated.
