The Frankie Wheelchair Fund & National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day

In the summer of 2012 I founded the Frankie Wheelchair Fund and National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day in loving memory of my wheelie dog, Frankie, to continue her mission of bringing positive awareness to the fact that dogs in wheelchairs can live long, happy, quality lives.

Through the generous donations of others and fundraising efforts, the Frankie Wheelchair Fund has granted wheelchairs to disabled dogs in need. To date, our efforts have helped sixty dogs gain the gift of mobility!


National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day is my near and dear to heart effort to keep Frankie’s mission alive with many photos and stories I share on our special Facebook page highlighting the beautiful lives these wheelie dogs live and the many lives they touch.

  1. I am looking for help in locating a free wheelchair for my dachshund, Frankie. Any resources you can suggest? Thanks.

    1. Hi Christine,

      I lost my little paraplegic dachshund, Sacha, on 22 May but whilst I am still grieving heavily for her, I do know the pleasure of being mobile again gave her. I just wanted to try and help by letting you know about The DogMobile Company in the UK, which builds wheelchairs for dogs at a very reasonable price. After the huge vet bills I got for Sacha, I needed to find a wheelchair for her quickly but I didn’t have much money. This company, based in Bridlington, Northern England, UK is run by a very nice couple and, as you will see if you google their site,their prices are affordable. I do hope this helps you in your search to help your little one. Very best wishes, Susan Day.
