Handicapped Pets story: Selling Online Products for Elderly and Disabled Pets

HandicappedPets.com eCommerce site was created by me in 2001 in memory of Mercedes, a slightly epileptic Keeshond, who was put to sleep before her time because I didn’t know any better and had no way to find out more. Now there is a way.

My project started first with a discussion area where people could help each other care for their disabled pets. Then the community started to need products which I offered, so I decided to launch an online store.

My eCommerce store is unique because of the Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair invented by me. It is the only wheelchair that can adjust to dogs of any size. It is easy to order, simple to adjust, and can fold flat for easy shipping. The Walkin’ Wheels is the best selling dog wheelchair which received top honors at the H.H. Backer Pet Industry Trade Show in October 2010.

Now we have hundreds of products to support the caretakers of elderly, injured, and handicapped pets and our X-Cart store helps us to distribute them in 22 countries. I have chosen X-Cart PHP shopping cart platform for my project because of the ability to customize, add third-party modules, and get help from the forum. All this is very attractive.
