Gunnar’s Wheels Foundation

Gunnar’s Wheels Foundation
This non-profit organization provides wheelchairs for dogs in need. The animal gets to use the cart free of charge until the cart is no longer needed. Then the cart is sent back to the foundation where they prepare it for the next animal who needs it. The organization was born when founder Jason Parker’s black lab Gunnar was hit by a car and lost the use of his back legs. After spending all of his money on vet bills, Jason could not afford a wheelchair for his beloved dog. Luckily, Jason’s friends and family stepped in to help him get a wheelchair for Gunnar. Jason then realized that there might be many other people in his situation, so Gunnar’s Wheels Foundation was born. Jason and Gunnar were chosen as GoFundMe Heroes in April 2017, propelling the foundation into the national spotlight — now the foundation receives multiple requests for help every day. Their goal is to help every animal that is in need of a wheelchair.

Our financial grant will fund animals in shelters or fosters who are in need of a cart. To learn more about this group’s amazing work, visit their official Facebook page by searching for Gunnar's Wheels.

3rd Coast Labrador Rescue

3rd Coast Labrador Rescue
Established in 2015, 3rd Coast Labrador Rescue is a non-profit organization comprised of unpaid volunteers who are dedicated to rescuing, healing and rehoming Labradors and Labrador mixes in Michigan.

At present, they do not maintain a presence in a dedicated facility, but rather utilize their own private network of foster homes throughout the state of Michigan. Currently, they're working towards expanding their volunteer foster network and hope to establish a fund to use to help offset the significant costs of urgent medical care.
