I have so many questions, where do I start?
Try beginning by reading thru some of our Frequestly asked questions, it may help you narrow down some questions you didn't know to ask.

How will I know when "it's" time?
Quality vs. Quantity is always a topic of discussion.
We encourage people to "listen to your pup"
Some pups take this journey better than others so it is really important for people to assess their own pup's likes and dislikes. For example, some pups love water and do well in hydrotherapy while others are not fans of water and therefore would appreciate if you explored another option for them.
We've also developed good guide specific to handicapped pups to help you evaluate your pup's Quality of Life in our "FILES" section. It's available for you to print out and take with you to your vet appointment.
Absolutely! They can both urinate and defecate perfectly fine once they are comfortable in the cart. It is important to monitor how much they actually "go" though so that you confirm that nothing is "blocked" (sometimes it's necessary to make sure their lil unmentionables are lined up so they are free & clear to "go").
Sometimes, if they "won't go" it helps to go find some new smells somewhere at a park.
Named after "KC", a beautiful Pembroke Welsh Corgi who lost her battle with Degenerative Myelopathy in 2017, the program provides new or gently-used carts and other mobility equipment to all breeds of dogs with a variety of medical conditions.
Eligibility for a cart or other mobility equipment through KC’s Kruisers is based upon the physical need of the dog and the financial need of the owner.
We support pups with all kinds of physical challenges (just to name a few):
In order to qualify for equipment under KC’s Kruisers, an owner must fill out the KC’s Kruisers application to provide general information about the dog as well as the detailed information necessary to order equipment. Our team will follow up with the applicant, and the dog’s veterinarian may be contacted to ensure that a cart is the best option.
There are several other cart programs available and we strive to have a strong relationship with all of them as well. After all, we are all in this for the same reason, and that is to help the pups!
We are so grateful for those of you that want your beloved late pup's cart to help more pups in need!
If you have a cart that you would like to donate to our program, you can ship it to:
500 West Graham Ave # 736,
Lake Elsinore, CA 92530
