Using a Pet Stroller for Benefit Pet Walks

We've found that the reasons people purchase pet strollers are almost as varied as the people and pets who use them. From time to time, we share a new pet stroller purpose that someone shares or we run across on the Internet, and here's one so obvious I'm surprised it's never come up before: A pet stroller makes a great and safe way for smaller pets to participate in charity pet walks.

We saw this post for the "Paws and Claws" benefit walk in Pittsburgh to benefit Orphans of the Storm. Their rule is that "All pets must be on a leash or in a pet stroller." We think this is an excellent use of pet strollers to enhance the lives of people and their pets and to keep dogs safe from other aggressive animals. (Or if your dog is aggressive, a pet stroller is an excellent way to keep them away from other pooches at a big event like this.)

We would've promoted the event here in advance, but alas the post was made on the same day as the event (which happened yesterday). We hope all of the dogs and humans had a great time!
