Animals who have difficulties with ᴅɪsᴀʙɪʟɪᴛɪᴇs are now much happier because of the citizen who takes out amazing works from a small warehouse.

Dr. Lincoln Parkes, 92 years old, has lived a long life and he’s dedicated much of that life to caring for animals in need. He was days are spent making strollers for dogs that have unhappy lives. This man cheers up the sad dogs in the town of Chesapeake Bay.

Parkes has worked as a veterinarian for many years and has helped countless animals when they needed it most. He invested more than 60 years of his selfless life in building carts for these innocent animals.

After Dr. Parkes retired, nothing changed. He even directed everything towards his goal, his greatest passion. He located the workshop not far from his home and worked in a wheelchair there.
This man experienced a situation where he found a man whose dog was injured in a car ᴄʀᴀsʜ. The dog couldn’t do anything with his hind legs, but then Parkes made a K-9 stroller and so gave new life to a little friend.
That was just the beginning of Parkes’ creation, so in the 1960s he became the owner of a shop for a stroller like this, which he made himself.

The days of this great man are now being spent in making special carts for special animals, and that seems to him a great fortune. We believe it is indescribably beautiful to see the happiness on the face of a small dog who gets new life because of this invention.
Parkes said it was love. He simply enjoys giving a new opportunity to these little creatures. He compared them to children when they gain independence, because, as he says, prams give them the mobility that they have not had before. Then they use their front legs to the maximum, and so their spirit moves away.

The doctor said that his only pension is actually this one and that at the end of each day or the beginning of a new one, around midnight, he retires again. But he loves it and enjoys helping dogs in one amazing way.
Over the years, competition has emerged, so sales of Parkes strollers have been significantly lower, only a few hundred in a year, and his business is no longer national.

Parkes’s cart had given the pup its life back, and Parkes had found a new calling in life. He’s saved so many lives, both as a vet and thanks to his puppy wheelchairs, and we’re absolutely in awe of his compassion and dedication.
