Anderson Pooper, pet celeb, and overall inspiration to disabled pups everywhere
She is a dachshund with all the makings of an inspirational Hollywood spectacular. O.K., maybe not quite, but she sure has a wide fan base. Most fans don’t simply love Pooper for her name (Love it!), but also because of her for encouragement to other pets with disabilities. Little Miss Pooper is the first disabled dog in a wheelchair that has raced in a wiener dog race. Who doesn’t love an underdog (haha!)? Especially when they’re as cute as her.
Pooper has gone on to become a YouTube superstar with her video being viewed hundreds of thousands of times. Because of her tenacity and will to survive, Pooper is now the leader for Animals With Disabilities, a non-profit organization that helps disabled dogs and cats live long and healthy lives. Perhaps Poopers biggest fan is a small kitten named Frank. Frank, too, is paralyzed and his foster parent hopes that Frank can have a second chance at a happy life. Frank saw Poopers video and his foster quickly e-mailed Poopers owner, Brenda Sizer, asking if Pooper could help.
Frank is currently at 35% ($862/$2500) of his total fundraising goal in order to raise money for his medical costs. If you can’t adopt little Frank, then I think we can all donate just a bit to make sure he, like Pooper, can live life to the fullest!
