A 15-and-a-half-year old mix breed dog named Ike has been the pride and joy of Risa Feldman for twelve years and when he was diagnosed with bone cancer she wanted to have him live out his days as happy and comfortable as possible.
The cancer in one of his back legs has made Ike’s favorite activity, walking along the southern California beaches, painful and difficult. His wheelchair helped, but he would get tired easily, reported Feldman.
Feldman went into Home Depot and asked an employee for help in modifying a cart that that would be a better fit for Ike and give him more mobility with less strain. Ernesto Moran said he would try and come up with a design and call her.
Ernesto Moran and co-worker Justin Wadman came up with the perfect solution: a custom push cart and ramp that would enable Ike to be easily pushed along the beach and enjoy all the sounds, sights, and smells, and to Ms. Feldman’s surprise they told her they would make it for her for FREE!
“I offered to build this for her and let her know that it’s something that Home Depot offers — giving back to our customers,” Moran told a local news station.
Feldman told a reporter, “I just wanted people to know that there are still people out there who do good things, really.”
We say, good job Home Depot. Good job.
