On Sunday April 13, about 1100 humans and dogs showed up in support of the groundbreaking work that Morris is doing to discover causes, treatments and cures for animal cancer. Over $115,000 was raised for this very important effort.
Team Tripawds alone raised $1,050, more than double our original goal! Thank you to everyone who chipped in for the effort.
A big hearty thanks goes out to The Oaktown Pack leaders Martha and Ralph, who coordinated this fundraising effort as well as creating and staffing our first ever Tripawds display at a Morris event!
Oaktown Pack member Codie Rae writes in her blog:
Ralph and Karen were busy the whole time talking to people and handing out our custom made Paw Patch Pastries treats and Austin, Tani, and Obie demonstrated their K9 fitness on the Fit Paws balance disc. Ralph said that he talked to a couple of vets who said Tripawds.com was an amazing resource and that they always send people facing amputation here! He also said almost everyone he talked to said “Oh, I had a tripawd once … or … I know somebody who has a tripawd.”
Let’s give an extra shout-out to Carla, owner of Paw Patch Pastries, who generously donated not just a slew of dog treats but also a canopy to help us with this sharp looking display! Let’s all show our thanks by purchasing her deeeelicious dog and cat treats!
Oaktown Pack member Austin Ray thinks that going to events like this is a great way to show the world what a Tripawd can do. Don’t you agree?
Thank you everyone! Together with Morris, we WILL find a way to end animal cancer.
