Midwest Supporters Raise Tripawd Awareness Annual Event

In February, long-time Tripawds community supporters Spirit Hope’s pack, Barb and John Young, along with Cadence’s Mom Heather Neal, helped get the word out about three-legged heroes at the My Furry Valentine Adoption Extravaganza held on February 15th and 16th in West Chester, Ohio.


Despite terrible weather, Barb was able to make it to the event where she reports that “I passed out A LOT of information, especially to rescues and shelters.”

She adds “There were 4 tripawd dogs that were available for adoption–one was in the booth next to me!”


As part of the Young’s dedication to their Mission of Hope project, Barb and John worked hard at the two day event to promote animal amputee awareness, and even secured some generous donations to the community!

Unfortunately, Cadence and her Mom Heather were prevented from making the long drive from Chicago because of the bad weather. Barb says that last year’s attendees remembered Cadence and were sad that she couldn’t make it.

Please join us in giving a big “Three Paws Up!” to these generous Midwestern Tripawds supporters who continue their effort to raise Tripawd awareness!

  1. Hi everyone except Monkeybutts!

    Events are so much fun to do and you meet wonderful people while talking about this loving, supportive community!

    Everything you need to get started is included in the link above, “free Tripawds fliers.” You’ll find many rescues and shelters will want info about tripawds; they have all had a three-legged animal up for adoption and are happy to have literature to give to people who adopt tripawds.

    Lots of animal events will be starting soon, so send in your applications to be included (rescues, shelters and non profits are rarely charged a fee to set up), print your fliers, set up your table and start talking! If you have a tripawd dog, don’t leave him/her at home! Your dog (or cat or other tripawd companion) will steal the show, just like Cadence does in Cincinnati when we do events with her and mom Heather.

    You can help a lot of people and animals by sharing this wonderful tripawds group!

    Your friends,

    Spirit Hope and parents Barb and John

      • Jerry, your parents and your tripawd family were all so kind and supportive after Hope’s surgery that we wanted to pay it forward. Please give Hope a kiss from us and tell her how much we miss her….
