Triday is International Tripawd Awareness Day

We are excited to announce the International Tripawd Awareness Day is coming soon! On 3/3 we will be hosting the official Triday for the first time. While we’ve been celebrating Triday for years here at Tripawds, March 3, 2022 will be the first official Tripawd Awareness Day. And we need your help spreading the word! We promise to make it fun for you too…


Triday = 3/3

Join us in celebrating pet amputation awareness and honoring three-legged heroes and angels everywhere on International Tripawd Awareness Day. The first official Triday is March 3, 2022.

“Triday” is the official International Tripawd Awareness Day to raise awareness about limb amputation for our beloved pets. Born with three legs and a spare, amputation is sometimes the best way to improve quality of life for dogs and cats affected by limb cancers, congenital challenges, or injury.

Why Celebrate Triday?

Because three is a magic number! On March third – 3/3 – we honor three-legged pets everywhere and the people who care for them. Find fun ways to spread the word below.

Every year on March third (3/3), Tripawd Awareness Day – aka: Triday – honors animal amputees and the people who care for them by celebrating pet amputation awareness among pet lovers and the veterinary community. Whether an animal is born with a limb difference, or undergoes amputation for any reason, 3/3 is the best day of the year to showcase the resilient ways that dogs, cats, and other animals face limb loss and life on three legs.

  1. Prissy is my six year old Serengeti kitty. She became a Tri-paid when her first owner carelessly left her door open and Prissy saw her shot at freedom! She ran out,and flew to get across the street, only to be hit by a moving van, breaking her jaw and crushing her front left paw. Miraculously, she survived! She had her crushed leg was amputated. I never met an animal with three legs before! She was no different than other kitties as far as her jumping, balance not to mention her exceptional adaptation for running! She goes from 0 to 60 just a second! Her gait is a little awkward, but not clumsy, and she can hold her own in the school yard lol! She is one of a kind, I’m blessed to have her. She has taught me alot about adapting to different situations, how giving up is not an option and how to have pride in oneself no matter how we are viewed in others eyes! She’s my companion and my inspiration to keep on truckin’, life can only get better when you’ve lived through the hardest!!
