Tripawds At A Glance

Each day, our enlightened and educated members from around the globe provide extraordinary support to one another. At any given moment, a pet parent finds hope and inspiration after receiving the dreaded news that their animal must lose a limb to alleviate pain and improve their quality of life.

“Your support makes a big difference. Part of it is being able to share a love for our dogs that many of our friends/family may not understand, especially the extent we will go to in our efforts to prolong a quality life for them. The other part is being able to share experiences…We all approach it differently so being able to bounce ideas off each other and hear others experiences is very helpful.”

As Seen on PBS

Tripawds on Nature/PBS

Tripawds founders Jim and Rene were featured with their dog Jerry—the original inspiration behind—in “Nature, Why We Love Cats and Dogs.” The show first aired on PBS in 2009 and continues to be seen in syndication today.

Jim Nelson was also featured in a 2012 episode of Who Let The Dogs Out, filmed on location at the BlogPaws conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the segment he explains his passion for Tripawds, and how the community has grown over the years. Jim presented the popular Facebook session at the 2014 BlogPaws pet blogging and social media conference in Henderson Nevada, and he will be speaking again at BlogPaws 2015.

Both Jim and Rene presented the brunch keynote for the 2011 Take A Bite Out of Canine Cancer Conference in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Prior to launching Tripawds in 2006, together they managed the full service marketing communications and graphic firm they grew for ten years from their home in Eureka, California. Today, they continue to travel the country with spokesdog Wyatt Ray operating Tripawds from their mobile headquarters, making them available for regional events and speaking engagements.
