 Tasha is challenging all of her buddies to donate $ 50.00 dollars a month for the next 4 months, we figured all we need to do is give up one dinner out each month to help Tripawds reach their goal and Keep the Lights On !

 This site has been a life saver for us as we started and continue this journey that none of us ever wanted. I can't even begin to think what this journey would have been without all the advice, support, compassion that we all receive here at Tripawds.

 So today Tasha is donating her first $ 50.00 dollars to Tripawds, Lets all help Keep the Lights On, are you up for the CHALLENGE? Please lets all help so they can reach their goal!



Tasha 8 years old, First cancer diagnosis 6/26/09, Last cancer diagnosis 9/26/09, Amputation 10/01/09, Loving our girl moment by moment.

Tasha lost her battle and became my Angel on May 4 2011. Forever in my heart….

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Didnt know I could set it to automatically renew, but I did do my first $50.  This web site has been so important for so many of us.  I hate to think that it could not be here for those that need it in the future.

You couldn't at the time. I was still setting up that subscription button when you sent your contribution. Feel free to subscribe, and just cancel after three months. Thanks again for your support!
