I've been meaning to take a minute to thank this wonderful community and the Tripawds Foundation - Maggie Moo Fund for Tripawd Rehab. I was so impressed, and honestly shocked (in the best way) at how quick and easy the application and funding was for my Tripawd's first rehab assessment.
If you've put your tripawd into a physical rehab program, you know how expensive this can be, and that you still have a time commitment to perform additional exercises at home. It feels slow going in the beginning but you just have to be patient. I was so excited to find out about the Tripawds foundation and am so grateful for their assistance with the consult. When I submitted my application I didn't expect to hear back for a month and was blown away when I heard back and received assistance the following day! Best experience I've ever had.
So just a shout-out of thanks and gratitude for your assistance AND responsiveness - just amazing!

Oh. My. Dog! You are so very welcome Kim! It makes our hearts hoppy when someone takes their new Tripawd into therapy, Thomas is a very lucky pup to have a mom like you. Keep up the great work!

It's one of the best write ups we've received. Thanks again Kim!

A very kind and heartfelt note♥️
And so glad Jerry included Thomas's link to his Rehabe experience. I had missed it.
Thomas is so cute and soooo lucky to have found his way to you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about him, his background and subsequent Rehab visit. Of course, the pictures of his cute self made it extra special 😎
Looking forward to following Thomas and all his adv in his furever home.
