Did you receive this recent Tripawds News announcement?
Now More than Ever, Community Matters.
During this time of vital physical distancing, social engagement is more important than ever – especially for those of us already facing challenges and the emotional stress of caring for our amputee pets and three-legged cancer heroes. The Tripawds community provides a safe platform of support to engage with others who understand in the discussion forums, blogs, and live chat.
For that, we are grateful for all Tripawds members who help keep this a warm and welcoming space for all – away from the overwhelming and often false flow of information regarding the current COVID-19 crisis and Coronavirus pandemic.

And make no mistake about it, this community IS warm and welcoming because Jim and Rene are the loving energies that keep the compassion flowing though all our hearts.💜

Ditto to what Sally said! I would of been lost without this community over the past year, and now going thru the grieving process.
As I said if you look hard, no matter how bad something is, something good will come from it. Finding this community is a perfect example…
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!

I agree! This has always been a warm and welcoming community. We all come from different places and may have different values but have the love of our pets in common. Here we can share our joy, heartbreaks, and fears and others understand. I especially like the humour which helps to relieve the stress.
Thankfully we don’t have to social distance online and our pets don’t have to physically distance.
Thanks for the newsletter!!

Paw shucks, thanks everypawdy. This made our day. You are so kind.
We have always tried to keep this community on track, strictly about matters related to life on three legs with pets and pet parents. We’ve made it a point to leave most current events, politics, etc., out of this community. So far so good, but obviously COVID-19 is one thing that we cannot ignore. Nothing has ever touched all of us like this, regardless of where we live, what we believe in, etc. So our goal during this crisis is to continue making relevant information available, while still creating a space for comfort and respite, away from all the daunting news coming at us every hour.
Thank you for being here to add to the love and community spirit that is needed now more than ever. You are amazing!
