Over the years, members have told us how useful Tripawds.com is for them. Some have generously given to this community, and many more ask what they can do to help out.
To answer this question, we created the "How to Support the Tripawds Community" page. This is where we describe how members can help support our efforts to keep Tripawds online. For example:
- Shopping in our Featured Blogs
- Subscribe as a Tripawds Blogs Supporter
- Naming Your Price for a "Tripawds Rule!" Bandanna
- Starting an Automatic Gift Subscription from $5 on Up
From sharing what you know about canine amputation to throwing a bone in the Tripawds Tip Jar, all of these contributions will help the community thrive (like the recent site upgrade to improve performance).
Never in a million years would we have thought that one little blog about my bone cancer journey would create such a supportive community, both online and offline.
Today, it's a 24/7 labor of love for my pawrents, who don't get paid to bring you the information, resources and infrastructure you know as Tripawds.com.
They get a lot of personal satisfaction out of doing what they do, but unfortunately that doesn't cover the costs of keeping us going.
If you're already here, you're well aware that once you go down the Tripawd path, nothing is ever the same. Thank you for being here to hold the hands and paws of old, new and future members. Together, we'll make sure that nobody has to hop this road alone.
UPDATE: Support The Tripawds Foundation!
PLEASE NOTE: As of November 2014, the Tripawds Foundation 501c3 public charity is now accepting charitable contributions. Find complete details about how you can support Tripawds Foundation projects in the Tripawds Foundation blog and consider making a charitable contribution to honor your angels and heroes on the Memorial Wall.
Heather has given an incredible amount over the years to help support this community, and we can never thank her enough for her ongoing contributions, which she has just modified with a top level monthly gift.
Many thanks to Cynthia (aka: littlemanjake) for her generous contribution...
"...In memory of Molly, our golden Tripawd friend from rehab. Molly and her parents had a very difficult emotional adjustment after her front leg amputation in October, but things were slowly improving. Their journey together unexpectedly ended Friday when Molly was unable to walk & a second cancer was discovered in her hip. We will miss her."
