We are excited to announce the International Tripawd Awareness Day is coming soon! On 3/3 we will be hosting the official Triday for the first time. While we've been celebrating Triday for years here at Tripawds, March 3, 2022 will be the first official Tripawd Awareness Day. And we need your help spreading the word! We promise to make it fun for you too...

Triday = 3/3

Join us in celebrating pet amputation awareness and honoring three-legged heroes and angels everywhere on International Tripawd Awareness Day. The first official Triday is March 3, 2022.

“Triday” is the official International Tripawd Awareness Day to raise awareness about limb amputation for our beloved pets. Born with three legs and a spare, amputation is sometimes the best way to improve quality of life for dogs and cats affected by limb cancers, congenital challenges, or injury.

Why Celebrate Triday?

Because three is a magic number! On March third – 3/3 – we honor three-legged pets everywhere and the people who care for them. Find fun ways to spread the word below.

Every year on March third (3/3), Tripawd Awareness Day – aka: Triday – honors animal amputees and the people who care for them by celebrating pet amputation awareness among pet lovers and the veterinary community. Whether an animal is born with a limb difference, or undergoes amputation for any reason, 3/3 is the best day of the year to showcase the resilient ways that dogs, cats, and other animals face limb loss and life on three legs.

So exciting!!  You two are always taking things to the next level around here!  This is yet another example of your creativity while always keeping your eye on raising  tripawd awareness!😎

And  love that it's  FUN !!!👍

PS....downloaded  and just tried to "write" on the placard.  No go.   Is this android/tablet/dummy "friendly"?

Thanks Sally! Well we hope the campaign gets the word out wide and far.

Hmmm. Interesting about not being able to write on it. Admin's suggestion: take a screenshot of it, then "write" on it with your tavlet app. We will make it available as a .jpg photo file later today to make it easier for folks to do stuff like this. Thanks for thinking of it!

I stumbled on that song and could not believe it. PURRFECT! They have a copyright claim but are allowing me to use it. Said it might play commercials on it 🙄🤞🏻

WOW! We can't believe that the big day is almost here. The Triday stories have been coming in, and you will sp_hearticon2them! Here's one example:

This is our first Triday with our beautiful perfectly imperfect Penny! She is a Tri due to a horrific experience with humans but she is living her best life now. She is the definition of resilient. After a year long recovery from extensive injuries, she loves every single person she meets, always greets them with this smile, and is so happy and excited about the smallest things. She is perfect and we are so lucky to be in her life. Her past and physical trauma doesn’t define her, her resiliency and love for life does.

Thank you!
Lindsey & Dustin (Pawrents of Penny)

Meet Penny!

By Claire Horton-Bussey -3rd March 2022

Today, 3/3, is Tripawd Awareness Day – aka Triday – when animal lovers and the veterinary community honour animal amputees and the people who care for them.

Whether an animal is born with a limb difference, or undergoes amputation for any reason, 3/3 is the best day of the year to showcase the resilient ways that dogs, cats and other animals face limb loss and life on three legs.

HAPPY TRIDAY!!!

This is front legger tripawd Frankie showing how he masters the part of chewing a bone.  Frankie  says "Needing two front legs to chew a bone is overrated". Frankie had been in a shelter for a year as a tripawd.  I brought  him into my home and my heart six years ago♥️

  Screenshot_20220303-111822_Gallery.jpgImage Enlarger

Next picture is front legger tripawd Cash.  His one front leg is pretty much fused at the elbow.  The photo shows the "stump" that was removed by the shelter. Cash was at the shelter for over a year.  I brought him jnto my heart and home five months ago♥️

This just in from Reo's people:

Reo-rotated.jpegImage Enlarger

Our wonderful vet introduced us to Tripawds the day our Reo was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Reo has been a “TReo” now for four months and doing great. That first day after her diagnosis I downloaded the ebook from Tripawds called “Three Legs and a Spare “ and read the entire book that day. It helped us make some big decisions quickly. The Tripawd Foundation continues to provide great information and answers as we continue this journey. Thank you Tripawds for all you do!
