Caring for a Three Legged Dog or Cat
Tripawds is your home to learn how to care for a three legged dog or cat, with answers about dog leg amputation, and cat amputation recovery from many years of member experiences.
Are you the sort who chats to your pets throughout the day? If you’d like a trikitty who’ll join the banter, Paige is your girl! She’s a beautiful smokey grey tabby and here’s what Yellow Brick Road Rescue in Nutley, NJ has to say about her:
Paige is an 8 year old female. She found herself at a busy inner city shelter with a leg injury. Unfortunately there was no way to save her leg and it had to be amputated. She has adjusted to tripod life easily and is very sweet. She starts purring as soon as you walk in the room and also loves to chat. She would be great with kids. She does fine around other cats and would be fine with a quieter dog(s).
CHARACTERISTICS: Friendly, Affectionate, Brave
GOOD IN A HOME WITH: Other cats, dogs, children.

There are also some amazing tripups in the area too: Bee Bee Dee, Mandi Sue, Papa, Roo, Sergeant Skippy, Fordham, Magnum, Charlie, Cuckoo, Esme, Snooby, Thomas, Sephiroth, Sonya, Penny, Leyla, and Ms. Pickles!
And if these tripawds aren’t near enough or the right fit for you, perhaps share them with someone who is?

Note: With any tripawd, it’s good to ask about the reason for the amputation if it’s unlisted, just to get a clearer picture of the pet’s health and history. “Unknown” isn’t a dealbreaker, but more info can help you as a pet parent make a more informed decision!
