Just making a thread for general updates about the current goings on in the rescue forum.

First off, just a quick note that at the moment I’ve decided to list all the tripups and trikitties in a particular region (usually a state, province or collection of states and provinces), so even if the feature pet is a cat or a dog, you’ll find some of each (cats and dogs) listed in every post (as long as I can find some of both!)

Also, please don’t be sheepish about posting to the forum any tripawds you find! The ones I post are mostly from and many rescues don’t list their pets there. So, if you find a tripawd in your local rescue and you can’t adopt it yourself, please let us know as someone from the community may be a good fit!

Also, feel free to post regularly in your social media about the adoptable tripawds you see here - help others get hooked on tripawds!!!

And as always, if you’re still looking for your tripawd match and haven’t found one here in the rescue forum, try this!

Quick heads up - I’ll be taking the coming week (Nov 19-25) off from posting new tripawd rescues. (Every effort needs a rest now and again to keep it sustainable!)

However, don’t fear!

  • There are many tripawds already listed for you to peruse!
  • Help the tripawds here in the forum each find a loving home by sharing them on your social media!
  • Be sure to list in the forum any tripawds you come across in your local shelters that you aren’t able to adopt yourself or aren’t a good match for you. (List a new tripawd by going to the rescue forum and clicking the “Add Topic” button, and you’re away!)
  • And if after cruising all the forum listings you’re still looking for your tripawd match, remember to try this!
