My husband and I are in the process of adopting a tripawd from Angels Among Us (hopefully getting him tonight). I'm looking for others in the Atlanta area to connect with. Any help would be appreciated!

Yay! Thanks for joining and giving that Tripawd a chance at a great life. I know we have lots of members in Atlanta so hopefully they'll chime in soon and you can arrange a pawty. We'll be glad to help spread the word about a gathering!

Let us know more about your pup in Beyond Cancer once things are official, we'd love to know more.

Hey! I'm only about an hour and a half outside of Atlanta! We're always looking for other Tripawd parents in the area as well, so feel free to message me!

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

And let us know how we can help to organize and bring folks to it, we're happy to help however we can. Another idea is perhaps get together as part of a Puppy Up Walk? Don't know if any are in the works for Atlanta yet, but maybe if you guys want to contact them and ask... See:
