Canine cancer, particularly osteosarcoma, is something that has touched all of our lives in this amazing community, so once again the Tripawd Nation is forming a team to walk in support or memory of our best friends. An estimated 50 percent of all dogs will battle cancer. It is the No. 1 cause of death in dogs over the age of 2. Tripawds members know only too well the heartache and fear that comes with a cancer diagnosis. But we also know the joy that comes as we learn to live in the here and now with our best friends and experience the love that we share here in this incredible community. Please join us at the Los Gatos K9 Cancer Walk as we raise money for Morris Animal Foundation to help find a cure for this awful disease.
We have some big pawprints to fill after Mr T. (aka Tripod the Golden One) brought down the house in San Diego last month! Please join our team and attend the walk in April--we would LOVE to see you there! If you can't make it in person you can walk with us virtually by making a donation through Team Tripawds to help create a brighter future for tripawds and all animals battling cancer.
Team Tripawds will have a table at the event, we'll be showing the Tripawds Tribute Leash, and we hope to have some other fun things cooked up by then to help educate folks about tripawds. There will be numerous other vendors as well. Let's show Los Gatos 'It's better to hop on three legs than limp on four!'

Where: Vasona Lake Park

Wish we could be there. Someday I hope to see the Tribute leash that honors so many wonderful fur babies.
I encourage everyone to donate if you can. Team Tripawds is only$160 from their goal, but I think we can blow it out of the water!!! I want to stop anyone else from going through what we have.
