Hi everyone!   I am delighted to serve as captain of Team Tripawds for the Chicago PuppyUp Foundation walk this Saturday!   I would love to get an accurate head count – are you coming?  If so, it would be great if you can register with Team Tripawds – there is no registration fee.   Even if you can’t come, what about registering and posting a picture of your tripawd on your personal page?  Donations are also always accepted – you can donate to the team as a whole on the PuppyUp walk website.  

I am a bit competitive, and noticed that Team Tripawds is currently the #2 fundraising team.   Seems like we should be #1!!!  And remember that PuppyUp has agreed to donate 20% of the donations to our team to Tripawds, so even more reason to donate.

But whether you register or not, please reply to let me know if you are planning on attending!

Join Team Tripawds Here!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Here and Now

Yesh Everypawdy!

Please consider making a small donation to Team Tripawds to support the Puppy Up Foundation in their research efforts to end cancer in pets and people. You do not have to be at the walk in Chicago to support your team!

exclamation PLUS: Puppy Up will be sharing donations collected for Team Tripawds during the month of September with the Tripawds Foundation . As of right now, that amount in zero.

Little does Admin know, but we received donations of $1,050 today.  That means that Puppy Up will give over $200 to the Tripawds Foundation !  And, we are only $200 away from our team goal of raising $3000!    I would love to get to that goal, so please consider joining the team, in person or virtually!  Just think of what a powerful message we are sending to all of the dog owners at the event who might some day face the same challenges we all have faced.

Thank you to midnighter94 and sweet Murphy, who I was honored to meet at last year’s walk, for supporting Team Tripawds!

Thank you, Christine, for all of your hard work for the walk!  I really wish we could attend this year, but my work schedule didn’t allow it.

Woo hoo!   We just topped $3000, our Team goal, and we are currently the #1 team (not that I am competitive or anything).   Special thanks to the Ortiz family and Tripawd Roscoe, and Karen Riley and angel Maggie, for their generous contributions!  

Since 20% of the funds we raise go to the Tripawds Foundation (thank you, PuppyUp!), can we raise a little bit more???

Not sure if anyone has seen it, but the PuppyUp Foundation September 2017 Newsletter is all about Tripawds!   (Perhaps Admin could insert a link?).   It features an article (and great photos) about Cadence and Heather, as well as an article titled “How to Care for a Three-Legged Dog,” featuring Jerry and spokesdog Wyatt.  

And remember, they are donating 20% of any donations made to Team Tripawds in September right back to us!
