"The kids" and I might be down that way visiting my folks (They only live 40 miles away from Cinci) if the weather works out. I would like more information on volunteering if possible for a couple of hours. You can PM me or just respond here. Thanks!

Oh, wow!!  it would be great to have you all there with us that day!  So far, I've been able to recruit our wonderful vet's wonderful assistant.  wink  Please feel free to come to the event whenever you can!  We have tripawd literature to pass out, people to talk with and lots of dog and people treats AND cat and dog items to sell!  This is the first event of this size in Greater Cincinnati and includes several satellite adoption sites.  I'm also a volunteer for the event so can tell you that everyone is working extra hard to make this the first of many Furry Valentines!  Please email me at if you think you can make it–sure hope so!

Thank you for posting the event, Jerry.  You did a fantastic job, as usual.  clap

And Charon, Spirit Gayle will be right there with us along with Hope, Jerry, Chili Dawg, Trouble, Abby, Rio, Fortis, Comet and the whole gang, just like when you went on the cancer walk and Spirit Hope was walking with you and Gayle. 

Hope to see you there!

Barb, John and Spirit Hope (and even Monkeybutt Mack!)

Hope you have a great turnout at the event. We will be there with you in spirit!

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!
