I have two Ruffwear harnesses: a blue in small and a red in medium.  Unused both of them–we tried each on Lucy once or twice at the most, and she did not take to them–but we had removed sales tags, so couldn’t return. Either/both free to anyone–I’d appreciate it if you could pay postage, but  if that is too much I’ll just send on.  Lucy is among the angels now and running on all four legs again, so we will not need them in the future

Here and Now

HI Binkycat,

I’m so sorry about Lucy, and so appreciative of your generosity.

My husband and I are adopting a tripawd we have fostered since his amputation about 10 days ago (just couldn’t give him up!). We are finding that between buying some special supplies for him and making plans to get him in to the rehab vet, the expenses are adding up. I’ve been monitoring ebay for a ruffwear harness but not much luck so far!

We would love to take you up on the offer of the medium harness, and would be happy to pay postage and even reimburse you a portion of your original cost. Please let me know how to proceed. (I have been lurking on these forums since we started fostering, but just today signed up for an account, so I’m a bit new to the process). 

Thank you !

Amy

Hello and welcome Amy! Congratulations on your ‘failure’!!!!

Please start another topic in ‘Beyond Cancer’ and tell us about your boy.

As a reminder- the Angel Exchange rules allow only for the negotiations of shipping cost- the item being exchanged is offered for free.

Hi Amy, I am going to send you a private message now so that you can give me your mailing address.  I am so glad that at least one harness will be in use. Catherine

Let us know when you make contact and get the harness ready to mail so we can change the topic title.

Wonderful to help out another Tripawd!

Sorry it’s taken me so long to update! But I was able to pick up the harness on Saturday at the post office, then it took a few days to get some pix uploaded. 

Lenny was initially a bit sad to discover the harness was not a toy 😉 but once we got it on and adjusted, he looks very dapper in it. And it has helped a lot to give him an extra little boost getting in & out of the car. 

I will start a new topic soon to write a little more about Lenny. Thank you Tripawds for hosting this Angel Exchange, and thank you SO much binkycat and Lucy for the gift of this harness. It will be put to good use. big-grin

Hi I am new to this site and I recently had to have my puppy Gracie Jo front left leg amputated, she is 4 months old and a jack Russell blue tick mix. She is estimated to get to be 18 pounds. I cant measure her at the moment cause she had to go back to the vet til this Thursday march 1,2018. I live way below poverty level and I was lucky enough to have a local organization pay half of her amputation and my mom helped with the rest. I’m looking at all these things I need to get her but I just don’t have money to get. I would not mind paying the postage for the small harness. She had her surgery on February 22,2018. I miss her and can’t wait til she comes home but I’m also super freaked out. This would truly be a blessing. I can definitely call her vet to see if they can measure her for me as well.

Hi gracie2017jrt,  I would be happy to send out the harness; we can pay postage on it as a gift from our angel Lucy.  Please private message me when you have the measurements–the harness is about 11 inches long at its longest.  I hope this can work out for you. Catherine
