B There or B Square: Come Play with Team Tripawds in Los Gatos, CA!!

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!’ 

When: Sunday, April 13, 2014

Where: Vasona Lake Park
333 Blossom Hill Rd
Los Gatos, CA

Walk day registration will open at 9:00 a.m.
Walk and Opening Ceremony will be at 10:00 a.m.

p.s. If anyone lives in the Bay Area and has a canopy or standing umbrella we can borrow please PM me!

Woohoo! Tripawd Awareness Day!

Can’t wait for 3/3/13!! So here’s my short tail…..

I am Codie Rae, I rule the Oaktown Pack with an iron paw. My life changed for the better 7 years ago… I was dumped at the shelter with a wire wrapped around my leg. Next thing I woke up with 3 legs… it was time to get on with LIFE! Being a regulator is a full time job but I moonlight as a video star, representing the Tripawds Nation! We have over 1 million views and if “my” video results in the adoption of just one lonely tripawd then I will be the happiest dawg on the planet!




Live Your Dreams!
