Please join us in giving Three Paws Up to the generous Tripawds members who have kindly chipped in to help rebuild the Tripawds operational fund!
As you probably know, last week we appealed to the Tripawds community for assistance in rebuilding the fund that pays for things like website hosting, technical expertise, outreach materials and more, after we incurred unexpected expenses for improving server performance and security.
If you haven’t yet had a chance but would still like to help, remember it’s never too late, and no amount is too small.
Since our appeal was made a few days ago, an incredible group of folks have already stepped up for the cause with an amazing $815! and we would like to publicly thank them here. If we have left anypawdy out of this list, please forgive us and let us know. And of course we send a big Thank You to Tripawds’ regular monthly supporters who are also helping to rebuild the fund!

Shari Watson, aka Spirit Dakota’s Mom . . .
Shari dedicated her generous gift to these Tripawds members and said:
“In honor of Michelle Doner (Sassy) and Erica Berse (Jill). Because they are hugely important to providing a calming welcome to new members, and without them many would not see the hope that is there.”
Julie Wolf, mom to Super Dog Angel Hunter.
“In loving memory of Super Dog. Thank you Tripawds”
Mary Hirsch, whose adorable Tripawd Freckles earned her wings in April 2012. Mary is a Swell Gal whose talented writing and performance career is worth checking out.
