Friday, March 27, 2009 Needs Your Help!

For those who may not know, Tripawds is the three-legged dog blog Jim Nelson and René Agredano started when their dog Jerry was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in late 2006. Once they launched the Tripawd Discussion forums in early 2008, it quickly grew into a leading resource for those faced with difficult decisions about canine cancer treatment and amputation for dogs.

For the past couple years Jim and René alone have maintained this growing website and covered all costs to keep it going, even after saying goodbye to Jerry last October. Traffic to, however, has now increased beyond the capabilities of their current shared hosting plan, and website performance has been affected.

With a mission to maintain Jerry's legacy and determined to keep Tripawds up and running at peak performance, Jim and René are moving the website to a new dedicated server. But this is a costly upgrade and they can't do it alone. They have therefore just announced the first Tripawds fundraising campaign ever, to cover the cost of migration and the first year of managed hosting.

Please consider showing your support for canine cancer survivors and other three legged dogs by helping with a small contribution. Gifts sent through the ChipIn! button are safe and secure. This blog post at tripawds includes complete details. Thank you for your consideration.

Yer Old Uncle Big Dog would very be slap happy if you helped out Jim & Rene - they've done so much for me & the boys since way back in the beginning. Indeed, they're part of our family!
