Have you seen some of the recycled leather wrist cuff bracelets and dog collars Rene has been making lately?
You can help this community simply by donating your unwanted leather belts. Rene can then turn them into personalized dog collars, matching wrist cuffs, and more! All proceeds help keep Tripawds online.
Please consider the following, then search your closets and drawers:
- Only plain leather belts, any color.

- Standard Heel Roller Buckles* only, please.
Send your belts to:

*The “Heel Roller” style is the most common buckle, which consists of a simple ring with a pin to fit into the hole on the belt.

Looking for a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted pet portrait for your beloved fur kids? BzTAT is your artist!
She captured Wyatt Ray’s exhuberance pawfectly when we won a contest for a free digital pet portrait at BlogPaws.
and she even found the essence of Tripawd Barret!
BzTAT, aka Vicki Boatright, is a great artist. She describes her work as follows:
“Digital Pet Portraits are quite popular, and despite being technologically created, they are each very unique. I use a variety of ipad apps and filters with each image to layer in a depth of color and texture. these add to the personality of the animal to create a very special artwork. They are also more economical for people who are budget conscious. I am also offering an option where I will send you the digital file where you can do the printing yourself! Learn more about ordering a portrait or YOUR pet here.”
Thanks Vicki, we’ll treasure our portrait forever!
