Help Us Keep the Puppy Pride Community Thriving
Published 1 month ago
Puppy Pride CIC is over 10 years old, and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us the past decade.
Over the past 10 years we’ve watched the community grow immensely and we’re proud of the part we have played in that.
Puppy Pride has been directly running the pup walking groups at Pride in London, and growing an annual party around it. And we’ve been supporting many events, both small and large, around the world.
We know that a lot of events wouldn’t have gotten to where they are without our direct support, and we want to make sure we can continue to provide this for them, and any other event that needs it, as much as possible.
Why We Need Your Support Now
At the moment we seriously need financial help if Puppy Pride is to remain operational.
In the wake of COVID-19, added to the recent huge inflationary increases, our operating costs have soared. From hosting and shipping to legal expenses, we're feeling the financial strain.
Our commitment to enhancing our website and dealing with unexpected legal issues has further stretched our resources. Unfortunately, this has led to an accumulation of debts that we need to address urgently.
To be able to continue operating, and helping the global pup scene, we need your financial support. If we don’t get it then I’m honestly not sure if we can keep going.
How You Can Help

3. Share Investment Opportunities

The Impact of Your Support
Your contributions go beyond just keeping us afloat. They enable us to continue creating safe, fun spaces for pups around the world. With your help, we can keep fostering the growth and vibrancy of this community we all love.
Join our journey to sustain this community
As we stand at this crossroads, I reflect on the incredible journey of Puppy Pride. From a modest beginning to a thriving community of over 12,000 registered members, we have come a long way. But today, as I reach out to you, it's with a mixture of hope and urgency.
Puppy Pride has been more than just a platform; it has been a family, a sanctuary, and a source of joy and discovery for many in the pup play community. Your involvement has made this possible, and your continued support is the lifeline that can sustain this community we've built together.
By supporting us - whether through subscriptions, store purchases, or investing in shares - you're not just helping a community survive; you're nurturing a space where friendships are formed, where inclusivity thrives, and where the pup play spirit continues to flourish.
Let's band together to keep the tail wagging in the Puppy Pride community. Every gesture of support, big or small, writes another chapter in our story - a story of resilience, unity, and unwavering spirit.
Thank you for being part of this journey. Together, we can ensure that Puppy Pride remains a vibrant and welcoming community, with events that bring us together for years to come.
With heartfelt thanks,
