Bay-PAH Virtual Panel and Social Hour

Woofs, Meows, and Salutations, wonderful puppy community! Purrs and virtually rubs up against all of you

Please join us on Thursday, June 4th at 7PM (Pacific Time) for a panel and social hour! We have selected several pups in the community to share why they enjoy the world of puppy, reminisce on old times, and share how they’ve been pupping out in this strange new world we find ourselves in.

Details on how to join the event will be posted beforehand on the Bay-PAH telegram channel. Stay tuned!

Meow~~~Awoooooooo! <3

Puppy Solidarity During These Ruff Times

Hello Everyone!

Last week, The Governor of California issued an executive order asking residents throughout the entire state to shelter-in-place, causing all of our lives to be affected. Through this tough time, The Board Members of BAY-PAH are wanting to reach out to assure you, that we are still here for you!

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, BLFC has been postponed until Halloween, and while this is a delay in our schedule of events, BAY-PAH still intends to be there on the rescheduled dates!”

While this executive order is in place, we recommend you stay home and minimize public social contact as per direction from the World Health Organization, and Center for Disease Control.

We also would like to invite you to stay in touch with us, via our chat located, on Telegram.

Chat: in app @baypah or https://t.me/baypah

Remember to keep those heads up and tails wagging! Don’t worry pups, we may not be able to go to the puppy park right now, and have to stay indoors, but as soon as this is over, we can go out and go on all the adventures together! We shall get through this!

You are all an amazing community, that we are honored to be part of! If you need to talk to anyone, we are all only a chat and PM away!

Puppies, Kittens, and COVID-19

Meows, Barks, and other Salutations, gentle Bay-PAH folk –

As you are no doubt aware, the COVID-19 outbreak is a dynamic and evolving situation. As we move closer to BLFC, the Bay-PAH board of directors continues to monitor the situation. At this point in time, we intend to move forward with our BLFC events as planned.

I am sure you have many questions. I’ll meow about some of them:

What Bay-PAH is doing

The health and safety of our attendees is of paramount concern to us. We will be keeping up-to-date with CDC prevention recommendations and the WHO’s advice.

We are staying up-to-date on Reno’s municipal response, Nevada’s state-wide response, GSR’s local response as well as that of BLFC coordinators. Our current decision is to go on with the show, so long as BLFC itself is happening.

We are concerned with the stigma against those who have recently traveled, who are of Asian descent, are emergency or health care providers, or are in any other group who is being hurt by this stigma. Bay-PAH will not tolerate any such behavior toward our guests, our volunteers, or our staff.

What you can do

Wash your paws!

Stay home if you aren’t feeling well!

Keep up-to-date on on advice from the CDC and WHO.

And please remember:

Everyone deserves compassion and respect. We are all on this planet together. COVID-19 doesn’t care who it infects, and we are all potentially at risk. If we help each other stay informed and take appropriate precautions, care for each other, and stand against stigma and predjustice, then we can better protect each other, our communities, and ourselves.

Bay-PAH needs your help!

Bay-PAH is a 100% volunteer-run organization. Without your generous support, these awesome Bay-PAH events would not be possible.

As we approach our fifth(!!?) anniversary of Bay-PAH, I look back with awe at how much this community has come together and grown. You guys are awesome!

But we need help. We need some of the extraordinary members of this community to step up and join us in navigating this journey.

Want to help us out? That would be amazing! Please see here for more details: Bay-PAH Needs Your Help!

Please either contact us on Telegram, or use our Contact Form to let us know you want to volunteer!

Thank you! Awwoooooooo~~~~(meow) :3
