COVID-19 Update

Pride Paws Nation

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in these difficult times. As you know, Pride Paws has been closed through the pandemic period as have so many other establishments.

We have thought for a few months that we could figure a way to reopen safely, but the more responsible solution today is to close until it is safer to reopen. Our 10 year anniversary of the store opening will be in September, and it feels like the pride we have had for these 10 years cannot be diminished. Changing lives and making strides in our young people’s lives is something we’ll get back to real soon. So hang in there folks because we are just taking a PRIDE PAUSE to reboot…reload…retool….we’ll be back stronger and better than ever! I would especially like to personally thank Hailey, Suzanne, Lynn, and Renee for all that they have done over our first 10 years. Also, special thanks to all of our great sponsors, volunteers, and participants.

Stay safe…wear masks….wash your paws….

Thank you all for the many years of helping us make this mission work. We will be back when the pandemic is defeated.

Sincerely, Joe Ritzel and the Board
