Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June. It encompasses a month-long series of events and celebrations including pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, and concerts. Additionally, memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

To support Pride Month, all daycare proceeds on Friday, June 30th will go directly to The Family Equality Council, a 501(c)(3) charity whose “mission is to ensure that everyone has the freedom to find, form, and sustain their families by advancing equality for the LGBTQ+ community.”
We would kindly ask that in order for your payment to go towards this cause that you pay cash on the day of service or remit a check made out to The Family Equality Council. A locked cash box with envelopes and a pen will be left out. Please put your cash or check in an envelope with your name, your dog’s name and PRIDE written on the envelope.
Daycare rates for cash or check payments are as follows:
- Full Day: $38
- Half Day: $28
