VAN-PAH General Announcement


Wow! What a whirlwind of a Summer it has been. We have had so much fun, but it’s not quite over yet.

Normal VAN-PAH activities will resume, the Social, Mosh and walkies. We also have one final hurrah for the Summer as we’re heading back to the Richmond Night Market.

Thank you for the exciting Summer and all though the nights are drawing in and The Fall is almost upon us, there will be lots of entertainment and exciting events to keep your tails wagging.


VAN-PAH Puppy-Tails Social

Friday, September 6th, 8:00pm until late @ Pumpjack

Come on out for a social evening with everyone from our puppy and pet community. We’ll be meeting in the back area, that for our birthday weekend is our space for the evening. Wear your leather, rubber, fuzzy, or whatever other gear you want. Of course gear is admired but never required. Having fun is the only requirement.

DJ starts around 10pm for those that want to dance. Spread the word and lets all have a fun time.

VAN-PAH September Mosh

Join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our regular monthly mosh!

Saturday, September 7th, 2:00pm – 4:00pm @ The PumpJack, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

Whether you are going to romp, socialize or just explore, come on out and have some fun!
A mosh is an opportunity for pups and Handlers to get together and socialize. You’ll find pups romping around, playing with toys and having an all around blast while Handlers socialize and play with the puppies.

*Always remember puppy gear is admired but never required! WAGS!



September Members Only Mosh


Join us for our Members Only Mosh!

Tuesday, September 10th, 7:00-9:00pm @ PumpJack, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

We will have our regular mosh area all closed off to make it our own private space. Wear what makes your puppy wag. Normal safety rules are in effect with regard to spikes, hard soled shoes, etc. on the mats.

Nudity is allowed at this event but only on the mosh mats. When off the mat area underwear/jocks and shoes must be worn. Please keep in mind that sexual play is not permitted as we still need to follow bar rules in that regard.

Meet near the main entrance and we’ll go in as a group. Admission will be paid once everyone is assembled, (BRING CASH) Dress for the weather since this is an outdoor event. Food, shopping, and puppy shenanigans!


VAN-PAH Reminders

To continue to be Good Animals and Handlers, we do have to make just a few additional reminders.
  • Membership Reminder: It’s that time of year when the first renewals of VAN-PAH memberships are coming up. Watch your inbox for a reminder email and check out the Membership Perks page to refresh your memory about all the cool stuff you get with VAN-PAH membership!


  • Please no outside Food or Drinks be brought into Pumpjack. We have been told that some of our members have been bringing in outside food/drinks into PJ’s, as empty packaging has been found. We are sorry to mention this but our host venue work’s hard not just for us, but also it’s other patrons and we need to look after our venue.
  • When not on the Mat’s please remember to wear Shoe’s on your feet, this not only protects your paws from broken glass, various individuals from stepping on toes and of course from getting hurt. This is also a bar requirement and not something we can chose to ignore.
  • Gear is admired, but not required to attend any and all of VANP-PAH’s events.
  • Consent is not just mandatory, it is also sexy!
