Ms Puppy UK 2023
Hi I'm Scruff, I am the snoot behind the BarkAgainst campaign. Diversity and inclusion are a big part of what makes the petplay community fantastic; but we still have a long way to go. I myself was affected by misconceptions about what the petplay community was like; but am now a proud and loud member of the puppyplay community! My aim is to listen and to educate on matters of inclusion. Feel free to message me on any matter regarding diversity and I will endeavour to reply at my earliest convenience.
Don't be scared to say hi at events and tell me what it is you think our community needs to support each other in an ever changing world!

Cisgender female, pansexual, closed relationship (married), Caucasian
Hey I'm Dawn, I am really passionate about making the petplay community as equal and inclusive as possible with no discrimination around. As a cisgender female I have faced discrimination towards me and other petplayers because of our gender, relationship status etc. I want to make more events open to everyone and have access points so petplayers with disabilities can attend the venue. I love looking after/supporting people so am happy to talk, support and work with other people, so if you spot my rainbow hood at meets feel free to approach me and say hello.

Hello, I'm Minty a Fox that is also a pup on rare occasions! I am an ambassador for #BarkAgainst and I help run The Howling in NC, USA.
Bringing awareness and opening events to welcome creatures of all kinds is very important to me as someone that is brown and AFAB. I want to extend this help to others so that they feel included in the pet play community and to give tips to event organizers on how to make everyone feel welcomed.
I'm open for anyone to message me on any topics regarding inclusivity and diversity, whether it's to vent or get resource tips for events.
