Animal Menagerie in the Inland Empire

Can you think a better name for an establishment than “THE MENAGERIE?”  The Menagerie has graced downtown Riverside for over 25 years, and next weekend, you can attend a petplay event with us, with pup performances, raffles… and our very own subMissAnn giving a fabulous class on ponyplay.


Proceeds from the raffles (and suggested door donation) are being split 50/50 to fund the travels of the Inland Empire Leather Ambassador and of LA Pup Tony Bark, who will be competing at the International Puppy/Trainer contest this July. 

A pop-up shop in the back by Kilted Bros will have tails for sale in all sorts of colors and styles.  Check out the Facebook event page here for all of the details.

We hope to see you there!

Leather Petplay, this weekend in OC!

If you don’t have any plans this weekend, why not head over to the Frat House in Orange County for an all-critter leather night?

The Facebook event page is here.  This is a 21+ event, but good news: no cover charge!

Edit: The Frat House is the last standing gay bar in Garden Grove, according to the LA Times.  Please show them your love… they have many great events.  We’ll keep you updated on future critter events!

PetPlay Podcast!

After two weeks of competitions, we know a lot of our pets are tired, and so we invite you to grab a cup of tea, kick up your feet, and relax while you listen to a petplay podcast!

This week on We’re Not Together with Zack and Haley, our own subMissAnn and Tony Bark sat down to talk about puppy play and pony play.

You can listen on Apple Podcasts here or on Soundcloud here.

DomCon Pet Show

This weekend is another pony show.  If you missed Derby Day, don’t despair; there are still ribbons to be won this Saturday!

The Copper Award goes to the Outstanding Trainer/Handler, the most promising new Pony receives the Horseshoe, the best Sportsmanship folk is honored, and every participant is a winner with a medallion.


Not a pony?  Not a problem!  There is also a pet show just before the pony show, at 12:30 pm, in the same room.  Back-to-back pony and critter shows?!  What could be better!

Another hunt over!

What a weekend!  We had a lot of new faces show up to our spring fox hunt; this year, we had four hounds, two foxes, a pony, and, surprisingly, a kitty!  A good time was had by all… especially the foxes, both of whom got away.  Good job, guys!

Our next update will hopefully have some pictures of our fabulous Pet Park at IMsLBB.  It was a very big weekend for us.  Take some time to rest, because remember, the Derby is fast approaching!  (Click here for info, and to purchase your tickets in advance!)

Pre-Hunt Social! Public Munch!

If you are interested in attending the spring fox hunt this year, please attend our social so we can give you the 411 on how we run our event.

Note that this year, the fox hunt coincides with IMsLBB.  If you are in San Jose on Saturday, be sure to attend subMissAnn’s ponyplay class.  If you’re staying in Los Angeles, though, the fox hunt might be right for you.

This year’s fox hunt takes place at Heaton Flats.  Information on the hunt itself is here, but we do ask that people attend the public social if they want to participate.  And why wouldn’t you want to come and carbo load with us on pizza before the big hunt?? 

The social will be held at Delicious Pizza on Adams Ave. at 7:30 this Tuesday, April 9th.  Click here for the Facebook event page.  Bring your appetite!
