Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    Thanks for that bit of info. Wow, I knew people were heartless, but stealing dogs? That upsets me just to think about it. What has the world come to?

    It certainly IS very scary to think there are people out there who plan to harm your dog or take them away for their own greedy purposes. I am glad you posted this, Gray, since there are many good, common sense tips in the article about keeping your dog safe. We sometimes leave Jack in our locked car after a beach trip or when it is too cold to bring him with us to a cafe. But, we never leave him where we cannot see HIM in the car. Otherwise, we wouldn't feel comfortable. Also, everyone should keep in mind that for the vast majority of dogs, being stolen isn't as much of a threat to them as the things we expose them to in everyday life. Think of this as you would airplane crashes; it does happen, but you're far more at risk on the freeway every day than in the air. On a daily basis, keeping our dogs on leash, inside when we're not home and not leaving them unattended/unwatched even at a dog park are even better preventative measures. And, I agree about the recall!
