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.


How do I join foxhoundville without joining dogster?

I do not need the mega information that dogster provides, but just the meat and potatoes of the dog breed I am asking about. As a foster home for pound dogs, we care for many different breeds and we like to know about them.

    If foxhoundville is a Dogster Group, then you have to join in order to belong. I don't think there's any way around that, but you could contact the help desk at dogster to be absolutely sure. Honestly, though, even if you become a regular Dogster member, you don't need to participate in anything other than the group that you want to be part of. You don't have to be involved in anything else. Also, in my experience with Dogster, emails are very minimal, maybe just a few per year that arrive telling you about new features on Dogster, and even with those, you can opt out at any time. Also, you have the added bonus as a member of accessing the forums, which have special areas for fostering and networking for foster homes, so you might end up being interested in that, too. Hope that helps.
