We learned the term Forever Home when we joined Dogster. We knew how important it was to make a lifetime commitment to an animal when you adopted them. We knew that it was making them part of your family and you do not get rid of family when they become inconvenient. The term Forever Home, we learned here.
That may be the reason that this decision to get rid of The Community part of Dogster is so upsetting.
Everyone understands a business closing, but understanding closing down the part of the business that is its base is much harder to accept. I could be wrong, but I never saw any effort to try to keep this together to try to solve monetary issues. There could have been an increase in membership dues or something to keep up with increased costs and that would have been justifiable.
The people (and their pets) who have been loyal to Dogster/Catster all these years and continued to be here on a daily basis, feel like they are losing a home and also their family. They are scrambling to find a new place to be together but there is no place like home.
I enjoyed my almost 7 years on Dogster. I have met some wonderful people here and made friends that I would never have known. I love the spirit and support and fun and I am very sad to see it end.
slaymadia practiced willful neglect. They never did a single thing to support either their staff or ther Community or any technical aspect of this Community. They ignored all. They let things break.. they allowed spambots to overrun the forums and they did NOTHING to either answer the Help requests from Lori or John to repair things

Thank you for your friendship Flicka and family.
Very well said Bailey! It's hard to believe that anyone would choose to destroy something that is loved by so many.
I'm grateful to have made wonderful friends like you sweet girl...& I would never had a Little Sister without Dogster! I couldn't be more proud of you. :-)
Big hugs to you & your Mom!
Thank you Muffin. You were a great big sister and one of my first good friends and I learned about Dogster through you.
You hit the nail on the head Bailey! Thank you for doing all you have done!!
