Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster 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 Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com 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 elsewhere 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.
Sad day at the Merced shelter. We need action!!
This is a great opportunity to make a difference for some pups. If you've ever thought of fostering, or even donating to a shelter, this would be the perfect time. Merced is stuffed, and I mean STUFFED, with dogs. They are putting multiple groups of dogs and cats down every week! The rescue coordinator said they have put more dogs down in the past few weeks than ever before.
These pups need help.
There's a little tiny wirehaired terrier with Demodex that could be saved if someone donated for her medical costs. There's also a Dogue de Bordeaux (French mastiff) mix that has the same condition and is in grave danger of being euthanized. His name is Freddy Fender.
There are so many dogs that will be euthanized today, and so many more on lists for the next group! I really have not seen this situation before where a shelter works so hard and has this many animals just streaming in to the point where they're having to euthanize multiple times a week.
If you can do anything, even if you see a dog or cat on the list that you like that isn't in danger, please donate or try to help them out. If they're not on the list now, they will be soon!
This was posted on dogster so that's why it's about dogs, but there are many cats too! So you can help them too! If you'r looking for a new pet, please check their site! Poor pups and kitties are in big trouble, they Need help!
