Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
Wooftown.com has opened to welcome new puppy and dog parents to its free online community of cutting-edge tools designed for great dog parents. With a health reminder system, articles on everything from getting a puppy to raising a dog, training advice, community answers, and a breed guide for the modern family, the Wooftown.com social network helps dog parents to raise healthy dogs as treasured members of the family.
Of the estimated 3 to 5 million dogs (in the U.S. alone) that are either abandoned or surrendered to animal shelters, tragically up to 2.5 million dogs are euthanized each year simply because no one wants them. Overwhelmingly, the former owners of abandoned dogs are not evil or uncaring; but generally, they are unsuspecting, ill prepared, and overwhelmed. They do not realize that the purchase of a dog is more about parenthood than ownership.
Wooftown.com seeks to create a network to elevate the attitude surrounding the responsibilities of bringing a dog into a family, hoping to assist in the outright elimination of the idea that it is socially acceptable to euthanize unwanted dogs.
The Wooftown.com community is for any dog lovers who support this cause, offering a free social network that is easy to navigate, is fully Facebook compatible, and contains vital information for new and prospective dog parents.
Working with renowned veterinarian Dr. Ian Sandler – Wooftown has developed a free and helpful online dog management tool. As with children, it is essential for dogs to receive medical protection at key times each year. Wooftown’s Reminders helps dog parents keep track of all of their dog's important “to-do's” as well as provides core health maintenance suggestions to help keep family dogs protected throughout their lives.
Questions & Answers
Wooftown’s community is the place to find the answers to any of your dog parenting questions. Additionally Wooftown has developed an algorithm that delivers questions to selected parents with a similar breed/mix who have been through the same parenting stage, maximizing the value & relevance of every answer shared.

Wooftown.com also also connects you with other parents and their dogs, allowing you to share public profile pages for you & your dogs. Connect with other dog parents on the Wooftown network profiles, complete with photo albums and comment walls.
Wooftown.com is a vibrant community website providing cutting-edge tools to help people be great dog parents. It is estimated that in the U.S. alone between 3 to 5 million dogs per year are either abandoned or surrendered to animal shelters; most often because of unrealistic expectations on the part of their former owners. Wooftown seeks to help prospective dog parents educate themselves on the magnitude of the responsibility and issues surrounding the decision to bring a dog into a family. Wooftown.com is the premier destination for anyone who recognizes that dog ownership is an outdated concept and that family dogs need dog parenting and people who embrace this responsibility and strive to provide the very best for their family dogs.
