Today YouPet serves as a one-stop shop for all things pet related
Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) September 13, 2009
YouPet.com has grown rapidly since its inception because of pet owners and users who have created profiles for themselves and their pets on the site. "What started out as a small group of pet enthusiasts wishing to share photos with family and friends, has grown into an informative & fun site with a dedicated group of 200,000 pet lovers", said Aaron Weitzman, CEO and founder of YouPet.
Almost every pet type is represented including everything furry from dogs to rabbits, reptiles to cats. Profiles have a variety of features, including a diary, photo gallery, and video upload capability. Pet owners can also fill out information about their pet's personality, including favorite toy and energy level. Other "pets" and their owners can add other pets and owners as friends, comment on their profile, or give them a treat. Profile sign-up for owners and their pets is free and takes less than a minute. Once a profile is created, users can begin uploading photos and videos of their pets and connecting with other users.
This community of pet owners has become so successful, they now hold regular contests in partnership with Dogswell®, where the weekly winner receives a $100 prize package of food and treats to their door. Their popularity has also helped YouPet.com grow into more than just a pet social community. "Today YouPet serves as a one-stop shop for all things pet related," Weitzman said. Users can now play pet-themed games, participate in forums, and become educated on pet health and behavior. YouPet.com also offers pet-related news where users can comment and share their thoughts, along with a detailed section on different types of dog breeds.
For users looking for a different twist on an online social community, YouPet.com allows pet lovers and owners to come together and share the passion for their pets in a welcoming, positive medium. Pet owners from around the world now have a dynamic forum to meet and communicate with others who view their pets as a member of their family.
