I just signed up with a social network for pet owners. It’s called Zootoo.com and it’s a place where pet owners can create a journal to discuss their pets, connect with other pet lovers, discuss pet news or even launch pet groups or announce pet related events.
I’ve joined a few pet and or dog related forums and groups since we got Midnight last November and I’ve enjoyed connecting with other pet owners.
One thing that I like about Zootoo is that there are lots of groups specific to type or breed of pet as well as groups that have been created for pet lovers in specific areas. I joined a couple of the dog and Labrador Retriever groups right away.
Sometime over the weekend I’ll add to my personal page by posting photos of Midnight as well as pictures of my two box turtles. Then I might go around and look for other members that own Labs or box turtles and connect with them.
The only, minor, problem that I had with the site was registering. I’m in Canada and registration requires that you list a zip code. I’m fairly sure after reading the terms of service that membership is open to most people with the exception of a few countries so it would be nice if they fixed this requirement. As a result of having to put down the only US zip code that I know by heart (90210) it looks like I’m from Beverly Hills California so group suggestions etc don’t work well for me.
If you have pets and want to start a page about your pets and connect with other pet lovers check out Zootoo.com.
