An Open Letter to Our Place to Paws Readers

Dear Friends:

Our Place to Paws has been online for a year and a half now, and we've so enjoyed providing both information about animals and a fun place for people to read our columns, view reader photos, research fun animal art projects for kids, and more.

The Web is huge, and technology advances quickly, and we're just a small little site hoping to offer a place where people can enjoy their love for animals online. We can't afford a lot of the fun things other sites have, and unfortunately we haven't had a huge readership...we have a steady number of visitors each month, but the number has remained small. Although we occasionally get new subscriptions to our monthly e-newsletter, they have fallen off, and we're not getting many entries to our online contests (doesn't anyone want a free T-shirt?).

We'd love to keep Our Place to Paws online, but at this point your editor is basically drawing money from her own pocket each month to keep it going. She'll be happy to continue doing that if there is enough interest...but if few people are reading the newsletter and the site, there will come a time when she has to take down our beloved little project.

If you are interested in keeping Our Place to Paws alive, please let us know...send us an email, post comments on the blog, send in your animal photos or enter our Cats vs. Dogs essay contests.

We hope to be here for you...and the animals...for as long as you want us to be.

- Paws
