Mission Statement


Launched in 1998, our Mission as the world's first public website is to preserve and advance the unique bond between man and dog because we are for dogs, not for profit.


The dog is the only animal that renounced the wild to serve mankind. Therefore we recognize the dog as a gift from the Creator. Our Mission is to protect and preserve that God-given right to share our lives with dogs, unimpeded by the laws of Man. is by dog people, for dog people, and only for the dogs.


That is the platform upon which we stand and it remains uniquely ours as we have grown into

the NetPlaces Network. (opens in window)
