July 15, 2008 09:00 ET Takes Social Networking to the Dogs... Literally

Site Enables Owners and Dogs a Place to Connect in Cyberspace

FREDERICKSBURG, VA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - It's finally happened. With today's launch of, a new free site for dog lovers and owners, social networking has literally gone to the dogs. Doggyspace is the ideal crossbreed of MySpace and YouTube, built specifically for dog lovers and their pets. The site features photo, video and networking technology that empowers dog owners to connect, form groups, and create relationships with like-minded people locally, nationally or around the globe. Doggyspace also allows dog fans to create personal profiles for their pets, set up friend networks and send messages.

Standard estimates indicate 200 million MySpace members and 75 million Facebook users, with millions more accessing and using YouTube and other similar outlets every day. According to current statistics cited by The Humane Society of the United States, thirty nine percent of households in the U.S. own at least one dog, accounting for nearly 75 million canines. When combined, these numbers show that the social networking landscape is primed for canine-specific content.

"It's well known that dog-lovers are a rabid breed, and Doggyspace was created specifically to let them share stories, photos and videos of man's best friend quickly, easily and to a very broad audience," said Doggyspace founder, Levi Thornton. "Doggyspace takes social networking to the dogs. It's fun, easy to use and, best of all, is free."

Doggyspace is ideal for pet owners that want to share stories or learn about a specific breed, recently relocated individuals looking to create friendships based on a love of dogs, or even people simply interested in finding a play date for Fido. Standard Doggyspace accounts are free. Later this year the company will launch premium accounts for a small fee, a portion of which will be donated to an animal charity of the members' choice.
