Petsburg offers the opportunity to join a virtual community of other pet lovers, leading to real life friendships and socialization. Innovative, colorful graphics offer a virtual village with all the businesses and features a real community offers, Petsburg is the place “Resident Members” and their pets “move” to town.
Each building’s front is a portal to one or more of the features of the village. As a Resident, he will stroll the Village Green, and browse the MarketPlace or PetSpa Wellness Center for pet related products and services.
Those looking for a romantic connection can pop into the Fun Fur All Social Club and pull up a stool at the SinglesBark. A Resident may pop into the Perked Ears Coffee Shop to chat with others on the Village Talk message board, or to post pet related events in their real community on the Community Calendar. It offers its Resident Members the opportunity to experience a pet oriented small town break from their everyday lives.
With its extraordinary and colorful graphics, Petsburg is reminiscent of a quaint village where pets are the focus of life. Petsburg.com’s motto is “Come to Town and Sniff Around.”
Imagine this – after a long day at work, you and your pet sit down in front of your computer. Down on the street below your apartment thousands of strangers are bustling about. A big city can be an impersonal place, indeed.
You log in to http://www.petsburg.com and see the beautiful Village Green of your own virtual “home town”. The first thing you do is check your e-mail. You have several messages from your neighbors in Petsburg, and a few from outside the community as well. Isn’t if fun to have that unique e-mail address @petsburg.com?
Next you check in with the Petsburg Animal Society to see if there are any interesting new pet related organizations listed. The zip code function makes it very easy to search.
Your best friend, Princess, sits next to you impatiently reminding you that she wants a pretty new collar. So you stroll into the MarketPlace to shop. Then you make a quick stop at City Hall to update your Resident Profile.
You check the Community Calendar postings in the Petsburg Times newspaper and learn that there will be a Petsburg “Meet-and-Greet” on Saturday morning at the west entrance to the park. That will be fun for both you and Princess.
Now it is time for a break, so you pull up a couch in the Perked Ears Coffee Shop and visit with your friends on the Village Talk message board. One of them tells you that they just got back from a fun camp program with their two dogs and posted a great vacation review in Four Legs Will Travel. You promise to go read it, and while your there you fill out your own Vacation Exchange profile. Then you start dreaming of exchanging your apartment in New York with someone who has a beach house in San Diego for a couple of weeks. Princess will have new friends to keep her comfortably at home, and you will have someone else’s dog to play with in the surf.
OK, you’re ready now for a change. You are tired of putting effort into romantic relationships, just to find out that Princess can expect to be kicked off the bed at night. Why can’t you find someone who loves pets as much as you do? You can. So you fill out your profile for the SinglesBark dating service that is available to Petsburg.com Resident Member at no additional fee. You’ve decided to quit paying $25 dollars a month for an online dating service that offers you a bunch of frogs to kiss. You’d rather meet a guy that has a frog as a pet!
And before you leave Petsburg to have dinner, there are two more stops to make. You check on the scheduled time of next week’s virtual book signing for that new author in the PetSpa Wellness Center. You’ve heard his book on holistic animal care is really good. Then you stop into PetPrints to send an e-card to a friend in Chicago who just adopted a new cat. Your favorite PetPrints artist has some beautiful new images on her page.
Another satisfying visit to Petsburg,
your virtual home town
