Wow! It was a lot of work protesting the Nutro ads that were on the Vet Blog and are on Dogster, but we are setting down our picket signs for good now! Go here if you hadn't known about the protest before this.
Here are some of the questions we asked, and Ted R.'s answers:
1. Why was there silence for a while on this issue?
We didn't know what exactly you (Dogster & Catster members) wanted of us, so it took us a while to figure that out. Also, not many people wrote to me personally, originally.
2. When are the ads coming down?
The Nutro ads are coming off the Vet Blog at the end of June, and the contract for the rest of Dogster is up for them at the end of the year.
3. Will there be healthier pet food ads coming soon?
We are currently in talks with an excellent pet food company that uses human-grade ingredients.
4. Some of us have written a list of nationally recognized pet food & product companies. Would you please take them into consideration for future ads?
I will personally make sure our sales staff reviews them and cross-references them with companies that advertise online.
All in all, we're pleased with how things went! :) Some pets are going to continue protesting through the end of the year, until the Nutro ads are off the whole Dogster/Catster site. We're not, though. We're going to get back to the fun part of being Catster members! >^..^<
