Why join our Pets site?
Membership is not mandatory, of course, but if you join, your avatar will show up on the page as a pet lover, and as we develop some member-only benefits, you’ll be first in line.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t visited our other Community sites, give them a try.

Moms has a really lovely, caring community of parents who help each other on the Discussion threads with everything from conceiving to breastfeeding to disciplining kids to dealing with MILs.

RAW is our site for New England’s amateur photographers, with monthly contests, featured photographers, professional critiques by the Globe’s photo staff, and more.

If you have an idea for a community of interest that we could launch, send your suggestion to community@boston.com. And thanks.
