      Animal Concerns Community (Animalconcerns.org) will cease operation at
      the end of August.

      Animalconcerns.org has existed under other names, most notably the
      Animal Rights Resource Site (ARRS), since the 1990s. In those days,
      ARRS was _the_ leader for animal rights on the internet. For many
      years, ARRS and Animalconcerns.org were the number one hit when
      conducting an internet search for "animal rights."

      Over the years, every animal rights organization has established an
      internet presence requiring less need for a website such as
      Animalconcerns.org. Further developments in news distribution in
      recent years have also led to a decline in popularity for
      Animalconcerns.org. Many users on the internet prefer to spread their
      news through corporate-owned social networks rather than websites or
      email distribution. User preferences on the internet have changed, but
      Animalconcerns.org did not keep pace.

      The Animalconcerns.org website will not be updated after this post and
      will cease operation in the near future. The Facebook and Twitter
      pages may continue under different ownership, if interest continues.

      Many thanks to Josh Knauer and Envirolink for providing the animal
      rights activists with a community and a vehicle to disseminate
      information to all who sought it. Josh has helped us many times with
      technical matters, hosting, and many other issues that would take a
      long list to display.

      And thanks to all the volunteers for the old ARRS and
      Animalconcerns.org. Thanks go to Don Graft for the old ARRS. Many
      other volunteers will remain nameless, though in the last few years,
      it was primarily three of us who kept Animalconcerns.org running (by
      first name): Allen, Barb, and Dar.

      And finally, thanks go out to all the people who found
      Animalconcerns.org useful and who supported us over the years. That's
      what made it all worthwhile.
