Akita Rescue & Welfare UK - ARW - Akita Rescue & Welfare - Category Index

Just joined the forum and don't know where to start?

Daunted by all the messages whizzing back and forth?

Or just overawed by the glamour of all the sparkly signatures?

Post a message here to say "hello" and introduce yourself to everyone. It can be as short or as long as you like, and even a simple "hello I'm new" will certainly trigger a flurry of welcomes.

Post pictures of your Akitas here. You can upload images to the Forum by clicking the paperclip next to the "Insert an Image File" link at the bottom of the New Topic window. We accept images in JPEG and GIF format.

Make sure your images are moderately sized (aim for them being less than 100Kb), so that users on slower connections don't get frustrated trying to view them. The system also doesn't seem to behave well if your image filename contains a space, just as a forewarning!

Please note that we reserve the right to resize images (i.e. adjust the height and width) to make them more user-friendly.

If you have something for sale that you think another member of the forum might be interested in buying, feel free to advertise it here.

Ideally please provide a picture, along with instructions on how you can be contacted.

Please note that this forum is only for private transactions - no commercial advertising will be allowed - and there should be absolutely no discussions about any financial arrangements that are anything to do with animals themselves. Anyone breaching either of these rules will immediately be kicked off the forum and banned.

Please also note that the AR&W accepts absolutely no liability whatsoever for anything advertised here. Any purchase is entirely at your own risk.
