We have some very sad news
The Virtual Kennel Club is going to close.
It is not going to happen immediately and it is not going to happen overnight. It will be a staged process and we will do everything we can to make sure that you can keep your VKC Pets after the VKC has closed.
This is the roadmap to our closure
31 May 2023:
The dog parks will close for sales. BUT, the Clinic will remain open (until the end of 2024). There will be no more sales of VKC Pets from the parks or from Marketplace. The Rehoming park at Turing Isle will also close.
1st October 2023:
From this point onwards, all updated/reclaimed pets will be copyable.
But, the Series I pets will no longer be transferable.
If you wish to transfer your older, Series I VKC Pets to a different avatar as their forever home, you must do it before 1st October 2023. There will be no further transfers after this date. There will be no exceptions. Not even from Enrico.
Given that the Series I pets are now very dated, and very few transfers take place now, we think that four months is plenty of time to make transfers if you wish to.
31 December 2024:
The Clinics will close at Midnight on 31 December 2024.
After that there will be no way to reclaim lost or broken pets. But, by then we will have made a lot of announcements and you will have copyable pets in your inventory.
The VKC has been enormous fun and we will take away some very fond memories of what you, and we, have done. Some of you taught some amazingly cool tricks, took some fabulous photos and leaped into action in our games and events. Thank you all for the enthusiasm and joy that you brought to our community and our pets.
