As you are here, you were most likely looking for information about shifting or therianthropy. In all likelihood you were looking for help and support. If so, you have come to the right place.
This site is, first and foremost, a support network for therians, animal-people and those who suffer from species dysphoria and dysmorphia. We respect and treat each other as equals, regardless of age or experience.
Need help? Just ask one of our members or make a forum introducing yourself. All of us would be happy to assist. We're always open to suggestions on improvement.
All are welcome here, be they therians, vamps, or other; curious Non-Kin are especially welcome. We don't bite. We'll be happy to help you in any way we can. Of course, all theriotypes are welcome here too.
A therian, or a therianthrope, is someone who identifies as human and (a non human) animal on a spiritual, emotional, metaphorical, mental and/or psychological level.
Please Note: This is a site, not a democracy, issues and problems can and will be discussed, but final word still goes to the admins. We encourage members to actively post on the forums and join in with discussions. Going off topic is okay, but topics with an (S) in the title are regarded as serious, meaning it would be greatly appreciated if the topic was stuck to until the creator of the forum is satisfied they have gotten the responses or answers they were looking for. Freedom of speech exists, but please do not abuse it. Refer to the rules for more information.
If you came here to vent your drama addiction, there are numerous role-play sites. Go ther.

Note: Yes, I am well aware that the site tagline is a little dramatic, but it was put in place by the first siteowner and is now semi-traditional, so replacing it would probably take a lot of debate. The same goes for the inaccuracy of the word 'pack' - we're not a pack. But the name remains.
If you don't want a membership but want to take a look around, various pages can be accessed without one, such as Staff, Bestiary, History and Mythology, Meets and Howls, Guestbook, FAQ and Therian Slang Pages.

Our policy on physical shifting is that we allow discussion of it, but if you are claiming ability to p-shift or any other supernatural powers, evidence will be required if you want to be taken seriously - extraordinary claims call for extraordinary evidence.
Failure to keep these rules will result in a warning, while serious or repetitive offenders will have their accounts terminated.
