NorthEast Ohio Furs
The NorthEast Ohio Furs (also known as NEO Furs) is a regional social group focused in the northern eastern Ohio, including the Cleveland, Akron, Canton, and Youngstown areas.
Active NEO Furs Communities
There is a main Facebook group for NEO Furs that was created in September 2008 by JH Myshkin. It was later handed over to KeeperOfDreams and July 2012 and is now administered by KeeperOfDreams and Alaina Rose (ObliviousAlly).
There are also an assortment of groups specific to certain areas in NorthEast Ohio.
In addition, there are splinter groups from the main NEO Furs group that vary in activity.
There is a Telegram group, administered by Alaina Rose.
The Tumblr blog is a 'hub' for links to the many different NEO Furs communities across social media. Created in February 2017 and administered by Alaina Rose after having individuals contact her and being surprised that there were any other furries locally. The blog serves as a host for a large list of links for both northeast Ohio-based furry communities, as well as links for communities and regions that overlap with the area NEO Furs is based in.
The blog is also used as a public place to share events to, in the cases of some individuals not using certain social media websites.
neofurs.org now redirects to the Tumblr blog.
The @neofurs Twitter username is unrelated to the NEO Furs community and the @FursofNEO Twitter username is defunct.
Defunct NEO Furs Communities
The mailing list was established in 2004 for furries in northeast, including Cleveland, Akron, Canton and surrounding areas. The list was for general discussion, local event planning, and announcements of interest to those in or near enough to the area.
The mailing list has been administered by Alaina Rose since the early 2006, but is primarily defunct.
The NEO Furs forums were initially developed in the early 2007 so that members would have a place to plan meets without cluttering the mailing list. Once the forums came online, the members have made a total of 14,534 posts in 876 threads, and currently have 170 members registered. Unfortunately the forums were lost and had to be rebuilt in Feb 2008. In less than a week, membership was at 74 members with 1929 posts and 134 threads.
As of February 2011, Our members have made a total of 61,507 posts in 3,275 threads.
We currently have 358 members registered.The most users online at one time was 24 on 05-26-2010 at 08:06
Sometime around 2009, an 'alternate forum' called 'Yellow Dog Club' was created, according to this NEO Furs FurAffinity journal.
Currently, the forums are located at the same address, but attempts at reviving them have fallen flat. The site is maintained by KermodeBear.
There is a NEO Furs LiveJournal community administered by Alaina Rose.
In 2009, NEOFurs started the Furnival convention in Akron as an extension of earlier picnics.
