Webkinz will delete all dormant pets next week; backpack display remembers students who have died by suicide

Today is Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Almost 15 years after its launch, Webkinz will kill off dormant pets starting next week.

All inactive accounts will be deleted on Oct. 1, according to Webkinz’s owner, Ganz. If you haven’t used your account in over a year, and you don’t log in before Sept. 30, your account will be deleted. 

In response to the outrage, Ganz tweeted “Webkinz don’t die. If we have to delete an account from our archives because a player has abandoned it, we put those pets back up for adoption so they can find a new, loving home.”
