Tis the Season

In this economy, a group of creative animal loving folks came up with a great idea. They’ve created a new website that enables folks to donate money to your favorite animal shelter/rescue organization. As you shop, a percentage is donated to the shelter/rescue. How cool is that?  And if you do not see your favorite listed, you can add them to the list. It is a FREE service.

When you shop through at one of the retail merchants, Adopt-A-Shelter™ is paid a commission.  Adopt-A-Shelter™ directs 100% of the donation displayed on directly to your shelter / organization. Prices, customer service and discounts are all the same at stores such as PetSmart, Best Buy and online at Amazon and others.  And you do not need to register with the Adopt a Shelter site, or login or subscribe to anything !

Easy as 1 2 3… Adopt a shelter/rescue … Go Shopping … Shelter/Rescue Gets Money

Start shopping and donating.  Before you know it, the holidays will be here…


If you need step by step instructions like I did here goes:
Go to

Under “1 Choose a Shelter to Adopt.” Click on “Search.”

It will drop down a list of shelters & rescues.

Click on your group.

If you don’t see your favorite group,  Go up to the bar and click on “Add a Shelter.” Fill out the information. It may take a day for your group to be approved.

Once you’ve clicked on your shelter, an orange square appears that says, “Shop Now.” Click on it.

A list of types of stores will appear.

Click on Amazon. Because it carries everything, Amazon appears under every category.

Once you click on the store, it takes you to the store’s website. You shop as you would ordinarily shop.

Spend lots of money! Buy cool stuff.

and when you go shopping with your dog, here’s some tips for doggie etiquette:
