Adopt A Shelter- a new way to support shelter animals

If you have been listening to my radio show PAWsitive Radio- All things Pets! you likely know how important the topic of supporting animal shelters and rescue organizations is to me. There are many ways to support your local shelters. And it doesn't always involve writing a check.You can volunteer, donate food or other supplies shelters need. We often donate a portion of our booksale proceeds from On Toby's Terms to different shelters and rescue organizations.

Toby the Dog and star of On Toby's Terms and Toby the Pet Therapy Dog & His Hospital Friends. Toby raised more than $10,000 for local animal charities and engaged more than 10,000 people on his kindness mission.  Giving back and PAWing it Forward can be fun, creative and makes a big difference!

 Chris Ruben the Founder and CEO of shared how Adopt A Shelter works.  It is a FREE and Easy way for shelters to do fundraising and it is fast!  In fact, EVERY time you shop online using website, you can earn more money for your favorite animal charity. When you shop through at one of their online retail merchants (the online mall), Adopt-A-Shelter™ is pays a commission. That means that  Adopt-A-Shelter™ directs 100% of the donation displayed on directly to your shelter / organization or your organization of choice.  What a fantastic concept. Shopping made easy, and, it supports animal rescues and shelters at the same time.
