Help Homeless Pets with an Easy Click

Help Homeless Pets with an Easy Click

Care2 readers are passionate about helping shelters, rescues, and pets in need. This holiday season (and after),  you can help a homeless animal with just the click of your mouse.

At you can shop to donate to your favorite shelter or rescue. It’s so easy. You just select your favorite shelter or rescue, make your purchase from a designated retailer, and every purchase earns money for the favorite shelter or rescue you choose.  Select retailers include Amazon, Wallmart, PetCo, PetSmart, Walgreens, iTunes, Lowe’s, Barnes & Noble, KMart, Foot Locker, Old Navy, Best Buy, and more. It’s free and every purchase helps homeless animals. As the holidays approach, please keep in mind. Y

The Animal Rescue Site is a proud partner of At the Animal Rescue Site, you’ll find everything from shoes, jewelry, and kitchen supplies to pet supplies and car accessories. Each item you buy funds at least 14 bowls of food for shelter animals in need. 492,408,168 bowls of food have been given to animals in need so far. While exploring the site, give an extra bowl of food to a shelter or rescue by sharing an automated facebook post or tweet.

At you can test your trivia while donating kibble to shelters. Every trivia question answered, whether right or wrong, donates 10 pieces of free kibble to a shelter pet. 1,548,418,800 pieces of kibble have been donated since 2008. That equates to 8,908,423 meals served to dogs and cats while they wait for their forever homes.

Lisa’s Marketplace at includes pet products that I personally use with my own dogs Sanchez and Gina. All profits from Lisa’s Marketplace support Through a Dog’s Ear Shelter/Rescue Programs. Currently donated canine calming music is increasing adoption rates at 1,500 facilities world-wide and growing daily! The marketplace includes a Canine Massage instructional DVD by a Veterinarian, calming aromatherapy products, supplements that benefit senior dogs, biodegradable waste bags,  beautiful “Advice from a Dog” cards, and more.

And don’t forget you can click to aid in animal rescues (and other causes) right here on Care2!

It doesn't take much time or effort to make a difference in a shelter animal's life. It will be the best couple of minutes in your day. And it shows that you don't have even invest any money. These are great suggestions that just about anyone can do from the comfort of their own homes.

Thanks for this article, there are some sites listed here that I was not aware of before. I'm going to be checking them out for sure!
