Shopping for a cause: Adoptashelter for abandoned and neglected pets

During bad economic times one the first things financially strapped people give up is their beloved pets. If they've lost homes or can barely feed their family, they certainly won't be able to feed their animals, so off they go to shelters. As a result, animal shelters across the country are feeling the strain and in desperate need of funding.  One wonderful way of donating to these shelters without actually having to donate any money yourself, is by using for all your on-line shopping needs.  It costs you and the shelters absolutely nothing, plus there's no registration, no creating an account and no fees.

The process is actually quite simple: go to their website, choose a shelter from one of two drop down menus, then you can shop away at the many different participating stores including Best Buy, Old Navy, Petsmart, Petco, Orbitz, Itunes, Walmart, Lowes and many other well known, and lesser known merchants. Those merchants then pay adoptashelter a commission for every purchase made through the adoptapshelter website, and the best part is that 100% of that amount goes directly to the shelter of your choice.
