New Banners and Boxes That Link to Your Cat, Dog, and Bunny lists
Last month, we brought you the news that we’d launched new sizes of graphics you can use on your website (or any site!) to link to your Adopt-a-Pet.com pet list. This month, we’ve launched additional designs for those of you who want cat-only, dog-only, and bunny-only links. Check them out here: http://www.adoptapet.com/cgi-bin/shelter/index.cgi/listing_links
Have You Registed on PetsforPeople.com Yet?
Purina’s support of animal welfare takes the form of Animal Welfare Support programs for non-profit organizations, described in detail on www.PetsforPeople.com. Their programs such as; Pets for Seniors, Pro Plan® Rally to Rescue® and the Purina ONE® Pet Welfare Program are dedicated to providing support for local animal welfare organizations in their efforts to find homes for adoptable animals.
Occasionally the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company may have food donations available in your area. When you register your organization on www.PetsforPeople.com you will be automatically considered for any food donations that become available near you. During 2010, Purina donated more than $13 million in pet food and litter. In addition, should your organization be affected by a natural disaster, Purina may be able to provide food to help feed your organization’s animals during your time of need.

We Think This Is Cool…Free Classical Music For Your Shelter or Rescue
Through a Dog’s Ear Shelter Program offers two hours of clinically tested classical piano music free to dog advocacy groups, such as animal shelters and dog rescues. The music provided is Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volumes I and II. The qualifying factor for free CDs is a non-profit facility that temporarily houses five or more dogs for adoption or placement that has a music system of moderate quality or better.
Research has shown that classical music has the strongest relaxation effect on shelter dogs when compared to other musical styles. Based on these findings and their love of dogs, Through a Dog’s Ear believes that calming music should be in every shelter in America.

And, of course…
As always, we thank the wonderful, pet-loving people at Purina and Bayer Animal Health for supporting all of us in our mission and making Adopt-a-Pet.com a free service!
