One way to "earn" free/discounted pet food:

Jet.com has a % back feature called "Jet Cash". When you link from Jet.com to participating sites you earn a % of the purchase in "Jet cash" to spend at Jet.com. Certain linked sites are very high percentage -- i.e. 20% to 50%. Jet Cash will be available for use 30 days after you link via jet.com, make a purchase, AND send your order confirmation email to Jet.com (just make sure the email addy you use is the same for each site to avoid issues).

We built Pupfy, a dog adoption platform app. it's FREE. Here's the link if you guys need or want to share it with others.

I'm assuming that for a lot of people, it's more about saving money whenever possible. I can afford to take care of pets - I've adopted a dozen or so pets in the last decade - but it still helps when there are deals on adoption fees, food, bedding, and other pet items.

That said, I do agree with your statement to a great extent. A pet is a multi-year commitment and may take a chunk of most people's finances, so that is something to keep in mind. Whenever I am planning to adopt a new pet, I do think about all the costs - including possibly unexpected medical costs - associated with having a pet.

if the adoption fees are keeping you from getting a pet, then you probably shouldn't get a pet.
maybe a pet rock.

pets cost money over their entire lives. plan accordingly.

Clear the Shelters is today! Please keep in mind that:

1. Pets are family members and are not disposable. Just because the dogs and cats are free, doesn't mean that you should adopt on a whim.

2. A well taken care of pet is expensive! Even though adoption fees are waived, annual shots, blood work, and physical exams are necessary to keep your new family member healthy and happy.

3. Good food, toys, beds, litter, scratching posts, crates and all of the necessary items that we need are an ongoing expense.

4. If you don't have time to love and care for a pet, don't get one just because the adoption fees are waived.

Keeping all this in mind, if you want a great Kitty or Dog, visit your local animal control and pick up your new best friend!

I wish they were more organized and let you search for specific breeds across ALL areas in the United States. There are certain breeds I'd be interested in for their uniqueness.

I have a fish in my aquarium that kills all of the cool looking fish I've tried adding to my aquarium. The problem is that this fish has a life span of about 10 years and its been in my tank for about 5 years now. I just want it to die so I can make a new aquarium of fish. lol. Should I own more pets? lol

Thanks for posting... If you have to give up a pet, please choose a no kill shelter or an adoption posting like a rescue site...

PETA will kill the animal, almost always within 24 hours...

oh god. the misleading peta articles.

what do you plan on doing with sick, old, injured, or plain unwanted animals? where do you plan on getting the money?

and what do you think the no-kill shelters do with animals that nobody adopts?

I have no doubt it's true that PETA does as much good as they do harm. I'm just fairly certain that the reality is somewhere in between the extremes.
