5. ADOPT-A-PET

Adopt-a-Pet is North America’s largest online, searchable database for cats, dogs as well as a range of other animals who need homes. There is also the facility to search the same 13,000 animal shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, etc. It is a shame, however, that a website promoting the care and companionship of all animals is funded (in part) by Bayer and Purina. Both Bayer and Purina test on animals (Bayer conducts animal testing themselves, whereas Purina outsources their testing to third parties), in addition to which Purina doesn’t offer vegan (i.e. cruelty-free) food products for companion animals. Nevertheless, Adopt-a-Pet’s third funder is North Shore Animal League America (NSALA), the world’s largest no-kill animal adoption and rescue centre.
