Pitches, Requests, Queries
I receive many pitches, requests, ideas, and queries from readers, PR folks, pet bloggers, and others. If you have questions, please e-mail at I will try to answer them quickly. I must let you know that I love this blog, and while I spend a lot of time here, I do unplug every so often. I like spending time out in the field researching blog posts. I also like unwinding with family and friends. So, it may take a day or two to return your e-mail.

Link Exchanges and Blogroll Requests
If you like my site, I’m pleased! Please feel free to link to it.

Guest Blogging
If you want to be a guest blogger, please know that I’m fussy. As I said, I love this site, and I care about the content. I like well written researched pieces that focus on animal welfare and pet care. I’m always interested in learning about people who are making a difference in the world of animal rights. If, however, you want to plug a product or a company that brings me to

Advertising Sales
As you can see, I accept some advertising. I generally run ads only from pet-related companies. Most ads cost $100 per month. See the boxed ads on the left and right hand sides of this blog? If you commit to a six-month run, the price drops to $70 per month for six months for a total of $420.  The best deal is the annual rate of $60 a month for a total of $720. Larger ads cost more. I look forward to hearing from you.

Link Ads
Link ads embedded in posts must be pet-related. For instance, I wrote a story and mentioned purchasing pet supplies. The link directed readers to a pet supply store. I usually have two links per post, and the cost is $200–or $100 per link.

Payments can be sent to my PayPal account. Whenever, I accept payment for an ad, I must let my readers know that this is a paid or sponsored post.
