Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Retailers and consumers are gearing up for the all-important holiday shopping season. Though faced with political and fiscal uncertainties, the National Retail Federation still expects holiday sales to increase over 4%, and Shop.org expects online sales to increase 12% over 2011. Online retail sales have been growing rapidly for years, a trend likely to continue with the growth in mobile devices.
“Whether you are shopping for Sweetest Day items, Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving travels or Holiday gifts, every purchase you make through AdoptAShelter.com will earn a donation for the animal charity of your choice,” says Chris Ruben, founder and CEO. “Our free and easy-to-use cash-rewards mall features over 475 top-name merchants in every imaginable product and service category. It's a great fund-raising tool for animal shelters, rescue and adoption groups because every animal lover can do their part simply by shopping online.

AdoptAShelter.com is pleased to announce it's new Link Creator, making it even easier for animal welfare organizations to benefit from their cash-rewards mall.

The badge-links are designed to be incorporated into existing websites and blogs. “Shelters who have already created badge-links to their shelter shopping pages are seeing immediate results,” says Ruben. “Now supporters are just one Click away from making every purchase count.”
October and November are busy months for animal charities as most are having major fund-raising events, from Fur Balls to Pet Costume contests to Pet Walks. “We are reaching out to shelters nationwide to introduce our new Link Creator and share our How It Works video,” says Ruben. “These fund-raising gatherings allow shelters to remind their communities, staff, supporters and volunteers about AdoptAShelter.com and how easy it is to use... Just Shop to Donate!”
