We strive to be transparent and genuine when it comes to being given a product and/or fees in exchange for articles or product promotion. If a blog post is sponsored, a disclosure statement will be made at the beginning of the post. If it is a sponsored Tweet, the hashtag #ad will be included in the tweet. Disclosures will also be made with Facebook posts, and Instagram if we are receiving a free product or monetary compensation for promoting a company.


Affiliate Programs

Pets Abs is a participant in several affiliate programs, which is designed to provide a means for the sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to products. And we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.


Additional Notes on Product Promotion

We would never promote anything we don’t believe in. That’s deeply against of mission! Many items we receive are donated to local animal rescue groups for their use and for fundraising auction items. There are costs to running a blog; graphic design, software, shipping, customs brokerage fees and time spent writing and researching. And coffee. LOTS of it.
