Animal Ark received some rather startling statistics from Amazon Smile this past week. Thanks to our faithful donors choosing Friends of Animal Adoptions as their charity of choice, we received a quarterly donation total of over $400. Since the program began, Animal Ark has been the recipient of over $5,000 in donations.
$400 buys a lot of cat and dog food. $5,000 can cover the medical costs of our neediest animals, like Houser who was featured in a recent blog post. You might not think the “mere pennies” that result from an Amazon Smile purchase amount to much, but in a COVID world where online commerce grows every day, these statistics prove those small donations have huge impact.
Donating via Amazon Smile couldn’t be easier:
- Visit smile.amazon.com. It’s just like shopping on amazon.com.
- Sign in. Simply use your existing Amazon credentials. If you don’t have an account, you can create a new one.

- Start shopping! After you’ve chosen your charity, your shopping experience will be the same as it is on the Amazon website. And there’s no extra cost for you at checkout! Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to Animal Ark.
- Spread the word! Once you’ve checked out, Amazon makes it easy to spread the news with your friends and family by giving you an option to share on Facebook and Twitter.
