If you want to arm yourself with the knowledge to give your dog or cat a happier life, and bring you more joy than you ever imagined… you’re in the right place.
Here at Petful® (formerly Pets Adviser), we have lots of vet-approved pet information about health, behaviors, training and grooming. Our writers include veterinarians Dr. Debora Lichtenberg, VMD, and Dr. Pippa Elliott, BVMS, MRCVS, among other experts.
3 Things We’re Doing Right Now
- We are saving pets’ lives. Our pet food recall alerts, as well as our timely articles about health and safety, are putting vital, life-saving information in the hands of people with pets.
- We go beyond “fluff.” Sure, we love cute photos, but we also aren’t afraid to put time and resources into difficult topics that affect your life. For example, our 5-day special report “Gunned Down: Why Are So Many Dogs Being Shot by Police?” made a splash in 2013 and was read by various lawmakers. It went on to be used as part of legally mandated training of the Atlanta Police Department. See our other special reports here.
- We truly want to make a difference. We created Petful because working to improve animal welfare is very important to us. Each year, we donate thousands of dollars to deserving animal charities; and as a result, countless shelters and rescues all over the country have been helped. Petful members earn Paw Points that can be redeemed as charitable donations.
Making Friends, Having Fun
All that serious stuff aside, we try to keep things fun and exciting here at Petful, because, let’s face it — who wants to be bored?
Petful is not just a website. It’s a community of people who have pets, just like you. You can join Petful for free, then start posting in our forums and make new friends. You can upload your pet’s photos and comment on other members’ pets. Don’t forget that you’ll earn Paw Points that can be used toward a cash donation to your favorite animal shelter or rescue!
