Shelter Affiliate Program FAQ

Why should we join?

Affiliate programs are a great way to raise funds for your shelter or rescue. The extra money can reduce a group’s reliance on donations or can be used to set up emergency funds for unexpected expenses. Your adopters are going to buy medications and supplies items for their pets, and many of them will buy from 1-800-PetMeds® at some point. By referring them to us, your group can also benefit by receiving needed funds.

How do we join?

Apply to join our nonprofit affiliate program here. Fill out the form with your rescue’s website information, and submit the completed application. Your application will be reviewed and once accepted, you will be able to log into your account through the affiliate dashboard. Here, you can search for the 1-800-PetMeds® advertiser listing and apply to the program. The shelter program invite will then be emailed to you, and you can opt-in to join.

How can we maximize earnings?

The more people you refer to shop with us, the more you can potentially earn. Since the affiliate program is tracked through links, think about sharing your affiliate link anywhere your group has an online presence. The supporter or affiliate section of your website is a great place to put our banner, and many groups like to share the links on social media and in emails.

You’ll also want to let your supporters know how shopping through us helps you! Include messages with your links, such as, “Place your first order with 1-800-PetMeds® and we’ll get $20 to help us save pets!”

How do we access our account information?

Once you’re accepted as an affiliate, you’ll have an account through our affiliate manager. You can keep track of your affiliate links, banners, text links and other supporting materials there. You can also track payment information and referrals as well.

Any other questions?
