How does DogDog earn money?

Like any other search engine, DogDog earns money from the advertisements on our search results pages. These ads are clearly marked and are served up by our search partner Yahoo. DogDog receives a portion of the funds generated by these ads. We then donate 50% of our profits to dog shelters.

How much money is donated each quarter?

That depends on how many people use DogDog! The more people use it, the more we can give to dogs in need! Based on the revenue we receive, we have calculated that on average every search earns or about a penny for dog shelters. The funds listed on the homepage of DogDog are a combination of what has been earned on both DogDog and its sister site that has been raised for animals in need.

How does the money get donated?

DogDog works with partners like Adopt-A-Pet to distribute the funds to shelters in need and to further the mission of finding forever homes for shelter animals. Each quarter, we distribute funds that go towards paying for the care of dogs in shelters which includes providing them with food, medical services, adoption services, spay and neuter etc..

Can I keep track of how much money I've earned through my searches?

You sure can! On the DogDog homepage, you'll see a counter on the top right of the screen. You'll be able to keep track of how your searches are feeding animals in need!
