Anipal Photo Hunt #16: My 2nd Job


Well, this Anipal Photo Hunt's an easy one for me... Aside from taking care of Mom and Him, which takes a LOT of time and effort, not to mention PATIENCE, I've also been the Editor-in-Chief of The Anipal Times since its inception in April of 2010 - a job I'm very proud of.

In case you don't know, The Anipal Times is an online newspaper by and for anipals and their humans. We have a staff of over forty volunteers - managers, writers, editors, cartoonists, advice columnists - from all around the world, whose goal is to publish a quality online newspaper for the animal community, or as we prefer to be called, anipals.
The Anipal Times
We publish new content every day: Real animal related news, online Twitter, Facebook, and blogging anipal news, announcements, book and movie reviews, interviews, health stories by our two resident veterinarians, Dr. V. (@pawcurious) and Dr. Peter Wedderburn (@petethevet), and really, you just have to go to www.anipaltimes.com and check it out to see what all we have. There's a lot!

We raise money for animal charities with our advertising revenue. All ad fees go to designated animal charities via the FirstGiving.org widget on the front page of The Anipal Times. No money touches our paws. We all work very hard and we do it all for the animals and for the anipal community.


We also have a monthly free drawing for our readers, in which companies donate animal related prizes valued at $50 or more, with winners chosen by www.random.org. All have been really great prizes!

As much as we love our jobs, it's all the more worthwhile when we can raise a good sum of money for our charities. This month's charity is www.hopeforpaws.org, and our donations have helped pay for surgery to help this sweet little blind dog see again:

Fiona Before - Blind

Fiona After - Sighted
If you'd like to support what we do, spread the word about us, tell the merchants you frequent about advertising in the AT, retweet and forward our articles, drop a dollar in our FirstGiving.org tip jar, comment on our articles, or write a letter to the Editor (me!)

If you want to advertise, via inexpensive donations to animal charities, to our animal loving demographic, please contact me at cokiethecat at anipaltimes.com. You can also place very inexpensive classified ads with announcements, items for sale or trade, etc.

I'm very happy to be part of such a wonderful pack, and I hope you enjoy reading the AT as much as we enjoy bringing it to you!

Yours truly,

Cokie the Cat
Editor-in-Chief
The Anipal Times
