    I have an animal cruelty website and I get about 13K unique visitors per month, but I just can't seem to monetize the site properly.

    I'm only making a few dollars a day with adsense, I haven't found any good affiliate offers related to animal cruelty. There was one about donating to the ASPCA but that offer is now closed.

    Any ideas?

    Try
    Code:
    OfferVault.com
    to look for some CPA offers,
    your best bet would be to gather up an email list, and send them
    weekly newsletters along with an offer of some sort. You can also
    try selling banner space.

    Yea I looked at offer vault, nothing good for animals though. I wanted to put something related because I just don't think that its a market thats really motivated to buy anything that isn't animal related. But I could be wrong, thats why I'm here :p

    Consider advertising for or affiliate of animal related products. There are lots of online pet shops with affiliate offerings. Owners have an emotional connection with their animals, play on that - pet picture frames, etc. You can even take up donations and that can be added to the newsletter idea already suggested.

    I've seen some "win pet food for a year" type offers in a few different networks. There were also some petsmart/petco offers. You don't just have to use standard CPA networks that require and email submit or something. Think sales. Puppy training, pet beds, flea products, pet brushes, pet dental hygiene, pet collars, ASPCA... The list literally goes on and on. Do you own a pet? If so, think of the things that you would personally buy for it. Food, food dishes, nail clippers, soap to bathe it with (dogs mostly), toys, i.d. tags, doggie sweaters/snuggies.... If they're interested in animal cruelty, there's a 99.99999999% chance they own a pet. Put up a survey on your site and ask people what type of pet they have. Make it simple like a 4-5 animal voting poll. Then start offering promotions based on the type of animals the majority of your visitors have.

    any charity related stuff will work with these ppl. So if you don't find anything related to animal charity , try some other human charity stuff.

    good luck

    edit: quick search on offer vault for you :

    iGain.co.uk - Give to Charity ( Lazy Profits )
    Cutest Pet Contest ( Marketleverage )
    WSPA ( but that's only for AU traffic )

    so there are several offers for you to use

    Some organic pet food affiliate, organic medicine. Stuff the people can feel good about buying knowing it doesn't hurt the environment, animals or people.

    Have a petition sign up page, or a page that they can go to to "stop animal cruelty" and put up a content blocker. Make them fill out a CPA offer before they can continue :)
