We recently updated the A-Z Animals website and many of you will be aware we introduced a new 'Report Ad' feature to enable you to report inappropriate adverts.  Whilst we received a few genuine reports which we acted upon, we also received hundreds of reports from users who used this feature to complain about the general presence of advertising on A-Z-Animals.com.  A-Z Animals is funded entirely through the advertising on our website, we have no alternate sources of income and therefore this advertising is essential to maintain and grow the A-Z-Animals.com website.  It's really quite simple, without this advertising, A-Z-Animals.com would not exist!
