I recently volunteered my time to build the new website Rescue4Dogs.com, a wonderful animal rescue organization based in Manhattan. I met the folks at Rescue4Dogs when I first took my older (rescue) Golden Retriever to swim at their sister organization, Water4Dogs. Over the years the W4D/R4D team has helped so many animals and individuals in need. When they approached me to help, my answer was overwhelmingly yes.
“Rescue4Dogs is perhaps the most unique animal shelter in New York City. On the premises, we have a veterinarian and full staff, daycare and grooming facility, behavioral trainers and a swimming pool outfitted especially for dogs. Jodi Richard, the founder of Water4Dogs, has adopted dogs in need for the last twenty years and she has an undying passion for rehabilitating those who seem to have no chance.”
I worked with the Rescue4Dogs team to pull together all of the materials for this site and then to build a simple, yet compelling site using WordPress. I turned to the team at ThemeTrust.com to purchase a great theme; which allowed me to build the site quickly, train the staff to post new dogs for adoption, and incorporate a strategy to post content on Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. Overall I had a very tight timeline to help Rescue4Dogs meet their launch date.
Rescue4Dogs is a tremendous organization that helps animals and families in need. I am more than happy to volunteer my time to work with them. Available dogs are here: http://rescue4dogs.com/available/
