Animal shelter websites
For many people, visiting an animal shelter is an anxious and uncomfortable process. Even with the nicest facility and stellar customer service, visitors can often feel overwhelmed or sad. More than ever, people are more likely to browse your website before visiting – and their decision whether to make that visit may depend on what they see online. A well-designed website filled with the right information can greatly help your public image and their experience with your organization before they even set foot in your shelter.
Your website should provide 24/7 public access to your organization’s contact information, hours of operation, descriptions of your services and fees, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs). By adding the ability to donate online or sign up for email news, you can greatly expand your support base and connect with potential adopters, donors and supporters beyond your community and the reach of your local media.
A key component to any animal shelter’s website is providing up-to-date adoption listings – these should include photos, a name and ID number, and a description of each animal’s personality and ideal home (as well as any restrictions on its placement.) And by making adoption applications available online and allowing for submission of applications via email, you can make it easier for out-of-town people to adopt from your organization – increasing the number of potential homes for your animals.
