Launched in 2016, adoptable.co.uk aims to support the many voluntary organisations in the UK who are involved with pet rescue and pet welfare. The site supports national and local volunteer groups, organisations involved in cat rescue, dog rescue and general pet welfare. Adoptable.co.uk contains a directory of local pet rescue groups, sortable by region or name, each with a brief description of their activities and contact details to allow anybody who wants to adopt a a homeless cat or dog, or who wants to become a volunteer helper, to get in touch.
Pet welfare groups, whether they are volunteer groups or registered charities - many are both - can add details of theor organisation to the directory, and also create 'adverts' featuring any pets they have which need rehoming, allowing visitors to the site to browse through the many homeless cats and dogs in their region, or beyond, and get in touch if they are interested in giving one a home.
Adoptable isn't only for pet resuce groups though; private individuals who need to rehome their pets can also register on the site and create their own adoption adverts. We know that many people who find themeselves in the position of needing to rehome a loved pet don't want to surrender them to rescue centres and prefer to personally find and vet new owners. By allowing private pet owners to post private pet adoption adverts, Adoptable.co.uk aims to help them too.
Adoptable.co.uk needed to include a means to allow different types of user to register and create/edit/delete directory listings and adoption adverts. In this case, we chose to build the site using WordPress. Still in its early days, Adoptable is still building up visitor numbers. Once the site has 'settled down' and starts to get traffic, other sections will be added; things like a blog section, image galleries and so on.
Although we build websites for fun and get involved in quite a few voluntary and charitable sites in our own time, it's also our job! If you are interested in having a website for a business or organisation you are involved in, or even a personal website, speak to us. Our prices are more than affordable and you are guaranteed a professionally-built website that will do you proud, and personal service.
