The Regina Humane Society has, throughout the years, worked to improve the welfare of animals through programs and services in sheltering, education, protection and advocacy in the city of Regina and the surround area. They’re a pillar of the community and the first stop for most when planning on adopting an animal.
We worked alongside Kristian Fraser to design and develop an advanced website that will better showcase the services, events, news, and of course, their animals available for adoption. Tying into their current systems, we developed a custom importer to get animal data from Shelter Buddy, their animal management software. This data is then formatted into a custom post type with custom taxonomies and meta to allow users to filter pets available for adoption based on Animal Type, Breed, Age, and gender.
We’ve also recently upgraded this feature to allow their website to display recently found animals, allowing pet owners to keep an eye out for their lost pets, and hopefully provide some happy reunions. Their site has seen several upgrades between 2014 – 2016, including:
- Lost Pet Report which generates a PDF Poster for users and staff to display
- Found Pet Report which also generates a PDF poster
- Sponsors section
- Events Calendar with categorization and previews
- eCommerce integration with subscriptions and Moneris payment gateway integration.
- Annual Reports Archive
- and many more
We’re proud to be able to work with such an important charitable organization that is helping save lives on a daily basis.
