This site was developed in cooperation with MetroPets.org, an organization that provides
free technical support to animal shelters, humane societies and rescue organizations in the
Washington, DC Metropolitan area.
This website is updated by the community education coordinator
at the Animal Welfare League. Because her primary job is not
the website, and she did not have the resources to either learn
or purchase a new web-editing program, the site as it is presented
today is in FrontPage, the web-editing software available.
I worked closely with her to design the site to her specifications.
The site was designed initially in hand-coded html. Several
mockups were presented to the client and finally a decision
was made. Once that decision was made, and the template was
set, the design was copied into FrontPage. I then trained the
client in the use of Front Page, with specific focus on the
templates and consistency of the site.
I have continued working with the Animal Welfare League to add
new features to their site, and train the client in the use
of photo editing software, to facilitate the eventual posting
of their adaptable animals.
