Launched in 2017, adoptable.co.uk is a non-commercial website aimed at helping the hundreds of voluntary organisations in the UK concerned with pet rescue and pet welfare. This includes both national and local volunteer groups, organisations working in the area of cat rescue, dog rescue and general pet welfare. The site contains a small directory of these pet rescue groups, sortable by region or name, with a brief description of what they do, and the relevant contact details to allow people who are interested in adopting a homeless pet, or interesting in volunteering their services to get in touch.
Pet welfare groups that register on the site can create listings of any pets they have in their care that 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.
But it's not just for registered charities or recognised pet welfare groups; private individuals who need to rehome their pets can also register and create their own listings. Given that so many pet rescue groups are permanently full, even if pet owners want to surrender their pets, they are often unable to do so. Also, many caring and loving pet owners who are forced to find new homes for their pets don't want their pets to go into rescue homes and prefer to personally vet potential adopters. Adoptable.co.uk allows them to do exactly that.
Due to the necessary registration processes, and the automated system that allows users to create their own listings, edit and even delete them, Adoptable needed to be built on a CMS platform. The site is run by WordPress, the most popular website platform in the world these days. Still in its early days, the website is still building up visitor numbers but once it reaches a defined level, other sections will be added, allowing users to also post success stories and photos, partly to help the rescue centres they adopted their pets from, and partly to encourage others to follow the same path.
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.
