Sydney Dogs and Cats Home

Sydney Dogs and Cats Home is Sydney's only charity pound and community facility.

The initial project was some design updates to their home page and new content pages to update their dated website. As usual with charity websites they had many developers work on it over the years.

After the initial work and support agreement I continued to improve their website including a WP Theme rebuild & modernisation of their adoption pages.

When covid hit they saw a huge increase in requests for animal fostering and adoption which they were struggling to handle, their process was a mailto: link which would then involve lots of back and forth.

We introduced WP Forms to the website and built out new forms to collect all the information they needed to process the applications faster.

The new forms have seen over 2000 entries.
